    Coming from Seadoo over to Yamaha (Couple Questions)

    Have been searching and will still be searching the site but I like to hear directly.

    So I picked up a pair of 2002 XLT 1200's today with 40 hours each on them. The older man that had them bought them brand new, got sick in 2008/2009, eventually got completely disabled and couldnt spend time with them. I lake tested them both today for about 10 minutes each and they started and ran good as I hoped they would.

    I am not looking to drop a bunch of cash into them right now but am definitely looking for any guidance as to some things to do for prevention to any future issues. Someone mentioned D-Plate and Waveater clips (which I am sold on). Can you guys help shed light on some good preventative steps since these will be for my wife and kids? I really just want stock, reliable skis.

    I really think I want to stick with oil injection so I was looking to know how to prepare the oil injection system for long term reliability.

    Thanks a million. Even though I am very mechanical, this will be a new learning process for me.

    Hello, good find you have there. You seam concerned enough to do a good check out of all the systems and do as Beerdart said just ensure the oil line hoses are secure (clamps are best). If the oil injectors are working there is no reason to believe they will just fail .... keep em! keep good fuel and replace plugs is about it. They will both serve you well for many more years. Good Luck

    For safe measure, I am ordering .125ID Tygon to replace the oil lines, Wave Eater PV clips and D-Plates.

    Changing out the oil lines sounds like a good idea in theory until you actually try to do it. The lines go from the carbs on the starboard side to the front of the engine. You have to remove the whole exhaust to get to it unless you are some kind of ninja.
