    what is a decent reliable kawi ski?

    I don`t know anything about what ski kawai has that would sufice my riding habit. So I`ll ask you good folks. What ski is decent for cruising. I don`t want the ultra 250, top end not a priority, by reliability is key!
    please tell me something about some models...Thanks...PR...

    The 15F is hard to beat especially since the MSRP was reduced by over a grand on the 08 models.

    I had one for a season, Andy. I wouldn't recommend it for you... the ride is pretty hard in the rough stuff + riding position is a bit cramped (sitting brings your knees up high).

    I just got back from riding my LX with riva plate. I was surprised with the ride. On the LX IMO everything got better with the plate. Top speed with 4 bars left was 57.

    Mileage was 77 miles to the low fuel warning so about 14 gallons was burned but I can tell you all but the last 25 miles were 2 up and most was spent at WOT trying to run with two 250s. The other 25 I just put on and I can tell you they were at WOT or very close to it.


    Unless you just do not like the looks of the 250/LX or the ride or some other part of the ski, I recommend the LX with the riva plate. You get everything the 250X is without the speed or very poor mileage

    No, but I would buy a rabbits foot for the next PWC you buy and put it in the storage compartment!
