    Bought a 2004 F12X with FIVE hours on it...anything to consider?

    Found a silver/black F12X with 5 hours on it...couldn't believe it...snatched it up for a bargin basement of a price.

    Drained 12 year old gas, refilled, cranked it over and it started up..ran it for 15 seconds to make sure the idle smoothed out and it did.

    Any special considerations for something that sat so long?

    Obviously an oil change is in order (yes I checked that it had oil and it looked semi clear before starting)..

    Do you think the pump needs new grease, or is 5 hours 5 hours and grease doesn't age with time?

    Anything else to think about and get done over winter?

    I would at least run some injector cleaner through the system, Berryman B12 or Tectron
    Y'all know me, still the same O.G. but I been low-key
    hated on by most these &^$$@s with no cheese, no deals and no G's, no wheels and no keys, no boats, no snowmobiles, and no skis, mad at me cause I can finally afford to provide my family with groceries

    WWSRD , What would Speed Racer do ?

    What! 2004 with five hours. Your not gonna get away asking for advise and not at least posting some pics of that thing in here. We wanna see that thing.

    So be advised the exhaust manifolds will corrode from the inside and leak water into the engine. 2nd if the battery was connected all these years your ECU may alert you to a code 25. You'll see the f1 light flash. It wont be the knock sensor its a bad ecu. They all do it 100%. Also make absolute sure you have water coming out the pisser in the back and it should be gushing hard from the black plastic box over the jet pump. If not your exhaust pipe is clogged inside and this will melt the plastic pipe inside. You will sink your ski if this happens. Three major things i can think of from experience. You'll love this ski though otherwise.
