    You can't know how long anything will last. But based on my experience with a '14 RXT-260 with 200 hours and a '17 RXT-260 with 350 hours the engine was the only assembly I didn'​t have an issue...

    Good strategy-NEVER own a Sea-Doo that doesn't have a service contract (it's NOT a warranty). It's cheap enough to pay for coverage once the "boat show special" coverage expires. I added 4 years of...

    I just rebuilt the RFI engine in my '98 GTX and I sent the injectors out to get cleaned. They were very dirty. I wouldn't trust knock offs of a critical item like a fuel injector.

    Mopar-I'm just curious-if you built the '16 to your desires why do you want a '21 hull? Do you think the handling will be that much better?

    I'm surprised that the prices are this high for a single trailer. The suspension design is the most important variable, IMO. A torsion axle is far more effective than a leaf spring one. It is...

    You shouldn't-I've read your posts about the engines you've built and you recognize the fundamental shortcomings of this platform. It is too high strung for consumer duty.

    And this is how hulls should be tested-where the rider is at his physical and mental abilities to hold on. I test at this level to see if a ski will "kill me" in everyday use. My '99 GSX-L was one...

    This is an interesting modification and it looks like it was done professionally. Polaris installed a Jet Works water flow restricting valve on the Pro1200 from the factory to reduce the amount of...

    I LOVE riding in remote areas with lots of twisties! The water intake port that's located in the high pressure side of the pump has small holes to prevent ingestion of debris that is large enough to...

    Take it to a local fiberglass repair shop and have them give you an estimate. If the boat runs well it might be worth fixing.

    You've picked a good hull to buy. Like mentioned above, the 951 engine in the '99 is known to be less reliable than the 787. They do have noticeably more power but the carburetion is finicky and...

    I'm surprised to see vapor coming from my 15F while on the water, compared to my Sea-Doo. I'd say your exhaust looks normal but why did you replace the exhaust manifold gasket?

    It sounds like a bad idle air control motor to me. My '15 had the same symptoms but I know my mechanic had to make some other adjustments also.

    I am seriously thinking about having this design fit to my '17 RXT-260 when the BRP service contract expires in 2023. The challenge will be to find a shop to do the work.
