    Also, take the ski for a ride and get it hot and check the oil level. On the VX if the previous owner overfilled the oil, it may have gotten onto the air filter. Once it gets on there the ski has serious issues with speed and always runs erratically. My first guess is always plugs, after that I run to the air filter. The plugs seem to last about 1 season on these skis, sometimes 30 hours sometimes 80 depending on use. VX's dont like to be idled, thats how the plugs go bad so fast. You can buy the plugs from surdykeyamaha for about $5 each-20% off sale and free shipping. Ask for Luis.
