    STX 15F sunk in river part 2.

    If you read my last post my jetski was sunk in Laughlin river Mother's Day weekend. I took it to a local shop the next day and they completed 3 oil changes, replaced spark plugs and oil filter. Today I started the motor and opened the oil cap, I noticed water beads flowing no milky oil only water beads. Am I in any danger of internal engine rust?

    if your oil is clean ................run the ski for a few good hrs to dry any left over moisture out of the internals

    As soon as I picked up the jetski at a local mechanic in Laughlin (Wet and Wild) I filled it up and ran it until it was empty. Do I need to run it more asap?

    Out of curiousity, how did you sink your STX-15f?

    Just bought a 2011 version and curious if they are easy to roll over or if you were riding hard when it happened?

    They are stable unless you have 3 large people on them or an inexperienced riders. I have ridden mine in seriously bad water 2 up and never come close to rolling it. I come off the ski way before it starts to tip.
