    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...

    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...

    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:

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

    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.

  13. 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...

    That's why we're using the phrase, "out the door." To me, when you add in things like a trailer, YES, covers, etc. you start to muddy the water. You're right. There is no way to completely compare...

    So a week ago I take my friend and I take out my two, old-school 2-strokes. He rode the '97 GP1200 and I rode the '94 Raider. The GP ran great but the Raider had some bogging on acceleration but...
