    Try a new IAC valve... the black thing at the top of the throttle body. They seem to go bad frequently.

    That's not the part I thought you were talking about. I thought you meant the thru-hull that's between that part and the opening in the hull.

    That part usually leaks between the seal and the...

    A trailer with too little tongue weight will weave back-and-forth at high speeds, even if you don't make a quick lane change. Also, the tongue will bounce around on the ball and drown out your...

    The water coming from the pisser comes from the exhaust header pipe after going thru the block. It's usually hot when the engine is hot. As long as it's a good flow, you should be OK. If you have...

    That's not the back seat!

    One more pointer to glean from the pic: get the right ball mount... trailer should be towed level.

    Not familiar with that setup. But if it's the same as the DI, fix it before riding. The pump pressure can cause the thru-hull to pop right off. And I speak from experience... sinking is not fun.

    BTW - I wouldn't place the tie-down strap over the seat. The strap should be over a solid part of the hull or through the tow hooks. And without a bow roller, there should be one strap on the back...

    You can move the ski forward on the trailer, but then you will increase the tongue weight. Excessive tongue weight can be a problem when towing or moving the trailer. Also, the best placement for...

    I've used the rope trick on Kawasaki 4-stroke motors without a problem. Think about it... when the piston is at the top of the stroke, all valves are seated, so it shouldn't bend any valves.

    BTW...

    I'm sure it does... on the trailer! Unless he's towing with the Yugo.

    Slower speed with bursts of power might also be caused by bad spark plug wires. The ends of the wires get frayed and when you pull the boots, some strands of wire will fall out. Remove the boots,...

    I agree with Steve. Radial tires are the way to go. Alternately, go with wide tires.

    And pack a spare tire, a jack, some tools and one or two spare hubs with greased bearings. In the event of a...
