    Also consider the moment a scratch (through the vinyl) were to occur below the water-line ... the water pressure from riding would simply get forced into said scratch, essentially "unwrapping" the...

    I think that comment right there is the core of the issue ... it's introspective.

    I remember that thread. Agreed, for those that want one of the ultimate in tenders, you'd be hard-pressed to find something better than a BatteryMinder.

    I agree with Steve45 as well. Plus, I'd not feel so safe having a 120v power cord inside or even on top of the craft. Try keeping things out of the hull, out from between the tarp/cover, out of the...

    I took a look at the online parts-fiche diagram "Ventilation" section 2018, and it appears there are just 2 flexible duct hoses that route to the lowest hull region open-air ended, so unless water...

    I'll give a "B+" for outside box thinking ... however, I think it goes without saying that the waterbox/water-lock component is much more than just a noise-suppression device... it's a big...

    scittb is correct. The 'play' is very likely coming from the height adjustment mechanism, and they get looser with time & use. Yes the 2009 & 2012 share the same general components, but being newer...

    That's great advice by Pete. The only other "Pro" I'd like to add is that the plastic wear ring comes slightly more thick, as I understand that is supposedly deliberate, as once installed, the...

    Yup - sounded like a software/firmware glitch with the way the dash averaged fuel sender signals, to me.

    Agreed, we need to know year and model, also any history, like is this a used craft you've recently acquired?

    FWIW, I have an older FX model service manual, and the OEM circuit paths indicates the...

    2020's are obviously included in the recall, yet limited - aka "certain 2020 FB1800 ... FC1800" FX models. Sounds like they might have found/fixed the issue mid-year to me.

    As for 2021 & up,...

    Yes, it is highly desired. It helps to protect the 2 aft-facing shaft seals from water-hammering abuse transmitted from the pump tunnel intake cavity.

    Okay, not a 2009 VX ... no worries. Disregard ALL of my above post as it does not apply to your craft. :facepalm:
    Well, all but the part about compression checks - that never hurts.

    Not sure if you've mistyped the year of the engine model, but TR1s (3-cyl 1050cc) came out in 2016. Therefore, if the year is correct, that craft will have a MR1 4-cyl.

    Best-case scenario, MR1s...
