    Dumb question but is Bad to go full throttle for too long?

    Is it bad to go full throttle too long? And is it bad on the ski to do like 180s and flip it once in awhile if you turn it back over the correct way?

    It cannot be good for them. My skis will top out at about 52, and I tell everybody that rides them that max speed is 40. I know they go above that, but I hope that will reduce extended full throttle runs. For flipping them, as long as the water does not get inside the hull, you should be ok.

    what kind of ski is this?
    As for flipping them, I would never do that. Never on purpose!

    Full throttle, I do it day in and day out....

    Full throttle has never been an issue on my Kawai 750 zxi, but constant idle now thats an issue ... have to go WOT just to keep carbin build up out. Good Luck :

    Full throttle on a well tuned 2 stroke is ok. Full throttle on an engine you are unsure of the tuning is a bad thing. I usually don't let anyone else ride my machines until I am sure of the tuning of them
