    2006 Sea Doo

    Had a 2006 Sea Doo. Had been sitting unused for a while. Bought used last year, clean as a pin w/ only 30 hours. It lasted me less than two months. Timing chain broke at 47 hours. Push rods and valves screwed. I will never own another Sea Doo. Good luck.

    If it wasn't properly winterized for storage by the owner...then you have your answer...good luck to you.

    I just purchased one myself.....I've learned this, maintenance records are more important than bruises and scraps......almost thought I purchase a bad unit myself.

    If your new to this sport and don't know much. If seller does not have records, then its buyer beware.

    Yes, I know. A lot of guys do their own maintenance. Prove it!

    Any brand will break if not taken care of. Just because it looked good on the outside, does not mean the internals are in good shape.
    It sounds like the ski had ceramic Sc washers that failed and the motor was not cleaned out properly by the owner or dealer.
