    Newbie, Most dependable super-charged machine?? Yam, Kaw, Seadoo,???

    Been surfing this entire site for a year or two now,, the yamaha guys/section seem to be a tad more talkative and tech minded, i am finally ready to jump into the game for a ski,, but have been following such threads about supercharger clutch failer, this bearing, that broke, that came from the factory f__cked up,, etc etc... i am no wrench ,,, have all these problems been ironed out with these ski's yet, or is the same demons haunting most of these boats???? only looking for minor mods exhaust etc etc an go riding,, river and ocean riding,,, but have lil time for wrenching.,, i know everything is mechanical an will have problems eventually, but not out of the box...
    so i guess the question still is has yamaha corrected the sc problems of early year.?? thanx forum. i've hung at my local dock and seen the impressive hole shots of the kaw's they seem similar to the sho's ,,not so much the rxt's,,,

    I was actually wondering the same thing today. My guess is the current crop of SeaDoos are the mostly reliable SC'ed skis, but I'm interested to see what input you get.

    as the normal question go, it depends on where you ride, rough open seas,choppy lakes or twisty rivers will make a huge differance in what ski you will want, no sence in buying a huge FXSHO if if it will never see the ocean. look into the VXR/S for a lighter high performace well handling ski

    What demons, what problems? The intake grate swap is the only thing I suggest, and we have a sticky on that. It seems like if you have been surfing this site for a year or two, you would already have the answer to your questions. Some of the guys pushing big boost monsters have had to go to the Riva dampener on the SC, but the "early year" Yamahas never had any big issues that would pose a problem for a newbie who is only planning on doing a few "minor mods." We are going on nearly 400 combined hours on our 2009 FZ's and they haven't had any problems at all. Our Sea-Doos had approx. $15K in warranty repairs in 4 years. If you have little time for wrenching and/or maintenance as you say, then Yamaha is a great choice; plus you can get a 5 year warranty on them just in case.
