    Kawasaki vs Yamaha fzs

    I had a chance to ride and put serious hours on my Kawasaki and coming from other side of fence I would not own or ride a Yamaha again, the hull difference is no comparison the Kawasaki is a much better ski handling, open water riding, storage, gauge pod info screen, the reverse isn't gay..... Things I don't like about Kawasaki is fuel consumption and cavitation it has on holeshot other than that it's a pretty good machine would not do a Bimini trip on anything else!!!!

    Kawasaki did not go cheap on there product like Yamaha and others have its worth the extra money for Kawasaki as you get a ton more ski for that extra money

    Your gonna get a ton of opinions regarding the subject of yamaha vs. Kawi, i happen to agree with you considering we own both.

    My wife and i would love to do a bimini run some day, and i kinda wish i had 2 yamahas to do it with. I guess my concern is premium fuel, is it available out there ?

    I don't advise it but I have ran regular fuel in it before and as long as you stay out of boost and just cruise 35 or so it works.....

    You could always bring a couple of bottles of octane booster too.

    Two questions, what year FZR did you ride?

    What octane fuel is available in Bimini?
