    Yes I think you would need a full new engine management system to do it properly, Haltech etc. Not a small job.

    But I don't think that is right about E85 sitting for a long time, in fact my...

    Ok that makes sense. Over here we just have the one brand (United) doing E85, and I don't have anything personally that runs it so can't say what the state of play at the moment is. I do think...

    Interesting, I would have thought the difference in those two blends would have been more than enough to show up when pushing boost / ignition timing to knock thresholds. I am lucky that I live in a...

    Brilliant. I could do with some of those myself. I like how they go over the top like that, as my ski keeps snagging underneath the barnacle infested pontoon at my local marina, and has already put...

    I have to say I disagree with this. At least with the full version of it. As long as you can set up shop at each new solar system, each generation will indeed reach its destination. It is still a...

    And if you pull a plug and do have water in the cylinders, just extract it with the oil extractor you use for servicing. Works well! 8-[

    You lucky son of a bitch hahaha. Well, I say that as I sit here in a tropical paradise wondering which exotic island I will visit next. Still, no rocket launches around here, at least until world...

    This is a subject I absolutely love.
    Ok yes and no... There are other places in our solar system of great importance for humans to visit, utilise, and perhaps colonise. The ice moons of all 4 gas...

    How is the catch can currently hooked up? Follow all the hoses associated with it and see how the compare to the service manual.

    Questions to ask yourself are:

    Is the crankcase being...

    I also would love to catch a launch from out on the water. Much better than dealing with the crowds and traffic etc viewing from land.

    If Starship works out as planned it will change the space...

    Fair enough regarding the ECU send off, that isn't without it's dramas. But as for the warranty thing I don't think the flash affects that, certainly not at Brisbane Kawasaki anyway.

    I think if you are looking at this, it is well worth paying the extra to get the full ECU flash.

    Almost certainly yes, they will be. In fact I don't think they have changed anything mechanically, and besides, that speed restriction is what keeps all 3 major brands (somewhat) off the authority's...

    Another likely lost sale due to the Kawasaki CEO and corporate team still not addressing this significant issue that they definitely must know all about.

    If you can test ride an Ultra 310 and it...

    Unless you are going with alcohol fuel, in your shoes and going for power I would stick with 8.5 and put as much boost in as it will take reliably (generally somewhere around 20 PSI for 93 octane). ...

    Yeah with cars I don't think anyone runs above 9:1.

    But one thing to be careful with is the consistency. They can mix anything from 15% to 30% fossil gas into the ethanol and still call it E85...

    Welcome (back) to here.

    I can't help much with the 250s, but I can say that you have the right hull for your use case. I am up in the Whitsundays and my usage is similar - off shore island...

    I personally am a fan of doing a very early oil change after engine break in regardless of manufacturer recommendations, and then in fact another not long after that.

    That is so much better than mine.

    Really shows the price you pay for a deep hull in the ultra. Even if I also cruised at 40mph, I don't think it would use much less fuel at all than at 50. ...

    With less supply and more demand than ever, the incentives to make real performance changes just don't seem to be present unfortunately. If Yamaha or Seadoo had come out with a 320 hp ski, maybe the...

    Well that really seems to confirm it is a great build. Did you have to refuel at any point? If I ride mine in eco mode at around 50mph I will hit the fuel light from an overfilled tank before 60...

    I'm with Steve on this one, the Ultra hull is the go to for riding in chop or ocean swell. With more hull in the water it will take a little more power and fuel to push it, but that is the price you...

    I don't see the Mexico plant as good news really. Expanding the USA operations definitely is good news however.

    The only reason to go to Mexico is to save money on labour, and we all know it. ...

    Have to agree with Mike here. My 310 is the same Ultra hull of course, and if you want stability at rest so you can move around etc the Fishpro would have to be better, due to its flatter hull...

    In the Australian city of Brisbane in times of yore, F1-11s used to do flyovers of the city every year and do a dump and burn, reasonably low too. So the festival had the nickname Riverfire.
