How do the Yamaha 4 strokes hold up?
I have been playing with sea doo for a while now but was wondering how the Yamaha 4 stroke engines hold up?
I am NOT looking to bash ether brand just want to know if the engines hold up better/worse or about the same and sea doo 4 strokes.
It seems to me the sea doo have some issues depending on the years (ceramic washers, weak valves, weak timing chains)
It makes me wonder if all the skis are like this or not.
What approximately dose it cost to do a rebuild on a Yamaha 4 stroke?
Are the engines and parts expensive?
Do these engine have any weak parts in them from the factory? (sea doo example ceramic washers in the superchargers up to 2008 )

I believe the normally aspirated 4 cylinder, 4 stroke, 1800cc engines are (by far) the most reliable PWC engines currently available.

you need to look and see what the rental companies are using for their ski's.....thoes are the guy's to ask about real time durability. The VX110 is an oftien rented ski...my FZR has 150 hours on it and its running great...my VXR is running great and has a whopping 14 hours on it..lol

Going on 400 combined hours on our supercharged FZ's with zero issues.
Our Sea-Doos required over $15K in warranty work in 4 years. Next question...?
