    I would just buy a different brand of mixer, like CRC, that is much cheaper than a Salt-Away branded one. I just bought a Salt-Away mixer and it leaks no matter how tight I screw the bowl on. At a...

    Why does this aftermarket I/C come with an anode then?

    For cost of repairs call a local dealer. The pump will start howling long before it locks up and the design of it will prevent the impeller from driving forward and damaging the crankshaft (like...

    This is a broad generalization-if a ski (of any brand) is properly cleaned after use in salt water it will provide a satisfactory service life. If you can get a newer 15F with a trailer for $5K in...

    If the speedometer reads around 65 you're fine but the pump may be in bad condition. A pump failure is usually caused by water intrusion which corrodes the bearings. In salt water use the wear ring...

    I would NEVER use gasoline to clean something. It's a good way to blow something up, or worse, burn yourself.

    I have that exact model and it is used exclusively in salt water. I bought it new in '16 and it has about 190 HR and I'm very happy with it. I flush with Salt Away but that isn't necessary. A weak...

    This is the the component people have used to reinforce their tunnels.

    Why don't you call the dealer and ask? This procedure is very lengthy and requires some special tools.

    Kevin-I LOVE doing tours like this! We used to cruise the Minnesota river after it flooded and were able to drive through the forests. How do the ergonomics of the STX 160 compare to the STX 15F? ...

    Again, this is not news to people who have owned Yamahas with the NanoXcel hull. It was such a problem on the FZ hull that a forum member made a reinforcement piece for the tunnel. I had one...

    I run my skis in the Gulf of Mexico out of Fort Myers and I don't notice that much moisture but I think the key is to remove ALL salt water after EVERY ride. I only apply a rust inhibitor to the...

    RBoston I hear your rant and feel your pain. At least you recognize that the dealer is doing something wrong. Dealing with poor service for our machines is just a fact of life and it will always be...

    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...

    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.
