    Where do I grease the Ultra 250 Shaft???

    Every other ski I had has a grease fitting. I cannot find any on my ski or in the shop manual?

    Is it easy to grease the pump? Sorry, but I have done this on the Yami and the seapoo, but I don't know how on my beloved 250

    There is no grease zerks on the 250 pump. I just lube pump tunnel through grate about once a month and also pull pump cone to check for water intrusion, put some grease around surface and O-ring and replace. should be good to go.

    That method is effective only on 2005 and older Kawi skis, not on 2006 and later 4-strokes, obviously including 250/260 because you can only check outside of the rear bearing when the rear cone is removed. You would not know the condition of the front bearing which goes out first in 99% of time if not 100%. You must remove the pump from the ski to check for water between front and rear bearings and service them correctly on 2006 and later 4-storkes on Kawi.

    It sounds like a way for Kawi warranty to protect themselves. If it goes bad they can try to say you did not maintain it per recommended service.

    The manual says:

    "Initial 20 hours, then every 50 hours or every year whichever comes first."

    You've got to be kidding! This obviously shows they had some issues with the 250/260X I'm guessing.
