  1. EXR engine a bit unrefined? Poor NVH at upper RPM normal?

    I broke in my EXR by the book and now I can start running it hard. I noticed a bit of vibration and poor NVH in the upper RPM ranges. Is that normal or should I be concerned?

    I have to put registration stickers on my EXR, I was hoping to get them done in yellow to match the yellow accents. Has anybody else done so? Any suggestions on where to get vinyl or companies who...

    We ended up making a deal on the EXR. My wife liked the way she fit on it better than anything else we looked at. The dealer gave us a better price than I expected, I'll be signing the paperwork...

    Thanks for the feedback. My concern with the bigger machines is that they'll feel like boats.

    EXR vs STX-15F

    My old Kawasaki is done, the ECU went out and I'm ready to just sell it for parts and move on to something brand new. My budget leaves me with a few options, but I think I'm narrowed down to an EXR...

    I was thinking maybe pressure build up on hot days is pushing fuel through the return line, is there a check valve or something that should prevent that? I'm going to pull the carbs and rebuild...

    That's unlikely, I've owned the machine for 9 years and I've never removed them. This is a newer condition.

    It's definitely filling with fuel, I have been checking it before attempting to start. Once I clear the fuel and start it, the machine runs fine.

    Also, should I be concerned about my crank bearings and seals if they're sitting in gas a lot?
  11. ZXI 1100 crankcase fills with fuel when sitting

    My ZXI 1100 crankcase fills with fuel when sitting. I ordered a carb rebuild kit thinking it was the needle and seat on one of the carbs, but now I'm thinking my problem is something else. Last time...

    I ended up leaving it in one moreweek, it started within 10sec again this week. Hopefully this is the new trend.

    Probably, will be a spring project. I'm pulling it out of the water for the winter this weekend.
  14. May have a potential solution to the ZXI 1100 hard starting issue

    My jet ski fired right up today after sitting for three weeks. The only thing I did differently was shutting the gas off when I shut it off last time. I think the carbs were slowly leaking fuel into...

    Just wondering, do I even need to replace pistons or should I consider just doing a set of rings?

    Also, quick research shows these are sleeved cylinders and not plated cylinders. I'll be getting them inspected regardless.

    I would consider OEM, but it looks like I'd have to buy all the parts seperately if I go that route. Not a big deal, just more legwork. My main concern is getting decent longevity out of it. Ideally...

    Pistons: are Wiseco worth the cost over WSM?

    I'm in the process of tearing down my ZXI 1100 to do some maintenance. Compression was starting to get low (under 110psi), so I think I'm going to put in a new top end. I'm pricing out parts and it...
  20. GP1300R oil injection, any tips for reliability

    I blew up my GP1300R. I haven't been inside the engine yet to determine the exact cause, but with only 68 hours on it I suspect it was an oil issue vs a worn piston that just gave out. Right now I'm...

    Putting it in the water puts a load on the engine. If that's causing it to die, I'd suspect it's not getting enough fuel. Start with the carbs.

    If they're as good as described, $4K isn't bad. What I never understand though is why somebody wouldn't fix the machine before trying to sell it. If it's an "easy fix" and the parts are only $175,...
