    I have several trailers... some boat, ski, & utility, etc... my rule is based on tires - period - not the trailer sticker. Sorry, not all my trailers are new - can't trust the 'other' guy.

    Roger that - will consider.

    So I got a PM from someone else the other day (for an OEM), PM'd back. No reply yet.

    FWIW, I'm doing a ski conversion project, wondering if this part will work for...

    Thinking out loud again...
    how different is the SUV pump shoe compared to, say, a 2004-08 FX pump shoe ??
    If you follow where I'm going here ... if the FX HO pump shoe can be mounted onto the SUV,...

    Yes the stuck-open injector is a known fault behavior of the ECU. The way this works normally, is that injector has a constant 12v positive supply via the ignition-on circuit, and the ECU "pulses"...

    I'm in the middle of a SUV 1.8 conversion myself . . . not even close to being done currently.
    That said, I can already tell that the SUV ride plate is ... well ... short. I wonder if lengthening...

    Just thinking out loud .... we'd like to think most OEM manufacturers factor-in wide margins on their design-limits by default - meaning they account for owners pushing the engine a tad more. Some...

    Agreed.

    The thread's title says "Lithium Ion Battery" .... are we to assume the OP meant the fairly safe and stable LiFePO4 "lithium iron" technology. OR, are they truly referencing the more...

    Primary craft damage & failure was the Carbon seal failure. Exact failure of that seal is likely up for speculation, yet you do have the fact that the...

    Been there - did that. Decide to scrap the MR1 HO for an OEM 1.8L NA instead. This is just "my" opinion - and I'm nobody. The MR1 HO platform, I feel was pushed too-much by Yamaha engineers. They...

    So what trips most up on this concept, is understanding "electrical" Power. Without Power, nothing moves, nothing can get done. In the electrical world, Power is represented in some measurable...

    When comparing the two common types of shunt regulator designs (aka SCR -vs- MOSFET), both still do a good job at shunting Power by means of 100% current flowing (circulating) back into the next...

    As a bit of reassurance, I also feel that the broken spark plug miss-hap is not related to the current no-start situation.

    This current situation only make sense if BOTH the ski's security box is...

    Regarding the dealer's "dry" comment on leaving tenders plugged-in, I don't doubt that. But I think the issue has duality. Firstly, new PWCs are often sold with (cheapest) "vented" lead acid...

    I 2nd this as well - antifreeze traditionally replaces water in voids that potentially trap water, hence offer protect against expansion in freezing conditions. An OEM/stock Yamaha coolant system has...

    I can only guess the "desulfator" is a type of battery renew/recovery mode. I see it more common in chargers as opposed to maintainers. The mode uses temporary higher charging potentials (amps/volts)...
