    Buy a honda or not?

    I currently have a Yamaha FX HO Cruiser and am seriously wanting another ski, mainly to keep my son off of mine! I have been told to avoid the Hondas, and stick with Yamaha or Kawasaki. What do you Honda owners say? I sure like the looks of Honda.

    The Honda is a very fun ski and can be reliable if you do the proper corrosion control. The non turbo is less maintenance than the turbo and is about 4 MPH slower [55 MPH]. They get the best fuel mileage of any 'ski.

    If I remember correctly the HO Cruisers have different size engines for different years. Compare yours to something like a 2007 F-12X and 2007 F-12 (or 2008 F-15X and 2008 F-15X, etc. - just google them). I like the turbos but as JR mentioned that turbo needs to be bathed in CRC 656 after every ride.

    I love my Hondas!
