    Not sure on your hull. I installed some on STX 1100s on the crossbrace between the front and rear seats. I used rubber cushioned clamps to hold it by the hoses.

    Has the jet pump been upgraded? That's the primary killer of these engines. The pump bearings let the shaft slide forward and put pressure on the crankshaft. This destroys the engine.

    I was going to get spares made but didn't. I never use SLO mode, so I just keep the SLO key in my safe at home. If I lose the full power key while on the lake or if I take a 'Ski on vacation, I'm...

    Who said that? News to me, but I've only put them on about a dozen 'Skis, my Yamaha boat, etc. and run them hundreds of hours.

    Glad you caught it!

    Yes, I use the Groco WSB-500. I don't remember who has the best price for them now, I believe it was McMaster-Carr.

    I wouldn't use SBT parts on my lawnmower.

    Do you need the ECU, or are you just trying to get a matched set? There is a guy here that can program keys to an ECU without an original key. I can't...

    You may, indeed, have a little blockage in #2. Try blowing through the hose and check any sharp bends for debris. I don't remember which setup you have for the pissers, and I'm not going to go back...

    Water may come up over the rub rail a bit, but it's perfectly normal and doesn't hurt anything. (You should see an Ultra 150). Trim wouldn't make any...

    The 1500 engine uses two coils, each fires two cylinders. I can't tell you which ones each coil fires, as I don't have my book with me.

    Not all that hard, really. Remove the airbox, then remove the intake manifold. Leave the new hoses extra long to give yourself more hose to work with. Secure the hoses to the nipples on the...

    The Ultra LX is very weight sensitive. With a full tank of gas, mine will do about 46-47. The only time I see 50 is when the fuel level is pretty low.
