    Out for a winter ride.... I love glassly water

    I picked up this non running Seadoo gtx for cheap with a trailer, the guy did not know what was wrong with it.... got it home a few weeks ago and changed the plugs and the oil sensors and now here is a video I shot 1/16/2011 near the end you can hear the motor at top rpm and it sounds like NASCAR I love it.... ski showed 56 at that point of the drive by but who cares it's a treat to drive

    Congrats on the ski...Just be careful out there, i seen alot of debris in the water..dont want to suck any of that up into the pump...Then youll be looking at putting a new prop and wear ring in also....

    TONS of debris... I was dodging huge logs the whole time, kinda fun.... but small twigs won't cause any issues right??? They get chopped up I would think, but I had to test drive it and I will do it again I can't believe it's that's easy to destroy a pump

    Not always..They can get wrapped around the impeller or shaft,Stick in between the blades and chew up wear rings....There is no friendly debris when it comes to jetskis..LOL

    Pine Cone shafts have ruined my day before. Small stuff is worse.

    Man that is a lot od stuff in the water. You would be surprised at how small a piece can chew a wear ring up. Been there done that.

    Looks like fun though enjoy. Stop as soon as it sounds or feels different no power cavitating etc

    Well If it's going to happen then it will happen, and that was a day for it to happen there was trees floating by hahaha...And it's Like saying don't drive your car in fear of getting a flat or windshield ding.... It's not that hard to change the rubber wear ring and prop... Done a few on yamahas can't be much harder
