    Better pump for the ultra's

    I have the 07' ultra 250. What's the best upgraded pump for the early ultras? What has been happening to the factory pumps? Mine has been good but from what I'm reading there is a better upgrade.

    go to the oem parts store and compare parts from your 250 to the 300, you will need the shaft, bearings and nut and shaft oring, you maybe able to repack and reuse your seals. its as simple as that

    I definitely don't ride easy all the time. I don't even know of any failures personally on the skis with anyone around here. Thanks tho. Ill be sure to swap that out by spring. The parts off the 300 will do I take it right?

    There have been quite a few that survived because of people not knowing. I had a friend with an 07 with over 400 hours of quite a bit of ocean riding on it. That was a very lucky man and I would not say is the norm. I also have a friend that had 2 2008 and both were destroyed in less than 100 hours of calm water riding. It is too easy of a remedy to not do it and have that security of knowing this part is safe. This is the first thing I would upgrade on a pre 2010 Ultra

    i am not trying to open up a huge debate about this but my 08 ultra had 350hrs on it when i sold it..i did pull the pump down for replacement of all bearings an seals twice durring its use..i never had any problems with that ski at all..I did follow a very intensive maintinance program based off of kawi' s recommendation an knowing my own riding style.."full throttle".the biggest job i ever did on that ski as labor an time goes was valve adjustment..i now have a 2012 300x that has 30 hrs as of now now.i will be following the same exact maintinance profile on this as well.i can only hope for the same reliability and worry free enjoyment that i had on my o8..i do love my ultra. and also final note on the 08 jet pump,i did no upgrades i used factory bearings an seals as per kawi's microfisch.
