    Wow, what a mess. What I would do is get a hold of the KAW Rep personally and meet him at your local riding spot (ASAP). Let him/her ride the Skis and go from there. . . .

    At this point in...

    Congrats on the new Skis Chris288! That both Skis had similar symptoms, I say fuel is the issue. What brand fuel did you put in the Skis?

    If in fact there were some hoses off or something like...

    maybe he didnt tighten the oil filter correctly

    My bet is that one right there . . . I have seen many Posts about this; with this being the cause. Good news is your engine is likely OK. JB

    If there was that much rust, you better replace the Belt too. The "rust" will help saw its way through Belt. You have a lot of work and TLC ahead of you! JB

    I will offer my 2 Cents on this Post.

    Over many many years I have owned all kinds of YAMs, KAWs, and Sea Doos, and I have never had any issues with a WARR Claim for any one of these PWC's that had...

    My comment was really geared towards "cheap insurance". Two Stroke Oil is relatively cheap so why put some in the gas tank too. It completely removes the chance of a ruined engine if one of those...

    Don't worry about a little air bubble. What you need to worry about is the dinky little clamps holding the Oil Lines on. Eventually, those oil lines become more brittle over time; and one (or more)...

    A Super Charged version of the 15F wouldn't surprise me. But I don't think they would drop the "as is" 310 engine into the 15F Hull . . . rather a tamer version of the 310 engine.

    They have done...

    Yep, get a bright flashlight and look into the Pump area. You are likely to find some debris caught on the impeller / Pump housing area. Get a long stick or modified coat hanger and fish that...

    Seems like a non value added item to me. And if done incorrectly, you could severely restrict water flow which is needed for safe operation of the engine!

    Why do you feel the need to do this? ...

    Yep, that's about right. I think this Ski could really use some type of "boarding step" on the stern. The Ski is very buoyant . . . deep water boarding is a PITA! But if you are willing to go...

    Double Tap, the basic post ride care between the 15F and the 300/310 really is essentially the same. Except for a 3 second squirt of fogging oil every other third ride I have treated both my 15Fs...

    30 yrs old . . . you're a young man; you would get the hang of the SXR 1500 pretty quick. Years ago I had the SXR 800. SXR 800 and SXR 1500 are very very different Skis all the way around. ...

    Of the line, the SXR 1500 is insanely quick. Stock for Stock, it will devour a 310 off the line. But the 310 will eventually catch up and pass it.

    Ya, those Pics sure look like a "melt" and not a "crack" to me.

    You seem to up on matters Kate. And from that I think you have already answered your own question! You can probably get a smokin' deal right now on a new non current Ultra.

    Well, there is still a "randomness" to this issue that is not completely understood (at least not by me). Not every 310 has a piston issue. So that leads you to "what are all the variables that can...

    Ugh! Not that it makes a difference Double Tap, but I am curious. Of those 30 hours, how hard has the Ski been ridden? Are you WOT most of the time? Cruising? JB

    Do you recall what kind of MPG were you getting at the Mark Hahn? JB

    Water Dr,

    I own 3 of them and am perfectly content. Yes, they are lacking some of the latest "gizmos" but frankly I don't need that gizmo crap anyway. JB

    He was given some good advice to NOT do this. But he chose the path of "most resistance". I hope it all works out OK. JB
