Can I tow my JS behind my ultra
I remember reading one time that there may be an issue to tow the JS550 on the water is this true? I plan on towing it a few miles on my way out to our hang out spot.

+1 on that, it'd be best to have someone ride it there but if not, take it slow and go easy on the turns

Yeah ill take it slow and see how it works out. I
Was worried about slamming water into it with out it running but I guess there's no issue there?

In theory, you might push some water up from the pump, into the cooling system, and into the exhaust. This could collect in the exhaust, then flow back to the cylinders.
In the old days, there were expansion hulls that you could slide onto the 'Ski to make it more stable.

Pull the nose up on the ass-end of that Ultra and pull it like you stole it!

/\ /\ /\ this. Or make like a sled to tow it on. The JS will submarine and roll if you try to tow it. A buddy of mine used a piece of plywood with an Eye bolt through it to tow his skis behind his boat. The bolt being long enough to go through the eye on the nose of the ski, then attached the tow line underneath the plywood to the eye. The width of the plywood kept the nose of the ski on top of the water. Chris

Pull the plugs and make sure that no water made it into the cylinders before firing it back up....
