    ...hadn’t even heard of that. It tests the integrity of all the seals in each cylinder. Cylinder 2 failed and they thought it might be leaking into #1, but then #1 should be showing some leakage and did not. They decided it had to be a valve issue. The Service Manager told them to cut open the...

    In the market for a ski, new vs. used, SeaDoo vs. Yamaha, etc. etc. EDIT-Found it!!!

    ...a brand new SeaDoo RXT out of the crate for $8190 (sticker was like $12k!). We had a lot of fun with it for one season and then along came baby #1, it got a little use after that but then it stayed stored in my garage for a couple of years as babies #2 and 3 came along and we bought the boat...

    Considering adding a 2nd battery to my SX-230 HO

    ...you say it was an add-on? I can go over later today to see if it is a two position switch (on/off) or 3 position which I assume would be battery #1, battery #2, and off. I understand the current draw and amperage drop from the large wire run if I separate the batteries. After reading your...

    Impeler Shaft Play / Intermediate Bering Condition Verification

    Sure. For #1, when I look at your picture, it looks like you are missing gelcoat on the port and starboard sides of the intake--right there where the hull meets the metal. Not sure why--I don't think I have seen anything like that before. It may be an optical illusion (photography trick?)...

    Impeler Shaft Play / Intermediate Bering Condition Verification

    Truly appreciate your input. Would you mind elaborating a bit more one #1, re-silicone the intake? The impeller does look decent but one can feel that the edges have been wearing some against the housing. The edges do have some bur. Got a ballpark price from local Yamaha store of $600 to rebuild...

    Onboard battery charger question. 2018 242x e-series.

    For question #1, it is whatever the dealer wants to give you. There is nothing set in stone.

    Florida houses with metal roofs

    Rule #1, warranties protect the manufacturer....not the building owner. Lot's of fine print and hoops to jump through to get warranty coverage. Statistically most roofs are replaced by storm damage, aka "acts of God", before the warranty ever kicks in.

    Let's talk WETSOUNDS

    Question I have is where do you want the sound? If it's all about blasting out the back, then go with set up #1, but you'll be lacking sound in the bow. I never did a sound bar and just replaced my cabin speakers with the wetsounds 650's and added an additional pair in the main cabin bringing...

    Really weird issue need help. Engines overheating randomly Yamaha/Dealer says it’s not happening

    On both of my engines, the worst place for the buildup has been in the cylinder block water jackets. The closer it is to cylinder #1, the worse it is. The cooling water intake for the water jackets is located on the opposite end at the bottom of cylinder #4. Regarding flushing: both motors...

    Possible new tow truck ( Tesla )

    ...are completely dead but it’s not going to get you very far. I think the delay with the Tesla truck has to do with a couple of things. #1, they can’t make enough batteries to fill global demand of their current lineup. #2 range while towing and a lack of options in the rural areas where...

    2015+ AR240 Wakeboard / Surfboard Tower Rack (A Beautiful Pair)

    I can’t tell. My invoice is posted in post #1, it says 1.5” and it is the exact fit for the rear leg of my tower. When I was shopping I could find less expensive alternatives but not in the exact size I needed, and only one source had the exact fit - that they would guarantee, if I remember...

    Couple Questions on 2017 AR190......

    ...but since it was so new I wasn't going to touch the engine and let them blame me for anything. Diagnoses came back "Found Intermittent miss on cylinder #1, Checked coil and found wire harness not properly locked into place". I thought it was pretty sloppy for either the factory or the dealer.
