    How long is it safe to run WOT without without long term damage to motor

    I know with boats they say you shouldn't run WOT for very long without shortening life of motor. Just wondering for like the FX SHO, etc. how long you can run near or at WOT without causing more than normal wear on the motor. Thanks

    If its stock..... no damage will happen......when you raise boost and rev limiters you start to hurt the relialbility......the ski was designed to run wide open for long peroids of time under stock conditions.
