    Just purchased first PWC ( 2013 FZS ) any general advice or tips?

    Hello everyone, I just bought a new 2013 FZS. I saw the sticky thread about the bucking issue and I have since ordered the R&D Grate + Seal pump kit. Curious if there anything else I should know? Also, what kind of security do you all use to make sure your pwc isn't stolen from a dock or from the trailer? I'm currently looking into my options but I wanted to know what is working for everyone.

    Thanks

    Did you get the YES extended Warranty? If not I would do so. You automatically get a 1 year Warranty with the unit, plus you can add 4 more years of Warranty on top of that (for a total of 5 years).

    If this is your first watercraft I will say you bought a good one with plenty of performance right off the showroom floor. I would just ride it for a while and get used to it. Unless you are racing I would leave the Supercharger alone. Enjoy your new craft.

    As far as Security goes, the Ski comes with that Remote Key which can disable the Ski from unauthorized rides. Read up on the manual as it talks more about this. And, I would insure it. JB

    From what I heard. The R&D grates are prone to breakage.

    Not sure where you are getting your info; the R&D intake grate for the FZR/S has been solid...
    you might be thinking about one for the VXR/S... or something else?

    Id say like 98% of the FZ world runs the R&D grate.

    my advice:

    1-DO NOT "LEND" YOUR JETSKI TO ANYBODY
    2-Purchase Liability insurnace
    3-see rule #1
