    2005 Kawi 900

    I know this is the ultra site but I also know this is where all of the action is for now. I am looking at a new 05 kawai 900 for a 2nd ski. Is anyone here familiar with it. How does it ride, what about power, speed, what kind of fuel mileage? Just any thing that you can tell me about it. I am thinking of getting it for my wife. We have a red ultra ordered. Thanks Roger.

    I have worked at a PWC rental for the past 2 years...we ran 05 kawasaki 900s and this past year ran 06 kawasaki 900s. Both were very fun skis, for being rentals.. top speed on smooooth water would be 53-55, i liked the way they handled. They werent too good in rough water and arent the stablest of skis. We would run ours for a season with about 400 hours on em after the season and on most we would only have to replace fuel filters... we still got some for sale! and 06's haha not that you would want one that used... let me know if you have anymore questions

    Thumbs up

    Thanks for the input, I think you have sold me on it. My wife is not going to get over 30. I know it has the same length as the 15f which we just sold, I was hoping for the same type ride with out the power that the 15f had. It sound like a very dependable ski, she probably won't put 25 hrs a year on it, so it should last her a while. Again thanks for the info. Roger

    no problem... if you had a 15f, its basically the same ride, just less power. Like I said 55 tops on glass water. They are a blast to ride though for a three seater. Reliable ski... hope all works out! have fun!
