    Kawasaki STX15F capsized........is there anything to worry about??

    Invited people out to go jetskiing, somehow they managed to capsize our STX15F, is there anything I need to worry about. We did flip it over right away then went 1/4 mile back to the dock.

    I flipped my 250x, rolled it the wrong way and it's fine.
    I'd check the oil for any water and hose it out the hull if you were in salt water.

    should be ok as long as it shut off. butisnt it true that we can drive our skis for ever without flipping them but as soon as you hand it offand turn your back its upside down in the lake. lol drives me nuts.

    Sometimes you get lucky sometimes not. Flipping in salt water is more serious. The status indicator or multi-function gage can allow water in through the bottom if fractured. Some wire connections near the seat line may get soaked. The airbox should be drained at the rubber bulbs if equiped. Salt water will eat electronic shit pretty fast. I'd personally treat a salt water dumping differently than fresh water even if there was not hydraulic lock or water fouling at the spark plugs.
