    Whoever told you that does not know what they are talking about.
    How are they claiming they are junk. It is a very solid good pump. The Kawi pumps were upgraded in 2010 and have never had an issue since. The ones prior were just a bearing issue that could cause damage it the bearing went out. Not like it was every pump just some. It is easy to upgrade those pumps to current standards. If you damage the 300 pump I would not expect it to be covered under warranty because you did something to cause it.

    Depends on where you rise. Fresh or salt, How many hours you put on a year, and the type of riding you do. Always wide open or cruising the lakes and rivers. It does require a little more than some of the other skis but if you know the difference between a phillips and standard screwdriver you can pretty much take care of all of it yourself.
    Follow the owners manual. Be sure to inspect the exhaust filter and you may need to clean the intercooler when you see the performance start to drop. Other than that no different than other skis. If you are in salt water it will take a little bit more TLC. It is a great ski and can stand up to some good abuse. They are mechanical so things can happen but all in all a quality ski.

    I've never heard of anyone having problems with the pump on the 300x. I'd go as far as saying the 300x pump is the best out there. Enjoy your new ski.

    Very few. Besides props not tightened enough from the factory.
