    I was going to get spares made but didn't. I never use SLO mode, so I just keep the SLO key in my safe at home. If I lose the full power key while on the lake or if I take a 'Ski on vacation, I'm...

    Who said that? News to me, but I've only put them on about a dozen 'Skis, my Yamaha boat, etc. and run them hundreds of hours.

    The little ones that Kawasaki used to sell are junk and they will...

    Glad you caught it!

    Yes, I use the Groco WSB-500. I don't remember who has the best price for them now, I believe it was McMaster-Carr.

    Tygon is good stuff. They don't give you specs because they want you to by hose from them!

    I wouldn't use SBT parts on my lawnmower.

    Do you need the ECU, or are you just trying to get a matched set? There is a guy here that can program keys to an ECU without an original key. I can't...

    You may, indeed, have a little blockage in #2. Try blowing through the hose and check any sharp bends for debris. I don't remember which setup you have for the pissers, and I'm not going to go back...

    Glad you finally got it in the water!

    Water may come up over the rub rail a bit, but it's perfectly normal and doesn't hurt anything. (You should see an Ultra 150). Trim wouldn't make any...

    The 1500 engine uses two coils, each fires two cylinders. I can't tell you which ones each coil fires, as I don't have my book with me.

    Not all that hard, really. Remove the airbox, then remove the intake manifold. Leave the new hoses extra long to give yourself more hose to work with. Secure the hoses to the nipples on the...

    Welcome aboard, sticknrudder! (I'm guessing that you're an aviator).

    Odds are that the fuel system is contaminated with gunk. You'll need to look at everything from the tank, fuel pickups,...

    Could be. They are the same O-rings that are used under the needle valve seats.

    Elevation can make a difference, too. I normally boat at 2000', so speeds will be a bit slower. I take my LXs to the Gulf Coast every year, which is at sea level, but I almost never go over about...

    Check the little piece of hose between the pump and the metal tube on the fuel pump assembly. I've seen one (on a forklift) that was eaten up by ethanol.

    Keep in mind that today's ethanol fuel is absolute crap and that it absorbs water and corrodes carburetor components.

    If you winterized it by putting a bunch of StaBil in the fuel, running it...

    Welcome aboard, kawabungus!

    The Ultra LX is very weight sensitive. With a full tank of gas, mine will do about 46-47. The only time I see 50 is when the fuel level is pretty low.

    I think...

    Make sure you have ALL of the hardware removed.

    I've never heated one, but it may help soften the sealant. There should be lugs in various parts of the case to insert a screwdriver and pry the...

    Have you tried removing the spark plugs and turning the engine over by hand. I'd remove the valve cover and watch for any problems while doing this.

    If they do a decent job of repairing it, shouldn't be a problem. I can guarantee that they won't replace it, really no reason to.

    Welcome aboard, Robin!

    What makes you think the fuel pump is the problem? Most likely a carb problem.

    I had an old hull that I thought about putting a battery & motor in for our nieces & nephews, but when looking at the boating regs, it doesn't look like it would be legal for them to ride on it.
