    Kawasaki's Amazing Sponsons

    I was at the boat show today in AC and actually heard the Kawasaki salesperson tell a potential buyer that the purpose of the sponsons on the Ultra 250x was to reduce the spray from the hull while riding.

    nice

    Now isn't that comforting to know that dealers and companies hire such knowledgeable sales reps? Just think if you were new to the PWC world..you may buy it based on what he says, and what he says may be pulled directly from his anus

    I spoke with my dealers tech on the phone just the other day to have them do the SS wear ring and solas just to save time/lack of tools...

    The tech asks me what I am doing to the ski...as I was mentioning things such as OPAS etc, he became confused and sounded like a complete idiot..yeah I will use my manual pal and do everything myself thanks...buh bye...

    WOW I was at the AC show today aswell. Did you by chance see Lacy Powersports booth. They had a green RXP with a claimed 500 HP. It was a RXP top deck with a custom bottom hull. The only thing he told me about the hull was that they worked off of a Kawi hull. After some convincing he took the seat off and WOW. The new hull put the motor lower allowing them to make a full header that went toward the gas tank to a turbo!!! The turbo is very close to the glove box. They didn't let me look at it long so I don't know much more. There was no pump or ride plate. They were hoping to get 107 MPH!!!!

    Has anyone seen this ski? I was very impressed I got one picture of it, sorry no pics of the engine.

    I did see the Lacy Ski. I started the above thread about it as well.

    Its an STX-R hull. He is trying to break 110 with it. I didn't have to convince them to take the seat off. I just reached up and did it. It's there for show.
