    Re: Price for '17 GP 1800 (negotiated)

    Just thought I would follow-up on the value of the ski. While the performance is great, the reliability is not. As the ski sits at the non-delivery dealer at LKA for the second time this year, it is...

    Re: Any tips for dewinterizing?

    Agreed.
    When I purchased my ski it had old fuel and plugs and it ran poorly.

    So, looking into the ski from the port side (facing forward the left side), find the turbo. The intake is on the left side of the turbo. Remove the intake tube and feel inside. You should feel a...

    Re: Any tips for dewinterizing?

    For the F-12X's, fresh plugs and fuel are always a good thing. Also, make sure the turbo wheel is free moving following winter storage.

    Re: Air Filter for Honda Aqutrax F-12?

    From what I hear, the filter element tends to grow mold before it ever gets dirty from debris. FWIW, most upgraded filters are nothing more that a fine screen mesh. If you think about it, there's not...

    The seller is full of sh!t. I have rarely heard of a speedo issue. And I'm with you, if it is there, you certainly want it to work. Good advice on this site, and parts on eBay are out there.

    Another year and my trusty Honda still chugs on - with a new AGM battery. My '07 F-12X has been relegated to buddy/GF status, so is getting a bit less use. The new GF joined me on the lake Saturday...

    Re: Laser Iridium Plugs

    I have found this rule to be true. If I have less that 50 hours, I try to just clean them up. New plugs always get me a few more RPM and those are steady (does not hunt at highest RPM).

    Re: Love my new GP1800, but it's no Honda

    It's worth noting at 40 hours my GP now leaks water and oil. Water from the pump area and oil from the starboard side of the engine. My F-12X hit 240 hours and remains trouble free.

    So, when on the hose, mine acts similar... takes a while for water to work its way through the system, and yes, once warm the water will get hot enough to steam a bit. I think you are OK.
