    I don't keep mine permanently mounted, but when I run the Tach I just zip tie it to the GPS RAM mount on my glove box. Putting it up closer to the dash might be a better idea so you don't have to...

    The FX HO (MR-1) is extreamly reliable 3 seater and a very stable ski. Even a VX with the MR-1 could work.

    Yamaha does not recommend using anti freeze, per the service manual, and fogging oil is helping to protect internals.

    A blow off valve will help with clutch longevity. My recommendation is to enjoy the ski and if the clutch breaks you can swap it out for a newer model clutch which is a lot stronger.
