    I, too, have purchased thousands of dollars in parts from a number of suppliers. I've only received one wrong part, Yamaha mis-labelled a a bolt. In fact, I've gotten several incorrect Yamaha parts...

    I'm glad you're not asking for much. :roll:

    As mentioned, the Kawasaki STX-15F will come close. Perhaps it will hit 70 with an aftermarket impeller. It's an old hull design that will ride a bit...

    The Yamaha and Kawasaki lanyard clips look very similar, but are different thicknesses. You can pick up a generic lanyard at most any marine/power sports dealer that will fit Yamaha, Kawasaki, and...

    Fatality

    Two of my co-workers tried to assist a man that died as a result of a PWC accident Saturday, at Lake E.V. Spence in Robert Lee, Texas.

    Oh, I've owned 3 Waverunners and still have my Yamaha boat! I find them to generally be ridiculously hard to work on, hence I own mostly Kawasaki.

    I would assume that you cleaned the internal filters, correct? New O-rings on the fuel rails and needle valve seats? Pop-off about 15 PSI? Chokes installed? Factory flame arrestor?

    I think that for best results, you need to do it when it's warm. Stretch the material before stapling. I think mine was a little cool, allowing small wrinkles to form when it got hot.
