    Apparently the road/tire/spring combination is causing a vibration at the natural frequency of the handlebars.

    Try a different tire pressure, or radial tires. If you can move the axle, try...

    Welcome aboard, surfbeat!

    What you see is what you get, no holes in the cover.

    The overheat sensor is a silver cylindrical part that has two hoses going to it. One goes to the pisser on the...

    OK, ha, ha, ha!

    I was just following Blake's advice.

    I couldn't find any reference to a thermostat, but Yamaha uses them on some of their 4-strokes.

    I don't know. I was never able to find any blockage. My guess would be something like a small stick that dried out, shrank, and came loose.

    I did blow gently back through the pisser (by mouth)...

    Took the 'Skis out on our lake today, they performed perfectly.

    Do these things have a thermostat?

    OK, I'm confused. What is a 'flat bottom Ultra 150'? And since 2005 was the last year for the 150, are you asking about the 250?

    The Kawasaki and Yamaha engines use outside water from the jet propulsion pump. Open loop.

    Some of the SeaDoos have a closed loop system with a heat exchanger on the bottom of the hull. These...

    Does the gas gauge work? If so, you don't need a Reserve setting or a selector valve. Plug the On outlet, hook the hose directly to the Reserve outlet. When the gauge gets low, put gas in it.

    I'd bet that the non-linear ranging is a holdover from the old style gauges that used a single float on a wire arm and a rheostat. That would give a sinusoidal response.

    I don't think machining would be much of a problem. The crankshaft is threaded. These engines turn CCW when viewed from the rear.

    Sounds like a fun project!

    I run 25:1 for break-in. If you're running oil injection, then you want to mix 50:1 in the tank, too.

    Running on the hose doesn't do anything for your break-in procedure.

    I would inspect the nipple carefully (I ALWAYS look carefully at nipples :lol:). See if it could be leaking where it goes into the casting, or if it has a crack or burr.

    Do you need a hull? I should have one available in a couple of months. I'm in Texas.

    Too nasty to ride on Saturday, as well. 25-30 knot winds, 3 foot waves, sea grass everywhere. Vacation is over, drove home today. I plan to take them to the lake next weekend and run them in fresh...

    Glad you found the problem! Do you have the right size hose? What brand of hose is it?

    I don't like worm gear clamps, use Oetiker clamps in that application.

    I'll have to give that a try, Blake. We did anchor the 'Skis yesterday and the tide went down, causing them to drag on the sand. I don't have an air compressor with me this week, so I'll see if I...

    It started working normally today after removing the reed valve in the exhaust, but started acting up this afternoon. Ran good, but when we got close to port and...

    You might be able to get it re-sleeved. The Kawasaki housings are not intended to be repaired (unlike some other brands), but there are people that do it. SBT does a lot of pump repair, so you...
