    Cathodic protection is always a good idea! Yamaha does it, don't know why Kawasaki won't.

    You learn quickly! Consider a dry suit with insulation. You can re-route the pisser hose so it sprays on your feet.

    Welcome aboard, Tyler!

    Looks like we have a future engineer in our midst! I love it!

    Old gas will definitely cause problems. Chemical additives won't fix it. I think about the only time...

    Welcome, Jboss!

    Kawasaki names are very confusing. There is an Ultra LX, which is NOT supercharged; and there is an Ultra 310LX, which IS supercharged.

    The normally aspirated 'Ski is a great...

    For your use, you might consider the Kawasaki Ultra LX. Normally aspirated, smooth riding, very stable. You can turn almost anybody loose on it and they'll have fun.

    While you're working on it, be sure to inspect the oil lines. They are well known for falling off and burning up engines! You do not want the oil lines 'secured' with tie-wraps. You want...

    sirbreaksalot is the resident expert on these things, but he hasn't weighed in yet.

    I would think that after 7 years, it might be time to replace the supercharger belt. It is important to grease...

    That would be a 300X in 2013. Should be within your budget, including TTL.

    I bet the tongue weight is very high when you get it loaded up. Can the axles be moved?

    I've been through hell with that electrical electrical system on an 1100 STX. I found intermittent contacts on the orange switch, it would only turn on about half the time. I found intermittent...

    I thought the 2-strokes were banned from many parks years ago. Not so?

    A complete, running 2013 Ultra LX is worth about $5500 in good condition in your area.

    The same 'Ski without an engine is probably worth very little. I would think the engine, electronic, jet...

    I bet you can find a 300 in that range. Where are you located?

    Yes, check your compression numbers with a different gauge. If still low, look into the cylinders with an inspection camera to see if there is scoring, or pull the head. If you do end up replacing...

    Welcome aboard, Adam!

    I've never owned, nor even ridden a 250X before, but I know people that have. I don't know anybody that would recommend buying one. You can do all the repairs and mods to...

    I've got a 2010 and a 2013. To the best of my knowledge, the new style will fit just fine. I've had both pumps apart, but I didn't compare one with the other.

    I finally got a chance to go look at my LX. It only has one screw on the bracket, even though there are 3 holes in it. It is also glued down pretty good with silicone adhesive. I don't think you...

    Yamaha doesn't manufacture their oil, they buy it from someone else that private labels it for them.

    I can't remember an engine failure that was attributable to an 'oil failure' since they came...

    I have 2 '99 Ultra 150s. One requires the expensive plugs, one doesn't. However, the flame arrestor label on both says that they require the expensive plugs. The determining factor is the igniter...

    HIN 41803 and below require the expensive plugs. Hey, at least they're cheaper than they were in 1999!

    OK, so it just holds the wire? Perhaps one screw is enough. I'll have to look at mine.

    FYI, there are usually some parts that are not shown in the parts diagrams. I had an 1100 that was missing...

    I looked at the parts diagram, Meters section, and is shows (4) 92009-3703 screws.

    Oh, yea, glad to hear that you're working from home... :)

    Yes, Curtis is the guy. I met him during a trip to Galveston a couple of years ago. He was able to provide me with a part that wasn't shown on the Kawasaki parts diagram.

    Glad to hear that...
