    That's interesting. I would certainly want to seal it up real good.

    I hate black 'Skis. They get too hot to touch (in Texas at least), they water spot terribly, and they're difficult to see out on the water. I spent a fortune replacing the black seats on my...

    Something I've done before on a tank that had a convoluted filler hose was to simply remove the filler hose from the tank and insert the siphon directly into the tank.

    I'm surprised that your dealer took parts off of another 'Ski they had in stock. Mine would never do that.

    Not really. With the Yamaha design, the engine gets oil even if the carb gets plugged up and runs lean. The inline valves are supposed to prevent oil from filling the engine during storage, but...

    Looks like it froze. The owner's manual recommends removing the lowest hose and draining it prior to winter storage.

    I was under the impression that there were nuts on the back side of the firewall. However, don't see any in the parts diagram. I guess there must be inserts that are imbedded in the fiberglass or...

    No more factory covers for me! Oh, they look nice and fit nice for a year or two, then they shrink, the material rots, and they're junk.

    25:1, 32:1, it's all good. For break-in, the more oil, the better. Of course, you run the risk of fouling plugs if you don't keep the RPMs up.

    Welcome aboard, Tin_Can!

    While you have it apart, I'd put a new starter motor in it. Those things are a pain to replace!

    I sent my set of prototype fittings to someone to test, but life got in the way and he was never able to test them. He sold his 'Ski and finally found the fittings and returned them to me.

    Try driving the screws into the holes with a hammer and punch.

    Penetrating oil and judicious use of a torch may help, too.

    Where are you importing it from? US 'Skis are made in Lincoln, Nebraska. Your dealer can probably get you proof of compliance.

    Keep in mind that, if you have to troubleshoot the injectors, they do NOT operate at 12 volts. Operating them for a period of time at 12 volts can burn them out. Check your service manual.
