    Yamaha Wave Blaster 2 1996

    I am 32 years old and I have wanted a jet ski since I was 14. Finally I have the green light from my gf to buy one. I do not have a lot of money. I certainly cannot spend over $3000 (this spring) or over $2000 now, so my options are limited. Besides since this is my first ski I don't want to spend a ton of money knowing I will likely upgrade in a few years.

    I don't need anything crazy. I just want to be on the water. My gf and I are the only ones that will use it. Is it comparable enough for two thin fit people?

    I found this ski on Craigslist and it seems like a good deal. It's a Yamaha Wave Blaster 2. It's prices @ $950, but I'm certain I can get it for $800 including the trailer.

    Is this a good, ok or bad deal? Do these hold up well? I know there is no hour gauge so that worries me, but as long as the compression test goes good I don't see it being an issue. The seller has agreed to meet me @ a lake Saturday. He says the only maintenance it needs is sparkplugs.

    I'm thinking if I buy it I might rip out the fuel injector because I read they can fail and cause engine problems. However, I don't really know what I'm doing, nor have I ever mixed gas for anything. I'm terrible @ car maintenance, but I'm hoping a jet ski is more accessible? Is this a bad idea? should I leave the Injector in place? Should I leave the ski altogether?

    Thanks in advance and if you have any advice for a noobie please throw it @ me.
    I also posted this on the general page
    ? Sorry for the double post, but I'm new here and I don't know where I'm more likely to get a response. Please respond asap because I only have 5 days to decide. Skis sell crazy fast around here if they are priced well. I'm thinking I could buy this and hopefully sell it in two years for about what I paid.

    If it runs, killer deal.
    I'm guessing you meant oil injection, yeah?

    The injection pumps rarely fail, it's usually the lines that crack and break. Running premix is never going to let you down, as long as you always run premix.

    That ski would be home with me if it were closer. (I have it's twin, bought in pieces, if you need any parts.)

    Yes, I meant oil injection. So, I should change it out? Perhaps I could leave the injector and just put new lines in then? Do they shrink and crack?

    Heres a beat up one near me for $1700.
    Good deal if clean title & runs good. This time of year won't go to fast, hopefully. Steve C

    The injection system itself is bullet proof. The weak link is the oil lines. As they age they harden and shrink. That's when it gets ugly. If regular maintenance is done and you replace the lines every few years all is fine. I have had a 93 and 94 vxr pro for 12/15 yrs both still have injection system in tact and running great. I just replace the lines when they start to feel stiff. Same for fuel lines.
