    Hour meter????''s

    Came across an owner of a 2011 Sea Doo GTS. The ski had only 9 hr (digital display) on it. It was obvious that the ski had well over a few hundred hours of use on it. The owner said the ski hit over 1000 hours and then started back at zero. In complete amazement, I shaped a pic of the engine. This thing had salt corrosion all over it! I was very impressed that the engine could last that long with basic maintenance (according to the owner). I was also surprised that Sea Doo would have the engine hour meter reset after 1000hours. Has anyone else encountered this? And if so, why would Sea Doo not allow the meter to pass 1000 hr? I do not personally know the owner of this ski, but have no reason to doubt his claim, as the ski is not even for sale.

    Yes I've heard of the meter starting back at 0 after 1000 hrs.
    Yes doos can run for many more hrs if properly maintained.
    I have seen some gti and gts skis with 1700+ hrs and the original motor..
    Had to be a rental for it to have 1000+ hrs in 3 years...

    Usually because the hour meter display is only 3 numerals. I bet the total hours is stored in the ECU unless it was ever reset.

ID:	323133If you enlarge this photo, and then scroll down to the bottom portion of the engine you can see where all the black engine paint has been eaten away. Nothing left but the corroded silver on the engine body. This machine still runs like a new one though, other then some cosmetic blemishes, you would not know the amount of hours it really has. All this abuse just proves to me that Sea-Doo makes a great machine.

    No you can't reset the ecu. It stores the hours.
