    highest hours from n/a 1.8 ski...

    just out of curiosity and a tribute to the n/a 1.8 motor with routine oil changes....what kind of hours are you guys pushing? i got to thinking about it as ive got a 13 vxs with only 38 hours in 10 months....therefore im guestimating a modest 50 hours a year would be my norm and kinda getting an idea that this thing may keep me on the water for a quiet a while given that i stay on top of things.....so who has a butt load of hours and what if any break downs have you had to deal with??

    Well how's 1150 hours on a 09 FX SHO? Technically on a recent 2nd engine, but still impressive.

    They get 1200+hr on vx skis all the time here in the keys. Once they get that old, theyll ship them off to
    Jamacia where theyll get another 1000 hours. If you go on a cruise and see skis being rented on a Beach. You can pretty much figure 1000+hrs on them.

    Ive seen a few vxr with 7-900 hrs...they usually get blown up long before they can put that many hrs on tho.
