    I fish a 2012 fxsho offshore in the gulf out of Texas and would strongly recommend the FX hull. I've also ridden the vx in the gulf and you'll be limiting yourself with it. It takes a lot more work...

    How much for the glove compartment? Just the plastic box, not the lid and latch, but I could do it all if you didn't want to split it.

    The strap doesn't fit because the box and strap were designed for SLA batteries, but you have an AGM. I have that exact battery from Advanced Auto and it is the right battery.

    After about an hour of the engine running continuously and cruising/hard riding today, I think we've got water in the oil, and not just condensate. There was milky oil and bubbles on the dipstick...

    Thanks, all. Any harm in running it hard today to see if the water burns off?

    This is not the oil cooler on my ski just from looking at it.

    And I figured out what that plastic piece is. It was glued to the valve cover over the timing chain.

    CJ, Thanks!

    With the valve cover off, I honestly have to admit I don't know what I'm looking at and can't tell if it's water. Now that it hasn't run in a couple of hours, I don't see any more...

    Bubbles on Oil Cap

    I've got a 2012 FX SHO, and there are bubbles on my oil cap after running on the hose for 2-3 minutes. Is this normal? It is not overfilled--about half-way on the dip stick.
