    I got about 30hrs out of my "newer one" and I never spun it up much past 8100-8200. Not worth it.

    Sounds about right, Not surprising this time a year. 107 hours is nothing. Always good to ramp up on the throttle when you start up riding after the ski has been sitting or idling a long...

    most likely just condensation. You can always take out and pressure test it. I haven't heard of any failures of the newer style ICs.

    Check for a popped off hose on the IC or loose connector. Take a wrench a snug every clamp. Check for loose connector.

    If your not hitting 8040 rpm then a tune won't help you more than a SCOM....unless you add significant mods. It's not nearly as fast a hull as your GP1800....don't expect the same wow factor out of...

    1. No

    2. Yes

    I think the maintenance free part goes away after you change the wheel out for a bigger one. If it was installed correctly and only had 17hrs on it, I wouldn't expect much issue...

    I know more than a few people that run up around 8800 including myself for many hours on just retainers and stock springs.

    That being said, I'm personally careful not to let the engine over rev. ...

    It’s really just not worth the trouble IMO. I’ve seen plenty of logs on my skis and other very modified skis and I’ve yet to have any concern. If your having cooling issues it’s probably something...

    I always used riva grates on my older txs. Way worth it, maybe loose 1mph in dead calm water but in every other condition you’ll be faster since the pump stays hooked up.

    They do voodoo magic, my glen prop looks like a work of art. Pitch blocked/trued/balanced/race finished/diameter milled to perfection. Hard to do with average garage tools.
