    Some differnt questions about sparks

    I just picked up a spark , i have a few questions about them .

    Does the ski have a battery draw ? As i keep mine in storage with no power so i cant keep a charger on battery my hx had a draw on battery . Retired my hx for the spark

    What is weird is not being able to see the motor to look for leaks .
    im thinking it needs a bilge i know it has a suction with pump

    Does anyone know about the bumper protectors ? Im talking about the 3 piece set from seadoo
    how does it mount ? R they worth it ?

    How does it read the speed ? I didnt see any thing like a paddle wheel on bottom ?
    Gps ?

    In reading manual 50 hours for oil change or a year ?
    Being a 2stroke guy that i am
    all my bikes and skis smoke!
    Its so much easier to work on a 2 stroke
    Thanks
    i do like the ride i went with some buddies And we went thru some chop and i noticed both my buddies watching me to see how it handled in the rough for being a light ski i think seadoo hit a home run to jump start the sport i have been jetsking since 1990
    with the price of the two skis people are buying boats
    I havent had the deck off yet but looking forward to it !

    Didnt get ibr i dont need a reverse or a brake all i see is more to break and more costs

    Is this ace motor a good motor ? Asking a little late

    1,Ours does not drain any battery when the key is off.

    2, Yes its a bit hard to see if it starts to take on water, we have installed pumps just to be sure.
    One our turbosetup we will wire a small light to go on if pump start to work so we know.


    4, It sadly use rpms vs speed and max it will show is around 50 mph, but there is support for gps in the dashboard so maybe sea doo will release a gps module in the future.
    5, Yes we think that its a very good engine!, We are about to test the limits with our hi power turbokit.

    We done 165 hp with stock compression and seems to be fine.
    But long time testing will tell more.

    I know the ibr uses gps for speed. I also know the 60hp uses the rpms to calculate speed. I do not know about the 90hp without ibr
