    Arctic might be on to something. If not tongue weight, it might have to do with towing a trailer that isn't level.

    I had two tow vehicles... main one was a 2000 Jeep Cherokee and backup was a...

    Very common problem with the FX140/SR140 ECU. The signal from the ECU just holds the injector open and it dumps fuel into the cylinder. The telltale signs are a rough running motor and a sheen of...

    Probably dating myself with this pic, but does this get me automatic acceptance in Texas?

    Well, I'll start shopping for the Caddy... just have to make sure the A/C works.

    Meanwhile, I'm trying to learn all the words to Luckenbach Texas so that I can fit in with Waylon, Willie and the...

    Well, Danny.... hindsight is always 20/20. But at least you're smart enough to address it now instead of neglecting the ski. If I remember correctly, the user or service manual doesn't mention...

    That's it... I'm moving to Texas. Is the house next door for sale? I'll sell my boat and skis and just mooch off of you.



    When it snows, it's twice as deep next to the boat with the snow that...

    I have 5 Yamaha motors in the yard. Keeping them running all winter would become a part-time job... especially if it snows and I have to dig them out to get access. Proper storage prep is the right...

    The "quick education" requested was about the differences between the pumps. That part of the lesson was completed.

    The speculation about the physics behind the differences was a topic for...

    Wow... if your skis are sitting that long, you need to address more than just the fuel. Hopefully, you fogged the motors. Two Yamaha motor killers are valve corrosion and sticking piston rings,...

    My point exactly. The OP indicates that the layup will be 6-7 months, which is not excessive. Not sure how much fuel is in his tanks, but stabilizer now and topping off in the spring might be a...

    I wasn't planning to use it in the ski, which is why I siphoned it out.

    The point was that this was an extreme situation and the gasoline wasn't totally useless.

    Here in NY, the boat and skis...

    Pro is correct. By usual boating rules, PWC was the stand-on vessel and boat was the give-way vessel.

    Only issue I see with the rider is that he said his view was blocked by a yacht. If he was...

    In a related topic... I wonder if it's necessary to drain the fuel or if using stabilizer will keep the fuel good for a long time.

    Last summer, I picked up a Kawasaki STX-DI with a reg that...

    That's why I acknowledged that you did it the right way.

    But I do make the final electrical connections to a battery that is outside of the hull, on the ground, to avoid making sparks near the...

    Damn, K... I guess that's the right way to do it.

    I just remove the connector from the pump and use a pair of wires with alligator clips at each end.

    Also, I remove the fuel line from the top...

    But the HP on the title doesn't mean much. I have a 2003 FX140 with an HO motor. Another member on this forum dropped a SHO motor into an older...

    Didn't need the additional pics. The first set ID it as a 2006-2008 FXHO or painted FX140.

    With the decals removed, it's tough to tell the exact year. You need to check the last 2 digits of the...

    I was just about to post the same thing. It's a 2006, 2007 or 2008 FXHO (which were all black) or FX140 painted black.

    The mirrors, hood, rear deck and grab bar are the key identifying features.

    It's all about the hub size. The HO pump has a wider hub in the center. Otherwise, the parts are pretty much the same. The impeller shafts are interchangeable between the FX models, but some other...

    Don't know if this would work with a fly-by-wire throttle, but it's a simple solution that's worth looking into. Years ago, on a school trip, I rented a snowmobile. The top speed was "governed" by...

    Not sure about your ski, but a lot of the hull parts are made from colored plastic with a layer of clearcoat. Paint might not hold up very well.

    Key thing now is to remove it without damaging that mid-wall. The bearing seal holds back the water pressure from the jet pump, so it needs to be a good seal. If you do any damage to the mid-wall,...
