    Four Stroke Service Life

    What kind of top end service life are you guys getting from the sc four strokes? I think I'll always be a two stroke guy, just curious about the "other side"

    I personally am at over 120 hours in about 12 months and no problem. I suspect we have a few on here that are way beyond that.

    Perhaps it's too early since these sc skis have only been out for what, four years? Anyone have 300 hours yet? What's your compression (vs. new?)
