    easyest to work on

    I know alot of you only own between 1-4 skis...but I was wondering which 2 stroke ski you guys think is the easyest to work on.
    I think its a tie between the polaris 3 cylinders and the raider....I personaly like my raider as a test bed for my experiments. I can pull the whole motor and be down to the crank in about 2 hours. Plus I think its the only ski that can be pulled with the exaust pipe on.
    What u guys think....

    I think the Raider is very easy to work on because of the hood that lifts up and allows access to everything. I know when I was changing my fuel sender in my GP, I wished my hood lifted up to allow easy access to the top of the tank. All of the Yamaha's that have hoods that lift up are the easiest in my opinion.

    Sea-Doo 580/650/720 motors are a breeze. The Sea-doo Rave valve motors 787/951 are easy too. just a few more added parts like a balancing shaft

    The GPR motor is easy also, but the exhaust upipe and stinger can make a nun cuss her first time.

    I've only worked on doo's and yam's

    My old Kawi 750 was a breeze.

    gpr pipe blocking easy access to the carbs...imo was not an easy bike to work on....I always thought that was the worst flaw of the gpr platform.

    #1 any stand up
    #2 any 3 seater with a 2 cyl 2 stroke
    #3 raider, blaster or yami with the pop up hood
    #4 2 stroke doos but I wont touch them because I hate fiberglass splinters

    Polaris suck. I have one. and have had the engine out 3+ times. nothing is easy on them except the pump.
