    We did have a very nice, warm (temps well up in the 70s) Tuesday here just north of Houston. The wind was light and my family took all three 4-strokes out. We burned almost all of the old gasoline...

    Yeah, it's unbelievable hot here in Houston in the summer. However, the Houston winters are W O N D E R F U L !!! It was 77 degrees and bright sunshine today.

    I got my 2012 VXS out on the water...

    grumpy, you bring up a good point about "winterizing" my skis. I live on the lake and all of my skis are launchable within minutes. Living just north of Houston, the weather is often warm enough to...

    K447, thank you for that advice. I hadn't thought of that. All three of my 4-strokes are sitting at about 1/3-1/2 tank right now.

    Guys, the last time I had any of my skis out on the water was on 5 Nov 19. Not quite 3 months as of this writing. Three other skis probably have been sitting idle since sometime in September. That...

    K447, You are ***THE MAN*** =D>=D>=D> !!! Thank you for all of that incredible information. I'm going to buy the parts to build the wiring harness and make up the fuel hose with the metal...

    Yes! If you could find the information of which wire powers up the fuel pump, that would be great. I also need to know how to disconnect the fuel line from the fuel rail.

    Thanks, Steve. I'll look into that. It seems like my tanks are under an area that may make this more difficult due to accessibility.
  9. I want to remove the older fuel from my GP1800R, VXR and VXS

    It's not totally necessary but I'm just getting uncomfortable about the aging ethanol gas in these skis. None of them has been out on the water in 3-4 months and with my lake's water level 2' lower...

    I agree. This is what my problem was about 6 years ago. I was a saltwater boater living near the beach in north Florida. My OEM stainless steel wear ring got saltwater behind the SS liner and...

    That's the key to minimal carb rebuilds. I don't have readily available ethanol free gas where I live and I'm tearing into the carbs of my two, 2-stroke skis every single year. Supposedly there is...

    Other people have ridden this ski over the summer buy today was the first time I've ridden it in a while. The water was very smooth and the wind was calm so there wasn't anything to affect the ride...

    Thank you, Jerry!! I thought that my VXR and VXS were incredible machines and I still do. However, this GP1800R is a huge step above those skis. It's in a completely different league!

    Thanks...

    Thank you! I was out of town on Saturday but I was glad to get out later on Sunday afternoon to take advantage of the hot weather that we've still got. I was surprised by how many boats and skis...
  15. Top speed on a completely stock, 1.9 hour, 2019 GP188R

    It was a solid 90+ degrees yesterday afternoon and I took my brand new, just broken in GP out for some fun. Once I got out o the no-wake zone, I nailed it and my wrist-mounted gps shot to over 70...

    This has got me picturing a "saltwater turd." If he admits that he hasn't been diligent about flushing the ski, it may be because the engine compartment corrosion is so bad that you know he didn't...

    Renner, yesterday I took my 1994 Raider out for the first time in about 5 weeks for a test ride after all of the fuel system/oil line replacement work I've recently completed.

    I've owned the ski...

    Thanks, K for all of that information. You pointed me to several things that I can look at. This is one that looks like it could really help to seal up the water:

  19. Brand new GP1800R leaking water into the front compartment. "Rattles" hitting chop.

    I was out yesterday with my brand new ski. Wife was on the VXS and daughter on the VXR.

    I finally passed 1.5 hrs so the break-in is complete :) . It was a little rough yesterday and I noticed a...

    I'm curious, Bw. What aftermarket pipe does the one Raider have?

    My wife actually asked me if some plastic model cement (which we have) would work. I've also got JB Weld. I told her that I'd clean the plastic cap up and see if some glue would work.

    I was...
  22. Oil tank cap is broken-1994 WaveRaider

    The oil cap is broken on my '94 Raider. An OEM oil cap is $16.49. Certainly wouldn't financially break me but come on! I'm a "all about value" guy and it just doesn't sit well with me to have to...

    I've got the same purple hulled '94 Raider as you. I've owned it since it was brand new.

    I just replaced the oil lines (for the second time) about a week ago. I had some leftover, blue line that...
