    Its amazing these companies stay in business. Don't feel bad, even after Yamaha new of the chain issue they continued with the same design until 2016!! I like the idea of finding an old VXR and...

    stainless will gall horribly and you will replace the housing. Use threadsealant. It will protect the threads from the saltwater.

    "I think it is way to much water. I agree with you. With the gen 2 riva grate it did this at 70. I posted a video in the thread also.. The worx is...

    All the engine sensors, PCM operate on FIVE volts not 12 volts. You never get your engine started if they need 12 volts since when you crank voltage drops. If you battery starts the ski its strong...

    You have been told. Change your spark plugs before anything else. It not your battery, its not your gas. Remember when you shut off your engine some exhaust valves are open, open to your exhaust...

    I disagree. You will sacrifice something with aftermarket. Why would an OEM give up free "power, speed, drivability" they design the optimum part for the task at hand. I never used an...

    By all means go aftermarket. Obviously the Yamaha engineers are not competent enough to size the correct impeller. All these aftermarket companies have the same R&D resources as the OEM (LMAO) It...

    Went out yesterday and drove my buddies 2014 VXR back to back with my 2016FXHO. No comparison, the VXR was loud, alot of vibration, just felt very "base". I drag raced 6 times. Both ski topped at...

    55 years old. The FXHO is boring, wonderful cruiser, the 1.8 liter has great reliability. I had 2014 FZR (unloaded due to timing chain concern), 2012 VXR pretty quick, but back breaking ride. ...

    Well said, you dont have to pin the throttle but you can if you want. Getting to 70 mph is as fun as driving at 70 mph. My FXHO went 95 miles the other day and it only took 13 gallons, my VXR did...

    I got a 2016 FXHO with 23 hours on it for $8500 about 5 months ago. Now have 40 hrs and looking for SVHO. Just needs some more power even though it hits 63mph with low fuel and superman position. ...

    i keep the 2015 fx SVHO. I think you are going backwards with just the HO's. The 15 FXSVHO will also ride better than the 21 VX cruiser.

    thanks gsxr1300 looks like its characteristic. As far as speed my dash will hit 67mph sometimes. I was thrilled. In a sobering moment I turned on my Iphone and used it and was maxing out 62-63mph...

    I have never seen or owned a waverunner that didn't get a couple ounces of water in it every ride. My guess it is coming in the seal around the front hatch. The trailer idea doesn't sound bad to...

    Its a waverunner not show car. Do nothing and enjoy the ski. To repair correctly they would have to sand down, fill, and paint entire section.

    so easy to solve. get some liquid rollers or silocone spray and lube your bunk boards. The PWC will literally fly off the trailer with one push. make sure you bow strap and rear straps are tight. ...

    you are exactly right. $16k is new price of new I thought they were $20K new. WTF is wrong with me. Summer winding down anyways. Wait until Fall/Winter when inventories return and buy new.

    So I paid $8500 for a 2016 FXHO with 23 hours. I found a 2018 FXSVHO with 32 hours for $16K. So the difference is $7500 on that one for supercharged. I offered $14500 but haven't heard back. So...

    I have a FXHO love the ski but was looking for more power. I noticed the FXSVHO is still a bit slower than the supercharged GP1800. Is it worth it going to a FXSVHO, will the hit in power be worth...
