    single vs double trailer question

    The guys aRe right, the shorter the distance from the trailer axle to the pivot point (read hitch all here), the harder the trailer will be to back. That's the reason your horse trailer is easier to back. My trailer is a RoadMaster custom dual ski trailer. It is a total so 18' long, but it is...

    Good guys on here can help you out. I rebuilt my starter, 94 XP, last year. Had corrosion on the Bendix also. Can't find it right now but one of the threads I read said to check the Mag/Flywheel housings gasket and oring gasket if you got signs of water after you put in a new starter. My starter...

    HX Upgrade Recommendations

    Not experienced with that on PWC's, but have done it on lots a other motors-mostly when gas didn't cost so much. Raising the compression pretty much commits you to permanent high octane fuel if you want your motor to last. Especially true with 2-cycles. You can get away with more heat and the...

    2005 GTI oil light

    Thanks guys, that is good info. I will check it out and let you know. It sounds kinda like this float might be sorta like those old fibre floats that were in Quadrajet Carburetors-after a while they would just absorb gasoline until they would no longer float so they would just sink and not shut...
