    No, but that doesn't mean that it couldn't happen. Since you're suspicious of low compression, run a compression check. If you don't own a compression gauge, go to your local Autozone, Advance Auto...

    Due to being bummed out you may not feel like it but I encourage you to read my thread here:

    Your dealer is lying through his teeth. If your ski will only do 52 on gps, then even the standard, low performance VX skis are faster than yours. It really sounds like you got a lemon of a ski.

    Using genuine Mikuni rebuild kits is an absolute must. They're not cheap. It's going to set you back about $150 for three of these kits.

    My mistake. It was T_Striker in post #25, not you.

    I have never felt that any of my slightly leaning skis would cause me to fall off if I tried to turn while at idle speed. I do agree that with...

    I think these modern skis do pull a little juice while they're in the locked mode. Sometimes, one or more of my skis may sit for 6 weeks without being used. I can tell that the cranking speed is a...

    Jerry, you got me hook, line and sinker with your thread's title! I guess we'll have to wait 8 more days!

    Aqappert, I showed my wife the picture of your ski floating and we talked a little bit about your situation. If you were here actually talking to us, we'd probably learn a lot more.

    Anyway, I...

    I forgot about your description of the leaning when you and a passenger are on it. You're in bad situation because Yamaha just deferred to the dealer who isn't going to do anything for you.

    I'm looking at the picture that you posted and the lean isn't all that bad from what I can see. I'm looking at the U-shaped hooks on either side of the retractable step. The ski is leaning to the...

    I'm sure the bucket of cleaner will do a good job. I'm still going to recommend that you use the spray cleaner the way I described to make 100% sure the low speed outlet and bypass holes are clear. ...

    That's a great find on the USA made Mikuni replacement bolts/screws. $8.10 each if you buy two sets. Not bad at all!

    Right. That 2-stroke outboard oil won't be a problem with your ski.

    I would suggest that you try your power impact driver first. Mine works awesome and can loosen screws that I wouldn't be able to loosen with a screwdriver. Just make sure you use a bit that really...

    Are you 100% certain you got the exhaust back together properly? If it's leaking exhaust, it could be smothering out the engine. Been there, done that!

    I'm sure you didn't hurt anything by running the Seafoam. When I owned the Sea Doos, one time I got a giant black spot that shot out of the exhaust of one of the skis. Kind of scared me because I'd...

    Right! Right! You'd think with my skis sitting a mere two feet off of the water I'd be riding them all the time. Sadly, even though I've owned my GP1800R for 11 months, I still haven't put 10 hrs...

    Do what Hurricane recommends. These 1.8L engines can be hard on the spark plugs and many people have solved their skis' running problem just by installing a new set.

    I went back to the beginning of this thread just to make sure I knew what you'd done or haven't done to your ski.
