Top speed is 58 (boat GSP) or 60 (Garmin GSP). With all this said, should I even worry about it?
No worries. What-so-ever. That is one bad a$$ Chaparral, and I wouldn't change a thing other than maybe look into the battery charging situation.

Let's keep in mind @Dean P is running a BRP powerplant and pump so no major changes in 2019, IIRC (the 2019 new pumps are introduced in Yamaha lineup).

WOW I totally missed the make sorry! in that case the impeller is easy to change and the pumps have replaceable liners and you probably have a throttle body sensor or M E P M issue . And most definitely inspect the ground wires at the engine as I always had issues with the sea doo ground wires and it's a sea doo inside.

@swatski I purchase the same battery backup and NOCO plug as you. Where did you install/mount your plug?

You will love the comfort and convenience of an onboard charger!

Update--I hooked up the 2-bank charger to the batteries. This thing is awesome! Both engines start right up; no hesitation. @swatski Thank you!
Now, I need to hook-up the Can-doo to erase the error codes.

Update: I hooked up the Candoo and erased all error codes. But, the e-reverse module error came back. Also got the error code saying the battery had low voltage. Today I installed 2 new batteries and charged them.

I check the fuse (one with the black lever by the battery switch) and it was good. The boat starts fine but the e-reverse code will not allow the buckets to move.

Is there something else I could check or suggestions I could try?
