    If you ever open the seat to find the hull full of water, open the drain holes in the back of the ski then run like hull. The water will drain pretty quickly out the drain holds. Pretty...

    It should be pretty water tight. Not only the rubber plugs around the wires, but there is an o-ring that seals the mating surface.

    This has happened to me on more than one 12F/15F; the stock...

    It's not that uncommon the 12F/15Fs to hear a tick. I would not worry about it, but at some point you should probably do a valve adjustment. Not all that hard, but a little trickier with the motor in...

    Do you have YDS to check which code? (Can't remember how to get the code on the dash--spoiled by YDS.)

    I highly recommend these folks for injector service. Costs me about $100 including shipping both ways for four injectors. Cheap price to pay to know you are at peak injector performance.

    (1) As others have pointed out, the pipe joint is notorious for leaking on the pre-2010 VXs. Yamaha did not use enough glue...

    I have fixed several of these, the most recent two weeks ago. A trick that WFO taught me. This happens if the ski sits for a long period of time with water in the waterbox. Exhaust valve(s) can...

    When you aligned the motor, did you leave out the rubber donut on the PTO? You can't really get proper shimming with the donut in place.
