Honda Aquatracks F-12x
HI Honda guys
I have just become the proud owner of an Honda Aquafax F-12X. She is a 2006 and only done 16 hours so just like new with out the $12000 price tag. Tried her out done 3 hours top speed 65 and goes like a rocket. Leaves my Yamaha VX in the dust or maybe wake I should say.
Questions if you don't mind.
The dealer said all Honda's knock and at idle speed it does - is this true?
What Oil should I use?
Dealer said don't check oil when cold only when hot as it has a dry sump (whatever that is)
Reverse does not seem very good but the gate does move all the way any ideas?
She is running on Premium
So any advice, things I should know and who is central Florida looking to go for a ride.

The oil is very hard to check properly and many of the Honda Dealers even overfill it. There are post on here by Nitro on how to properly check it. There is a huge amount of infor on here and in the Honda Forums of PWCTODAY.COM.
We have a great ride coming up on Labor Day in the best place to ride in the US. The Suwannee River ride will spoil you....

Just looked at the thread http://www.pwctoday.com/showthread.php?t=270728&page=1 This is a great thread for advice.
The best ride I have done is the MudBug in LA that was fantastic. Never know might make to the Swanee I am just back from riding in Panama city for a few days.
I have looked not yet found Nitro's thread on the oil but will keep loo

OK here comes a dumb question.
I looked at the thread and thought that looks easy great. Then looked at Ski but don't see anywhere at rear of engine to check oil.
So can you tell me where this is so i can check my oil.

Well finally found the way to check the oil. That must be the dumbest thing ever. They guy who sat at his drawing board and came up with that should be hung!
Thanks for the explanation I would never have got there on my own.

The Honda has a dry sump system [like an aerobatic aircraft] which makes it more complicted than a wet sump system.
