    I also would love to catch a launch from out on the water. Much better than dealing with the crowds and traffic etc viewing from land.

    If Starship works out as planned it will change the space...

    Fair enough regarding the ECU send off, that isn't without it's dramas. But as for the warranty thing I don't think the flash affects that, certainly not at Brisbane Kawasaki anyway.

    I think if you are looking at this, it is well worth paying the extra to get the full ECU flash.

    Almost certainly yes, they will be. In fact I don't think they have changed anything mechanically, and besides, that speed restriction is what keeps all 3 major brands (somewhat) off the authority's...

    Another likely lost sale due to the Kawasaki CEO and corporate team still not addressing this significant issue that they definitely must know all about.

    If you can test ride an Ultra 310 and it...

    Unless you are going with alcohol fuel, in your shoes and going for power I would stick with 8.5 and put as much boost in as it will take reliably (generally somewhere around 20 PSI for 93 octane). ...

    Yeah with cars I don't think anyone runs above 9:1.

    But one thing to be careful with is the consistency. They can mix anything from 15% to 30% fossil gas into the ethanol and still call it E85...

    Welcome (back) to here.

    I can't help much with the 250s, but I can say that you have the right hull for your use case. I am up in the Whitsundays and my usage is similar - off shore island...

    I personally am a fan of doing a very early oil change after engine break in regardless of manufacturer recommendations, and then in fact another not long after that.

    As an example from the...

    That is so much better than mine.

    Really shows the price you pay for a deep hull in the ultra. Even if I also cruised at 40mph, I don't think it would use much less fuel at all than at 50. ...

    With less supply and more demand than ever, the incentives to make real performance changes just don't seem to be present unfortunately. If Yamaha or Seadoo had come out with a 320 hp ski, maybe the...

    Well that really seems to confirm it is a great build. Did you have to refuel at any point? If I ride mine in eco mode at around 50mph I will hit the fuel light from an overfilled tank before 60...

    I'm with Steve on this one, the Ultra hull is the go to for riding in chop or ocean swell. With more hull in the water it will take a little more power and fuel to push it, but that is the price you...

    I don't see the Mexico plant as good news really. Expanding the USA operations definitely is good news however.

    The only reason to go to Mexico is to save money on labour, and we all know it. ...

    Have to agree with Mike here. My 310 is the same Ultra hull of course, and if you want stability at rest so you can move around etc the Fishpro would have to be better, due to its flatter hull...

    In the Australian city of Brisbane in times of yore, F1-11s used to do flyovers of the city every year and do a dump and burn, reasonably low too. So the festival had the nickname Riverfire.

    Yeah they definitely run higher than that. Mine is 15-16 PSI on the factory dash, a future addition will be a proper boost gauge but I imagine that is pretty close to reality. Compression is 8.5:1,...

    I think it actually could have been the early stages of detonation, because although they state minimum octane requirements, they are probably marginal at that limit. So fresh 90 octane is ok but...

    Could it possibly be that the fuel pump isn't getting enough electrical power? Could you have a problem with the charging system and maybe the battery as well? If it is only charging intermittently...

    Surely it would have to be the new 22 model, now that they have gone to the Fibreglass hull. Not sure if the hull shape will enable it to match the Ultra in absorbing waves off shore, but if I was...

    Absolutely, just like with my fast bikes and cars I do extra maintenance and servicing above the requirements. The old exhaust filter looked to be in great shape but I changed it anyway.
