    High speed turns okay for F-15?

    This might be a newbie question but I don't want to kill my new pwc in its first year so I wanted to know if there are any downsides to doing high speed turns on my new baby.

    Cool, I've already had 6 hours of fun on my baby. I've got another question too, with school coming up I'm not going to ride every weekend like I have been now. So how long would you say is too long to leave a pwc sitting in the garage. The manual says two weeks but that seems a little unreasonable. (Not including winterizing of course)

    I put mine up for several months at a time but I use fuel treatment and winterize it. I have been doing this for several years now without any problems. Sometimes I will let one of them sit in the summer for a few weeks also. I like to ride the R12X the best. I don't have a 15 I have a F and a R12x.

    Alright cool, so you would say that about three weeks without winterizing it would be okay for it to sit?

    Depends on how cold it gets where you are at. I get freezing temps (into the 20's) where I live and I don't winterize. Just make sure I've ran all the water out.
    I do ride year round as the big blue briney is nearby.
    Where do you live?
    If you are not going to be riding more than a month a battery tender is good as it will help your battery last and keep it fresh for when you need it.
    Oh yeah, don't do high speed turns on your ski. It is possible you may smile so big the top of your head may fall off from too much fun.

    I live in Ohio and we get below twenties in the winter so I'm going to have it winterized and I bought a battery tender also when the winter rolls around. And good advice on the turns, I'll try to frown.
