    SBT (cloned MR1) engines are very weak. I went through 3 in a row over a 6 month span, all failed for different reasons. Warranty works like a curse. I simply got tired of engine-swapping !!! Sure,...

    Aside from moving the engine forward to get it out, the midshaft is pressed out of the bearing housing. But before one can press, you remove the coupler flange - which requires a mid-shaft spline...

    No need to over-complicate it with extra valves & disconnects. . . assuming this is Yamaha, there's already a disconnect - just reach in & 1/4 turn the flush port.

    Can you see the water inside, or could it be in the connector(s) area?

    The best way is to re-flood it (yes you read that correctly) with isopropyl 91%, as this grabs the moisture trapped. Then...

    Never heard of that myself, yet I can logically see that being plausible, as the dash is just a node on the K-line (Yamaha data network - think ODBC II in vehicles). So the water might be taking-down...

    I can't fix your conundrum, only to highlight added points:

    Radials will offer more towing stability (aka side-to-side), so that would be a welcome advantage for the heavier dual trailer.

    Not being a grammar-cop but "ventilating" is probably more technically accurate. The pump sounds to be air-bound, and if you think of it in terms of a water-pump, it is simply un-primed for a sec or...

    So is that a new or used thumb-rule ?? Because most plugs employ a one-time crush-washer (gasket) which takes more turns initially.

    Color-rite is decent quality paint. Used them (although expensive) on a few motorcycle projects myself, and the paint held-up fine against OEM. Don’t own the bikes anymore.

    While I don't have the exact same waverunner you have (with RiDE), knowing Yamaha's in-general, the answer is "no". Relays should all de-energize (cool down).

    Under load, there will be more pressure in the exhaust, so its not a stretch to consider more oxygen displacement. I'd wait for the test ride. Hopefully that is it. If not, at least one thing is...
