    Filling the hull is a good idea, that's how I found the leak coming from the bearing housing rubber. Maybe also consider putting a GoPro(or knock off) camera with alight and ride around a bit. I've...

    Did they fix this piston issue yet on current year models? I was contemplating selling my 2012 and getting something new. I wish Kawi came out with something completely new, and I also with Yamaha...

    When attending the AC boat show you will barely see Kawasaki there.. They usually get one of the smaller dealers to put a few skis in with the boat brands they sell. Yamaha and SeaDoo will usually...

    I have heard of hose issues but you seem to have the luck for sure..O:)... What are you replacing the hoses with? The only JetSki I've had a cooling hose go was on my 2003 12F, the 300x still seems...

    Itís called the exhaust filter. Do a search on here and youíll see unfortunately it is a big deal. At 50 hours you may be able to get away with more time but I just replace mine every 2 years to...

    Just put a SCOM on it and enjoy as It's the best rough water PWC you can get.. If you are dead set on only speed and don't care about rough water then do what Aquaholic said and buy the Yamaha.

    I find it odd that they are making the new STX160 and still will have the 15F. Seems kinda redundant.

    I'm shocked that they include those crappy wire quick tap things with their kit. Even on an ATV you're gonna corrode the crap out of the wire you tap into so imagine the issues on a PWC.

    Seeings how the new STX160 is nothing more than an updated 15F, I find it odd that they left the 15F in the lineup. Glad they finally did something though..

    Also check the water outlet pipe under the Intake. I'm not sure what year you have but the early ones would corrode badly. The design was changed a bit in later models.

    Gotta get in there with a feeler gauge to know for sure. Not sure what the spec in on the LX but the factory service manual would have all the info you need.
