    Welcome aboard, ETKILIAN!

    I'm planning to follow Ultra 15f's lead and build one of these things. I've got a hull, I've got an engine, I've picked up a blown crankcase from Smokeysevin for test...

    Running it lean is a sure fire way to burn up the engine. Do a compression test to see if any damage has already occurred. Post pictures of the firing ends of the spark plugs. Plan to overhaul the...

    Glad you got it out OK.

    I had trouble with spark plug boots a year ago and the only thing I had available to put on them was Teflon pipe thread sealant. It seems to be working quite well.

    Sounds like it's not getting fuel. Plugged injectors, perhaps?

    Could be a problem with the rebuilt EMM or something.

    I'm not the one to ask about performance mods. Of course, higher compression will give you more power.

    As far as temps, the cylinders don't all run the same. That's why some engines have...

    Yes, I think periodic strap replacement will be on my list of maintenance items.

    I was really surprised when I broke a strap on my nephew's trailer hoisting an old STS 750. I don't think those...

    That's a really scary video!

    That said, I think most boat winch straps and tie-down straps are a lot weaker than their original rating. Exposure to sunlight destroys the thread that holds the...

    Perhaps you're right. They don't give an overheat indication until you slow down, then the pisser stops flowing.

    I try hard to avoid large accumulations of grass when possible, but sometimes...

    That looks REAL good! Looks like it was getting oil, which is the main thing. They're probably fouled to the point where it won't run good, but you can probably save them by cleaning with lacquer...

    Looking at post #4 again, that doesn't look very secure. Yes, those straps fasten to the metal fender bracket, but those things are easily bent. A lot of trailers have plastic fenders, too.

    Problem With Sea Grass

    I spent a couple of days at the beach, riding my Ultra LXs. Even though there was not a lot of sea grass floating in the water, I was collecting a lot of it in the jet pumps which was causing an...

    It needs to spin freely, and you may need to adjust it up or down a little bit. Keep in mind that, being one one side, it will read higher or lower when turning that it does while going straight.
