    Question Bad Hole Shot

    How many people had a poor hole shot when they bought their ski? I know I did!

    Phil; I bet a good part of your problems are being caused by a sloppy silicone seal job on the pump, grate and ride plate straight from the factory. I'll bet you have gobs of silicone where none should be, and none where it should be ! I see it all the time with the Ultras.

    I agree. I bumped into Eddie at Kroeger today and he said, "That is probably your problem I will warranty the seal. I will replace it with my special supertight seal!"

    Go look inside the RXT pump tunnel bro, some canadian is gettin the good grass before he does our chit as well. How do you think i got to 70mph for free? I spent 3 hours doing nothing but silicone.

    What kind of through hull seal does the kawi have? Could there be an issue with that drawing in air?

    You sayin you got 70 mph just by removing silicone?
    I thought you gutted the airbox and other stuff?

    I got no problem with hole shot anyway...

    Dude (yoyamma) you need to just shut up and get over it mate, kawi has a great ski and all you can input are childish uneducated and irrelevant posts, and it would be good if you actually had a mechanical or technical input or clue, this is the performance section so I for one don't care about fuel ecconomy.
    if you can't help go away I'm sure there's plenty of other boards to complain about elswhere
