    Fzs in salt water

    Okay so im upgrading from my 2000 gp1200r to a fzs or fzr. I have finally found a fzs near me but my only concern is it was only used in saltwater. Ive tried searching with no luck but what are the downs to this? It has 100hrs flushed after every ride and dealer maintained. Shall I still be worried? What does the salt really affect? Anything I should look at in particular?

    Salt is a killer. Look Inside the engine for rust, corrosion, white spots... anything on the outside may be worse on the inside

    Salt water shows a lack of maintence, but can be managed. Must stay ahead of it though.

    Most of the hours I have done on all my skis are salt water
    And if maintained correctly there are no issues

    Salt water for all my skis. No issues what so ever as long as it has the correct maintenance and service records. In saying that most skis in Aus are salt water run.
