How far you go for a friend?
Ok guys. My buddy has a 06 gtx limited. I pick it up outta storage for him this year. Then it wont start. He's 19 just like me and goes ahh take it to the dealer. I'm lk no man. So I take the battery out of mine, obviously the battery went bad over winter and it fired right up. So I couldnt take it anymore, it has never been washed and waxed, so I do that for him as he plays basketball. Then take it to the lake. He comes over and goes it isnt running right. I take it out 6400 rpms... obviously blown supercharger. Calls his dad up he goes put plugs in before we do supercharger. So I change the plugs for him while he eats a sandwhich in the cottage. Take it out again and still doesnt run. Pull it outta the lake and take it to the dealership. Did all the warrenty info for him etc... lol. It was one of those classic days. How many of you guys do/would do the same thing for a buddys ski?

Sounds like you are enabling poor behavior. And being used.
He couldn't or wouldn't wash and wax his own PWC?
Doesn't want to learn how to change spark plugs?
'Take it to the dealer...' - Who would be paying the bill?

i used to be like that.
i among a 100 other things i did for the guy i did an intake gasket on his g/f now wifes car.very easy job just time consuming on the chevy 3.4. he just sat there and they ever said thank you.about two years ago we went out to the bar. some how the guy got stupid drunk. he was puking ever where from what i saw he had not consumed that much alcohol so i took him to the hospital. well he must consumed way more then i saw so i called his wife told her he was at the hospital and left his a** there. he never spoke to me again. probably one of the best things to ever happen to me.
