    I have a lot of both.
    With the Fuji I think the best engine is the 780. It's extremely reliable, easy on the gas and simple to work on.
    The Domestic engine, I like the 1200 due to the refinements, torque and decent fuel economy. You just can't beat the cc's for torque.
    But my favorite is the Liberty engine with its triple exhaust ports. This engine is very receptive to mods once it's carbureted and trippple piped.

    One vote here for the Liberty engine.

    Cool Liberty engine ?

    I have sooo much to learn.
    1200cc decent fuel economy, Hummm SLX 1200 would probably be a blast.
    It seems like 80% of the Fuji issues are old fuel lines and rotting carb internals.

    I have to vote for the Fuji because that's all I have.

    Only rode a domestic powered ski once. It was Casey's SLX 1200, and it had TONS of pulling power right out of the hole.

    Also remember that most of the domestics are all bigger cc's (except the 700), so they will all have more power than any of the Fuji's except the PRO 785.


    It appears that the elec system is the weak spot on the domestics, but once that's addressed, they run and run and run....

    That's about right. The 780 with the newer style pump seems to have far less isssues then the 750/650 stuff for sure. It doesn't hurt it is a stronger engine as well.

    I have to agree, it's hard to kill one unless there is an over heat issue or the ignition just fails.
    The Liberty engine downfall seems to be when there is a fuel injection issue. They run them so lean from the factory so just a little leaner and it's hello new piston.

    I have had Great luck with my domestic 1200's, in 2 years I have never had A problem with either of them and we do NOT puppy my crafts. Oh wait, I did have 1 issue, A bad MFD! And that is very common, but to find A MFD for A Pro with the Fast style trim display......Good luck!! I have been looking for over A year without luck. I do have A new MFD in it now, but it is the slow trim style type. Months ago I would have traded A 2 brand MFD's for 1 used Pro type. Oh well. I will keep looking and keep guessing where the trim is on that craft. So if anybody knows of A MFD for A Pro let me know, cost is not an issue(with-in reason).

    Thanks, RiZ
