    Oh, I've owned 3 Waverunners and still have my Yamaha boat! I find them to generally be ridiculously hard to work on, hence I own mostly Kawasaki.

    The best 'Ski is the one that runs!

    I would assume that you cleaned the internal filters, correct? New O-rings on the fuel rails and needle valve seats? Pop-off about 15 PSI? Chokes installed? Factory flame arrestor?

    I've owned both, and had both apart, but I honestly don't remember. Does the motor work, or at least try to work? I've had the magnets come loose in one motor. Bad brushes in another (4 brushes, 2...

    A friend of mine picked up a 2016 Yamaha FX Cruiser SVHO recently that only had about 10 hours on it. I rode it about 30 minutes last weekend.

    It really seemed to accelerate and handle a lot like...

    I think that for best results, you need to do it when it's warm. Stretch the material before stapling. I think mine was a little cool, allowing small wrinkles to form when it got hot.

    If you torqued the M8 bolts, I'd just guess on the M6 bolts. I wouldn't take it apart and re-do it.

    I wouldn't start the engine out of the 'Ski. It would be very loud, and it may move around a...

    I made a tool like the one that Kawasaki sells. I think it's easier to use than just putting the shaft in a vise, but that will work, too. I would use a vise that has smooth, hard jaws, and a big...

    Does the engine rev up and the 'Ski doesn't move, or does the engine bog down?

    You used a ShopVac to remove the junk from the tank? Those things create sparks! Fuel vapors and sparks don't mix well together!

    Find a real mechanic!

    The Ultra 150 should not be run on pre-mix because it has balance shaft bearings that require oil from the pump. Not so with the 750, 900, and 1100 engines. I prefer oil...
