    Meaning of "needs top end work?"

    I know this sounds like a newbie question but is this what people mean when they say "top end?"

    I've seen several jetskis recently that said that they needed top end work.

    Top End generally refers to the top half of any motor is in need of freshing up/repair/replacement...

    Like a new set of rings, pistons, honing of combustion chamber, head or head work, valves, springs, gaskets, etc...anything from the top of the crank UP on any motor...

    Think of the ski being like a girl. If either needs top-end work, you should shy away... Ron

    Some times "top end work" can be a learning exp. I bought a ski that needed top end and did the work myself and learned alot about the ski. The girlfriend at that time, well she needed top end work (above the shoulder) and she still does. That was a very well learned lesson. Now she's someone elses problem.
