2008 FX SHO Owners Attention!!
Well today was a beautiful day here in New Jersey so I thought I would take the skis out and burn some gas. After riding around for about 90 minutes the FX SHO just shut down while going about 40 MPH. After towing it in I found the ski out of gas the the gas tank crushed. The vent line was not secured properly and the tank crushed like someone was standing on it. We still can't figure out why the low gas warning did not sound? I was not personally riding it but a friend who worked at Seadoo dealership was. CHECK your vent line. When my ski was built it was not rigged properly and the vent hose had a huge kink in it. When I opened the gas cap the tank started to regain it's original shape. We put in two gallons of gas and it fired right up.
So why did the low fuel alarm not go off? Back to the dealer on Tuesday. I am going to let them deal with it.

The gauge was probably never right to begin with.

I took mine out for the first ride today. I was unscrewing the gas cap at the station and the tank had so much pressure on it that the cap shot out of my hand, and the chain was the only thing keeping it from orbit. Where is the vent line on these things?

Yep they are one way check valves. I want to hear the pressure relieve when I open my cap lets me know the system is working.
