    first ride 310r,,,,,,,,, WOW !

    Having had ultra 150s a 250x, and a 300x, kawasaki NAILED it with the 310, all i can say is WOW, what a completely different animal, feels 100 lbs lighter, more playful than our fzs, narrower, and smalller overall. Bravo kawi, great job improving an already potent beast ! Outstanding handling, nimble, lighter, playful, faster, awesome bars, awesome maneuverability, an absolute joy to ride in all conditions. Only 1 gripe, cramped saddle position for bigger guys, humped seat hurts my back, will get hump removed at upholstery shop.

    Nice! Did you get the 2014 or 2015 model? One thought about the seat: You may be able to find someone who will want to switch seats with you (from Ultra 310x owner). I am 99.99% sure that the two seats are interchangeable on the R and X model. There are some who will like the R seat better than the X seat. JB

    The seats are interchangeable, no problem.

    I don't agree that the 310X is more "playful" in terms of handling and nimbleness. My 2015 FZS in stock form makes an ass out of the Kawasaki when it comes to handling, turning, etc. My 2015 310X is a tank in the water in comparison, not turning nearly as aggressive. However, in choppy water, the 310X is a far better ride, better features, and average top speed is faster. When the water gets rough, the FZS gets left in wake.

    Thats the wonderful thing about living in a free society, we can all voice our opinions... Not having owned a 300x, u wouldnt know what i was talking about. Been riding these things for 18 years, the 310r is leaps and bounds better than our 2009 fzs period.

    I was comparing a 2015 FZ to a 2015 310X. Sorry, never rode a 2009 FZ, so I could not tell you how much less of a ski it is compared to the 2015 FZ.

    I've also never rode a 300X to know what differences are between it and the 310X. I've written a complete comparison thread of 15 vs. 15 though. Owning both, I know a lot about them.

    I know where your coming from, we have an 09 fzs, I was comparing it to an 09. the 310R is the culmination of a great line of skis from 2007 with the 250. 300 and now the 310.. each iteration has only gotten better and better, i am amazed by the 310R...

    So what makes it so much better than the 300x? I know all the mechanical differences, but does it really feel that much different than a 300x on the water?
