    Ok I just did a compression check (engine warmed up, then all spark plugs removed). Was happy to see 170 psi on all 4. Also while warming it up on the hose I revved it quite a few times didn't see...

    2011 300 Ultra LX Burning Oil

    Background:
    This is the ski that went down in Sep '18 with the burned piston/head etc. It took me a year, but I completely rebuilt it/put it back in water last October. It's been running super...

    Soooooooo I'm riding that bad boy today, now has a little over 10 hours on it, still running strong. Made a couple hard turns near some other boat traffic/got a whiff of oil smoke (thought it was one...

    I used a regular car motor stand, but had to drill one of the 4 mounts to get the holes to line up. Also stuck a 2x4 under opposite end to take some of the weight off the mounting end. It's a little...

    I'd take them up on it for sure, although $550 per year is pretty steep.

    There are two electronic gizmos that tell the throttle how much gas/air to let in. There is the "Lever-assy-throttle" which is forward left side of engine compartment just above the air box. This is...

    I have to agree with Steve on the ZXis. Those were way more fun to ride than my 300 Ultra LXs as far as turning goes. The ZXis lean way over in the turn like a motorcycle, whereas the 300s turn much...

    Pretty much same story on one of mine except I rebuilt the engine myself (took a year). It runs great now but I'm leery of running wide open for extended periods of time. I'll open it up, hit top end...

    Is there even such a thing as a bullet-proof cover? I have to replace mine about every two years. The sun just beats down on em and eventually the canvas is like paper thin, tears, and they're done.

    I'll second the motion about salt environment. I had two '96 ZXIs that were only used in fresh water and never touched the pumps in 8 years. The two Ultra 300LXs are both below 100 hrs and I've had...

    Not sure I agree with SBAL, I flush the hell out of my skis (all salt, sitting above salt on lifts), engine 3-5 minutes on hose, IC 5+minutes (plus 10 seconds fogging SC). I've done this after every...

    Btw, if you happen to want to peek into the gas tank (for debris or whatever) don't let the end of the scope (camera) touch the fuel. Ask me how I know lol.

    Just in case anyone is wondering whatever happened to this engine/rebuild, thanks to Steve at Kawi Performance, this ski is back in the water/working great so far, (about 30 mins going easy ish from...

    Fouled plugs will cause symptoms like that. You can low rpm yourself back to dock, but if you try to get on it, it'll bang out and or die.

    I could send you mine, it's mangled with holes in it. You have a way to do an autopsy on them? It would be nice to know for preventative reasons.

    I was in a similar situation late last year after melting a piston/ruining the head. I sent the bad head up to Kawi Performance in NY. They salvaged the good valves etc and put them in a new blank...

    Update: The plugs above were definitely fouled out. The only thing I can figure for the cause is the fact that due to my location there is a ten minute idle power/manatee zone I have to traverse to...

    Stabil makes fogging oil, Autozone, Advanced carry it. BTW, dealer did show you where the port is right? My dealer didn't tell me squat, was lucky I read up on the manual from the beginning. Dealer...

    Definitely want to make sure the supercharger is good/hasn't frozen up. No water in the oil, a compression check, etc. I don't think I'd buy a used ski unless I rode it first.

    I had a similar scary incident back when I had my 900 ZXIs. Somebody's kid wanted to drive one but he was too young, so I put him in front of me/showed him the throttle, how to steer etc. I never let...

    Speaking of gauges; is there any way to get a warning BEFORE you melt a piston, like a cylinder head temp gauge maybe?

    Thanks Sirbreaksalot. So I'm guessing it gets the map from the boost sensor that sticks down into the intake manifold? I guess that would also compensate for odd situations like running the ski on a...
