    It looks to me like from 2017, and on, all's well. 2015 / 2016 there are some sporadic Piston issues here and there. JB

    My 2015 Ultra 310 toasted a Piston, and it was rebuilt by KAW Warranty. The Ski runs great. JB

    Yep, those are the same Pistons they used for my 2015 Ultra 310 rebuild. You've got a brand new "rock solid" engine. Why not just go riding and not worry about it! JB

    I do not spray "anything" inside the Hull on my Ultras. In my post rode procedure / wash down, I remove every drop of water inside the Hull. Therefore, sprays of any kind are not needed. Too, some...

    For Trailer testing "any" RPM is OK. I would just make sure the Ski is tied down to the Trailer very very well, and it's deep enough so you can get water into the cooling lines.

    Realistically...

    Do you have the SCOM on this Ski? If so, are you getting any Fault Codes on your Dash Board?

    If you do have the SCOM, the fittings may be "loose" or not set up correctly. JB

    On one of my Ultras, the Exhaust Filter is @ 90 hrs. At 100 hrs I will replace it regardless of what it looks like.

    If the Ski is properly cared for (meaning flushed correctly as needed), this...

    I would re think the 100 mph idea. A few years back, Nicolas Rius (an exceptionally talented Pro Jet Ski Racer) got tossed of a VXR that was going about 95 mph. He was pretty sore after that!

    Actually you will. 7 x 22 = 154. You can get 22 Gals into an Ultra Tank. 15f will get 7 mpg with correct throttle control. I have done it! JB

    Hold the Phone! Did any of you look at the Specs? This new Ski has the Ultra Tank. . . That makes this a 150+ mile / per Tank Ski (on 87 Octane). JB

    Let me be clear . . . I wasn't "happy"; I came very close to spending the night on that thing! I will add though that between SD, YAM, and KAW, I do think that KAW treats their customers the best.

    Well, my 2015 SE Ultra is back up and running. And running great! It was, in fact, a Piston issue in #3 Cylinder. Yes, at 17 hours, a Piston issue is a tough pill to swallow . . . but,

    This one here. I have had it for 10 years, countless oil changes done with it. It still works good as new. JB

    The STX-R existed for Model years 2002 to 2005. 2002 was the best year. I owned a 2002 and 2004, and the 2002 was quicker, faster, lighter . . . You couldn't buy an STX-R in CA, but you could buy...

    10K seems like on the high end of the scale to me. But if both Skis in good shape could be a good deal.

    Truthfully, these Skis don't require much more maintenance than the NA version. The...

    Yes it sucks! The "good news" is the other 2 Ultras are running well.

    To be honest, in the back of mind I thought that this could happen. A few months ago Double Tap had posted his Piston woes...

    2015 Ultra SE Down . . .

    At 17 Hours, Looks like my 2015 Ultra SE is down. When I got back to the Dock, the Air Box was filled with Oil (maybe 2 Qts), there was "zero" Oil on the Dipstick. And the visible Oil in the engine...

    Unless you have first hand knowledge of this Skis history, I would say it's "mandatory" that you see it run. Even better, take it out for a quick test ride if that can be arranged. JB

    Honestly, if you are not really sure than I would just drain the tank anyway (siphon the old gas out). If you do have contaminated gas you run the risk of rusting the fuel pickup, fuel injectors,...

    Chris288 this is getting stranger by the day! The problem has to be in one of these 3 areas:

    1. Fuel
    2. Spark
    3. Air

    If they are saying it's not the Fuel Pump, then to me it has to be in...

    Sir B I would consider this "good news". Replacing the Fuel Pump assembly with a new one should be pretty simple to do.
