    I wouldn't replace the carbon rings unless you have symptoms of wear such as:

    I believe (contrary to what I used to believe about service contracts) it is the best money spent on any new PWC. There are simply too many problem areas with all brands. I spent about $1,100 on a...

    Mine were replaced by my tech so I don't know. I believe it's just a matter of removing the valve cover and installing new tubes.

    Sometimes revving the engine while putting the reverse bucket down and up will dislodge the debris. I have towing insurance for these kind of issues. It isn't possible to plan for every potential...

    What a great endorsement and I am also a believer in the 15F. It sounds like you had a very freakish flaw in the intake manifold. I also had a stall on my stock 2015 15F and had my mechanic put a...

    It sounds like you have a good dealer and I would have taken that deal too. I would get out of the activity if I had a suitable replacement hobby. As everyone (should) know, there aren't any better...

    I'd ask why it's being sold with only 9 hours and if the warranty will transfer. Yes, you can do a visual of the impeller but the scratches on the hull wouldn't concern me because the Yamaha hulls...

    If you don't have any operating symptoms, there's nothing to worry about. Consider my situation-I can't hear the beeps because of my hearing loss. I just drive until it runs out of fuel, it sinks,...

    You should absolutely fog with that period of non-use. DO NOT run it periodically-this promotes condensation in the engine that will not be burned off with short run times. The main reason for...

    I would just buy a different brand of mixer, like CRC, that is much cheaper than a Salt-Away branded one. I just bought a Salt-Away mixer and it leaks no matter how tight I screw the bowl on. At a...

    This is a broad generalization-if a ski (of any brand) is properly cleaned after use in salt water it will provide a satisfactory service life. If you can get a newer 15F with a trailer for $5K in...

    If the speedometer reads around 65 you're fine but the pump may be in bad condition. A pump failure is usually caused by water intrusion which corrodes the bearings. In salt water use the wear ring...

    I would NEVER use gasoline to clean something. It's a good way to blow something up, or worse, burn yourself.

    I have that exact model and it is used exclusively in salt water. I bought it new in '16 and it has about 190 HR and I'm very happy with it. I flush with Salt Away but that isn't necessary. A weak...
