    Dirt collects in the fuel rails. Also the fuel rail O-rings and the O-rings under the needle valve seats fail. They are all the same size. Don't forget to check the pop-off pressure of the oil...

    Coronavirus

    Frankly, I'm getting awfully tired of all the attention being paid to this latest malady. Oh, yes, it can definitely be serious for a few of those that get it, but we lose tens of thousands each...

    Some people put gear oil in the cone to act as an indicator of a leak. If oil leaks out, water may be getting in.

    The manual calls for inspecting/replacing the exhaust filter every 50 hours.

    The belt tensioner requires periodic inspection/lubrication. (Once per season? Don't remember).

    There is a flush...

    Update: I picked up a wrecked Ultra LX over the weekend (the one mentioned in another thread here). I've started parting it out and I want the jet pump & new style ride plate/speedo for my 2010...

    From what I've heard, dealer markups really aren't that much, 15-20%. I tend to buy at the end of the season when they just want to dump them and Kawasaki helps out with factory incentives. Of...

    Kawasaki had a lot of quality control problems with the oil pump cables. I got one that came new in the package with loose strands, cut myself trying to put it on. I got a replacement that was OK. ...

    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.

    Think you've got it bad? Here are some pics I shamelessly stole from the...

    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.

    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...

    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...
