    its all about maintenance, if you take care the ski flush it inside and outside you should be fine. people that do have problems are those who think flushing the engine with salt away is also going to take care the outside of the engine and electronics.

    The issue will be with the Kawi electronics in general. They're sort of a crapshoot compared to Yamaha. The worst problems come from the plastic fittings cracking off at the e-box and allowing water intrusion.
