    We have about two dozen SVHOs in our group, spread among the FZ, FX and GP platform. Most with Stage 1 or 2 but a few Stage 3 as well. Not a single cracked head.

    They certainly did fix the pump and that was long overdue. I gave no reference to the pump tunnel or the transom in my post. The former is more than adequate for Stage 2 speeds and the later can...

    I have to admit, all these reports about bad handling with stock ride plate and porpoising with the Riva on the new FX is a big turn-off for me. I had planned to buy a new 2020 since they finally...

    Take a look at the SXR 1500. I’m buying one myself since I can no longer ride the SXR 800 in Lake Mead. Perfect for cruising and no problem with registration. Big, stable, quiet and fuel efficient. ...

    I personally think the 2020 310X is the best looking PWC on the market for next season.

    That is exactly what I would do as well if I had piston problems on an Ultra. We use the Wössner pistons on high-horsepower Turbo-Hayabusas a lot and they are great.

    I will just address a few of the points you made in your essay.

    The broken timing chains affected almost only SVHO engines during 2014-2015. Yamaha is replacing them with brand new, updated...

    How are those beautiful and perfectly color-matched Ultras working out for you Chris? There is more to a PWC than looks. I loved my Ultras, I had two; a 250 when they first came out in 2007 and later...

    At first, I wasn’t impressed with the color choices Yamaha made on the 2020 PWCs, but after looking at them for a while, I think they will look better on the water than in pictures.

    I would suggest a leak down test and a borescope of the crowns of the pistons.

    Motul is typically the winner of objective tests of high-end motorcycle oils and I use it in all my bikes as well. I use Kawasaki’s oil for my SXR and Yamalube for my FX SVHO to protect the fragile...

    If possible, would be great if you could swap them at the lake so both runs were within 15-20 min of each other.

    It’s very difficult to achieve parity between RPM and MPH on a GP, never mind an FX. Anticipate at least 300-500 more RPM than MPH.

    I'm sure Hotbutta is fully aware the VXR is NA. However, it is an interesting proposition to "intercool" the air going into a normally aspirated engine. Of course an Air to Air intercooler wouldn't...

    100 hours is twice what the SHO manual recommends; once per season or 50 hours, whichever comes first. I personally change mine more frequently than that. Yamalube to protect the clutch.
