    time to say good bye to my supercharged sea-doo's :(

    I work in insurance. It’s a neat coverage for people not at all mechanically inclined. The boat has to be under 10 years old to add it, and then can remain on until it’s 21 years old. I didn’t know about the seadoo thing though. I’ll have to call underwriting and ask. I’m sure they’re...

    time to say good bye to my supercharged sea-doo's :(

    That’s pretty cool. I’d probably just get the 60 and tune it instead of the 90. Like I said, if I get another ski, it’ll be a smaller spark/ex for inland stuff. I do too much two up riding on the Great Lakes for a spark everyday haha.

    Oh no way?! I thought you got trim but not the reverse bucket. That’s sweet then.

    time to say good bye to my supercharged sea-doo's :(

    Ive grown up a seadoo guy but but the bullet and got the vxr over the gtr this summer for reliability and overall costs to run. So far I’m not missing that 230hp over my 180hp. Adding ribbon delete, intake, and a simple exhaust mod this weekend. For under $400 I should have added some extra pep...

    Next Level Ski

    Agree for solo riding. But for me being 50/50 solo/2up, the RX is awesome. I hated not having reverse with my gsx. What a PITA when by the dock. My RX will still GPS 60.5mph. If you run two even somewhat regularly, I’d say it’s worth it over the smaller skis. Coming from the OP’s 787 GTX, I...

    Next Level Ski

    That’s a hard thing to do, buying an old ski that’s not going to be a problem. I did something bad this weekend.. I bought a yami.. 2016 VXR.. and I’m impressed with it. So much more torque than the RX. Doesn’t feel that much heavier/bigger. Funny, though, how the display doesn’t have temp...

    GTR 230 vs RXT 230

    I’ve done a ton of research over the past year on this. I actually had money down on a GTR. Went and saw it prepped. Honestly wasn’t that in love with it. I wish the GTR has some flake or something in the black. I hate to admit.. but given the bland paint, potential supercharger...

    Next Level Ski

    I’ve thoroughly thought about it! I know of a pair for sale. But the maintenance and longevity don’t sound fun haha. I tested the GTI the other day (they didn’t have a GTR ready).. not impressed. Now looking VXR.

    Carbed 951 RX. Absolutely love mine. Favorite two stroke I’ve ridden.

    Gtr230 Air intake

    I’ve got money down on one. I’ll be doing an intake and possibly an exhaust. I don’t see any intakes marked for the 230, just the 215. Might have to call riva.

    Winterizing

    Idk how you could legally use regular as idk how you’d catch it all as it flushed out. Same in the spring since you just put it in the water and if flushes the remainder out. Just use the RV safe stuff.

    GTR 230 vs RXT 230

    I just realized the GTR is 807lbs and the RXT 230 is only 805lbs. So my whole idea of the GTR 230 being the lightest/smallest performance craft isn’t so true anymore. They’re only about $1-2k apart at dealers, what would you get? The GTR 230 or RXT 230? basically the 230 GTI hull or 230 in the...

    Why going GTX vs GTR 230?

    Lithium batteries?

    X2. A motors vibrations are not what’s going to kill those batteries. I run them in all my street bikes. And like miki is saying, dirt bikes come factory with them. Just get a ballistic or other reputable battery if you want to try it. Theres no downsides other that cost and that they’re not...

    Lithium batteries?

    I use one in my superjet to offset the weight savings on the left side from the aftermarket exhaust. The savings is only like 5-10lbs. Man is it powerful though. I have a ballistic. You also never trickle charge lithium’s.

    Liability for Friends driving your Sea Doo

    i work in the insurance industry, i've seen tons of cases where a carrier pays out for something a guest/friend did. it's not necessarily the bulk of the lawsuit, but you can be found liable for allowing an unskilled/qualified person to operate your craft. even if they ARE skilled/qualified...

    Tips for Reversing a PWC Trailer

    Not really as far as backing up ones. Taller wheels with more sidewall will tow better and handle higher speeds better. I convert most of my small trailers to the 4.8 x 12 wheels if they come with smaller ones. Handles bumps better than the 8” wheels. But if you do go on sand then maybe the...

    Tips for Reversing a PWC Trailer

    The width of the trailer has less effect (if any) by its the length from hitch to tires that makes it very touchy. My single place trailers are the toughest trailers I’ve ever backed up, and I tow a triple axle enclosed trailer all winter to the UP of MI. Trailer tips: - go slow! Very slow. So...

    2018 GTX 230 Ltd or GTX 300 Ltd

    They 215 GTR was “optimized” for premium, but you can run regular and it’ll just retard the timing so you’re only makin like 180hp. The 230 though, was “optimized” for regular. No reason to run anything better.

    It that time again!:)

    Why did a 2012 GTR need a VTR motor? I’m looking at the GTR 230. Keep in mind the 230’s are supposedly maintenance free super chargers. New design. And 89 fuel is the normal fuel for it.
