    He put gas in the oil tank? Wow! Just wow!

    There probably isn't anything to diagnose. Your engine was starved of oil because the oil tank was full of gasoline instead of oil. More than likely...

    This should be good. It'll be nice to see some real world numbers comparing the three skis.

    Jose, as you can see from my signature I have a VXR and a VXS. I love both of those skis. Neither one of them has an aftermarket intake grate. They both have the stock, OEM Yamaha grates and I've...

    Roughness? The first thing to try is a new set of spark plugs. It seems like these modern Yamaha 4-stroke engines really want to have 100% perfect spark plugs. Many people have experienced total...

    Are you saying that your 2013 VXR is sluggish on the lower end? My 2012 VXS and 2013 VXR are not sluggish at all on the lower end.

    If your top speed is good, I doubt that you have anything stuck...

    Yes! That's something else that I noticed from your pictures. It's always a lot nicer to be in sand than mud.

    Here on Lake Conroe, we have one sandy beach area that I know of for boaters to use....

    My family and I took our 2004 Stingray 200LX I/O boat to the Trinity River three weekends ago. Smooth, smooth water. Lots of cruising at 45-55mph. The only concern was that there is the occasional...

    Wow! That water looks very calm on Lake Sam Rayburn. I'm going to guess that it can get pretty rough at times. Here on Lake Conroe, during the summer it's always rough. Too many wakeboard boats,...

    Bummer! That part isn't cheap. I tried looking on eBay to see if there were any used hoses. None of the used hoses were the same. Take a look to see if maybe you could make something work.

    I'm happy to hear that your ski is running properly on the trailer. The real test is going to be on the water this coming weekend. I'm wishing you good luck that the ski will run good.

    The recommendation is to always use genuine Mikuni carburetor kits.

    Well, that's great news for you, Fandini. I'm thinking that if it works in a 2018 GP1800 then it should work in a 2018 FX.

    Right after I posted, I saw that TimeBandit posted with a transducer location test method. My instructions also had that suggestion only they mentioned using a plastic bag. Like I said, I used...

    Did your transducer come with instructions describing a "test fitting?" I installed a new HawkEye brand depth gauge and transducer into my boat early this summer. My instructions gave several...

    You are correct. A through-hull transducer will not work if there is an air space, foam space, insulation space; anything that isn't solid.

    Do you already own the gauge and transducer?

    I think that's the key right there. The nozzle should turn the same amount in both directions. Like Adam said, take a few things apart to isolate the problem and hopefully you'll zero in on what's...

    Do what Oleg said. If you don't have a compression gauge you can rent one for free from your local Autozone/Advance Auto Parts/O'Reilly. Might as well check both engine's compression. There is a...

    Just to confirm; you did see three strong streams (two smaller and one larger) of carburetor cleaner shooting into the barrel of each of the carbs?

    So I just read your post again and you said that you used aftermarket carb rebuild kits. Bummer. They're not helping you.

    Years ago, I bought a large container (1 quart, I think. Maybe it was a pint?) of the dark, greenish-blue StaBil for ethanol gas. My 2-stroke skis weren't impressed and I quit trusting that stuff. ...
