    I would re think the 100 mph idea. A few years back, Nicolas Rius (an exceptionally talented Pro Jet Ski Racer) got tossed of a VXR that was going about 95 mph. He was pretty sore after that!

    Actually you will. 7 x 22 = 154. You can get 22 Gals into an Ultra Tank. 15f will get 7 mpg with correct throttle control. I have done it! JB

    Hold the Phone! Did any of you look at the Specs? This new Ski has the Ultra Tank. . . That makes this a 150+ mile / per Tank Ski (on 87 Octane). JB

    Let me be clear . . . I wasn't "happy"; I came very close to spending the night on that thing! I will add though that between SD, YAM, and KAW, I do think that KAW treats their customers the best.

    Well, my 2015 SE Ultra is back up and running. And running great! It was, in fact, a Piston issue in #3 Cylinder. Yes, at 17 hours, a Piston issue is a tough pill to swallow . . . but,

    This one here. I have had it for 10 years, countless oil changes done with it. It still works good as new. JB

    The STX-R existed for Model years 2002 to 2005. 2002 was the best year. I owned a 2002 and 2004, and the 2002 was quicker, faster, lighter . . . You couldn't buy an STX-R in CA, but you could buy...

    10K seems like on the high end of the scale to me. But if both Skis in good shape could be a good deal.

    Truthfully, these Skis don't require much more maintenance than the NA version. The...

    Yes it sucks! The "good news" is the other 2 Ultras are running well.

    To be honest, in the back of mind I thought that this could happen. A few months ago Double Tap had posted his Piston woes...

    Yes, this Ski has the extended WARR. I bought this Ski in 2017; so the WARR is still in effect. JB

    2015 Ultra SE Down . . .

    At 17 Hours, Looks like my 2015 Ultra SE is down. When I got back to the Dock, the Air Box was filled with Oil (maybe 2 Qts), there was "zero" Oil on the Dipstick. And the visible Oil in the engine...

    Unless you have first hand knowledge of this Skis history, I would say it's "mandatory" that you see it run. Even better, take it out for a quick test ride if that can be arranged. JB

    Honestly, if you are not really sure than I would just drain the tank anyway (siphon the old gas out). If you do have contaminated gas you run the risk of rusting the fuel pickup, fuel injectors,...

    Chris288 this is getting stranger by the day! The problem has to be in one of these 3 areas:

    1. Fuel
    2. Spark
    3. Air

    If they are saying it's not the Fuel Pump, then to me it has to be in...

    Sir B I would consider this "good news". Replacing the Fuel Pump assembly with a new one should be pretty simple to do.

    Hopefully Chris288 sees these recent Posts, and can take the appropriate...

    Chris288 it sure sounds like an ECU issue to me. They should be able to do an ECU swap and see what happens . . .

    Wow, what a mess. What I would do is get a hold of the KAW Rep personally and meet him at your local riding spot (ASAP). Let him/her ride the Skis and go from there. . . .

    maybe he didnt tighten the oil filter correctly

    My bet is that one right there . . . I have seen many Posts about this; with this being the cause. Good news is your engine is likely OK. JB
