    Welcome aboard, cato3!

    FREE isn't such a great deal in a lot of cases. It's easy to spend more in repairs than the 'Ski is worth.

    I've never had trouble with my inspection camera working in gasoline. That said, the filter inside the Ultra 150 won't clog up and block fuel flow. It warps and gas simply flows around it. It's a...

  9. Think You Don't Have To Use Antifreeze For Winter Storage?

    I just picked up a '96 750 STS from the Dallas, TX area. Note the crack in the expansion chamber.

    This is the second one we've seen like this, the other came from the Austin, TX area.

    There are rumors of a 350 HP, but the Kawasaki website doesn't confirm it. Only an updated version of the STX-15F (STX-160), in addition to the one that's been around for years.

    The impeller is like a bell on the end of a long shaft. Each power stroke is like hitting the driveshaft with a hammer, causing the 'bell' to ring. They all do it.

    It's far easier to install the pistons inside the cylinders. ;)

    You can also use large hose clamps. Install them tight, then loosen them just enough to allow them to slide over the rings.
