    2013 Kawasaki Ultra Lx wet ride?

    This is my first post here !! I'm looking at a 2013 Kawasaki Ultra Lx how does this ski handle rough water chop? Is it a wet ride?? I ride in the bay and sometimes it gets choppy looking for a Dry ride I've got a 05 Honda F-12 I like the ski but hate the wet ride Have they fixed the driveshaft bearing problem with these Ultra's?

    Maybe a guy who has gotten tossed around in the big Chop on a Honda F-12. the Ultra LX cuts through most of the chop like a Luxury liner................

    Hondas are the worst in chop.
    You get drenched..

    Ultra is a very dry ride especially compared to any Honda ski.

    If your looking to purchase a new ski just buy the max extended warranty offered and have fun WFO....

    RIP ON....

    Just a thought, if the Yams and Kawis are so reliable (n/a models), why do so many recomend extended warranties? Dealers that I know that sell all three models don't even push the warranties except on s/c models.

    Same dilema I have. If i buy new, it will be the LX. The HO is about 4k higher.
