Thread: 300 curse?

    300 curse?

    Does anyone have 300 hrs on ski? What would be the expected life of a seadoo gtxl if all the PM is done and not totally WTFO all the time? I am reading of the 100hr mark for the SC. But does the engine have a MTBF? I am new and wondering how bullet proof can a ski be before the Engine is toast even with PM and proper care? Thanks

    Well since the engine and rotating assembly are supposed to be solid to 350hp a Stock or lightly modified one should live long with proper PM.

    Yes there is a 300 curse, at 300 hours, you and your ski will be kicked into the pit of death.

    Yep, at 300 hours, a large Rhino comes to your house and rams a big hole in the hull, then flings it into the water.

    Since I took this off topic(sorry), I will answer your question.
    As you stated, if you keep the S/C up to snuff every 100 hrs or so, the engine itself will last a LONG time. There was a thread on here of a ski in Florida with over 1000 hrs on it with no issues.
