    W.F.O.

    Waiting on delivery of my very first jet ski

    A 2007 GTX with 40hrs.

    We get occasional dead calm, glass conditions, and was wondering how long can you hold it wide open without putting to much strain on the engine, wondering if 25 miles of wide open would be possible

    Im pretty sure on a n/a 4 tec.. You could go wide open throttle for about 500 hours..

    Use good oil, Do all regular maintance.. And RIDE!

    Correct, I am familiar with the heat, and possible grenading of a supercharger.

    So.....,25 miles wide open in glass conditions would not be considered abusive ?

    What kind of mph could I expect ?

    I'd think it would probably do mid 50's - That's just a guess though, I'm sure someone more familiar with the NA skis will comment.
