    Towing a 250x

    I know that your shouldn't tow behind a boat certain jet skis like a RXP. Is it ok to tow a 250X? I'm gong to a lake that doesn't sell premium and might run out of gas and need to tow the ski. Thanks for your help!

    If you know your going to run out why not carry extra? I have on long rides strapped 5 gals on the back of the ski and two 2 gals up front for the total of 9 extra gals of gas.

    WE plan to take two 5 gal can on the boat but don't think that will be enough for the day.

    I do not own that ski but if it is like my Yamaha FX HO, all you need to do is clamp the water intake hose that goes to the engine so you don't flood the engine with water when pressure builds up. I don't think there would be any issue towing if you do that but then again I do not know the specifics of the Kawis. Hope this helps somewhat!

    theres actually 3 cooling intake hoses yes you can as long as the water then doesnt vacuum feed back up through the exhaust at excessive speed.
    as said before do what the manual suggests...
