    I've got about 220 hrs on my 03 GTX SC. Runs great. You can see
    my mods in sig. My son beats the crap out of it though when
    I'm not looking.. I just make sure it's warmed up, etc. before
    anyone but me rides it.

    Many more hours than a 2-stroke will get. Rumor has it that some rented 4-Tec skis have 5000 or moire hours... Ron

    Rentals are also running N/A motors with reduced top speed keys. On the other hand they are being run by novices, idiots and people who just don't give a damn about the ski(or people, or boats, or wildlife, or the planet)

    Someone posted a while back because they hit 999 hours and the hour-meter quit counting. He was pissed because he now can't tell when the service intervals are.

    Thats quite impressive.. would of atleast expected a s/c rebuild in that time.. He has been very lucky that the washers have stayed together

    Yeah, but does the ski only go about 58mph at 6400 rpm?
