    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...

    I bet you can find a 300 in that range. Where are you located?

    Yes, check your compression numbers with a different gauge. If still low, look into the cylinders with an inspection camera to see if there is scoring, or pull the head. If you do end up replacing...

    Welcome aboard, Adam!

    I've never owned, nor even ridden a 250X before, but I know people that have. I don't know anybody that would recommend buying one. You can do all the repairs and mods to...

    I've got a 2010 and a 2013. To the best of my knowledge, the new style will fit just fine. I've had both pumps apart, but I didn't compare one with the other.

    I finally got a chance to go look at my LX. It only has one screw on the bracket, even though there are 3 holes in it. It is also glued down pretty good with silicone adhesive. I don't think you...

    Yamaha doesn't manufacture their oil, they buy it from someone else that private labels it for them.

    I can't remember an engine failure that was attributable to an 'oil failure' since they came...

    I have 2 '99 Ultra 150s. One requires the expensive plugs, one doesn't. However, the flame arrestor label on both says that they require the expensive plugs. The determining factor is the igniter...

    HIN 41803 and below require the expensive plugs. Hey, at least they're cheaper than they were in 1999!

    OK, so it just holds the wire? Perhaps one screw is enough. I'll have to look at mine.

    FYI, there are usually some parts that are not shown in the parts diagrams. I had an 1100 that was missing...

    I looked at the parts diagram, Meters section, and is shows (4) 92009-3703 screws.

    Oh, yea, glad to hear that you're working from home... :)

    Yes, Curtis is the guy. I met him during a trip to Galveston a couple of years ago. He was able to provide me with a part that wasn't shown on the Kawasaki parts diagram.

    Glad to hear that...

    Very good demonstration! That Weigh Safe Hitch is an interesting idea, and about the same price as my B&W hitch.

    With 800 hours, it would have to be cheap. HOWEVER, I've spent a bunch of money fixing up low time 'Skis. Letting them just sit and rot really isn't any better.

    On many of the Yamahas the oil injection simply dribbled oil into the flame arrestor. If you ever watch the system operating, it doesn't 'squirt' oil. The flow rate is so slow that you can barely...

    I can only recommend that you install the 25031-3754. However, it would depend on your budget, etc. If you buy the 25031-0430 and it doesn't work, you can always re-sell it.

    You're right, the nozzles are not stock. I think the long one is supposed to give you a little more top end, but makes steering rather heavy. Don't know anything about the other one.

    Most likely it was a rental. If so, it was serviced regularly but the hull may be dinged up. Inspect it carefully. Aftermarket seat covers are big sellers, so it may not be original.

    If there is no scoring or other damage to the cylinder, you may not need to bore it.

    From the pictures, I don't see anything to worry about. However, the critical area is the needle valve, jets, etc.
