    No problems on mine at all. I've had it for over 6 months and it's done about 30 hours now.
    Had the 10 hour service when it was due and it was fine.
    Going away for a break shortly and will be taking the ski, and probably using it alone in the ocean, so I took it to my dealer yesterday to plug it into the Yamaha diagnostic system to look for any issues-----there were none.
    Since the 10 hour to now it's used no oil.
    The diagnostic was interesting though----it showed me how I'm mainly riding it.
    Mainly between 4 and 6 thousand revs with about 2 hours between 6 and 8 thousand.

    The only 'small' cosmetic issue I have with it is that the side of the seat had scuffed the hull and the very hard rubber buffers on the front cowl have marked where they hit the beautiful paintwork-----neither can be seen when all's in place though------and I'm not crazy about the 'Cruiser' seat. I don't find it comfortable-----others love it though I'm fully aware of.

    Good luck with your choice----I'm sure you will be pleased with it.

    I fully agree with The Gos.
    I have the SHO Cruiser, my maiden voyage last weekend.
    One word...... AWESOME.
    The overall quality of this machine is amazing. The power, acceleration, turning & features are all there. I have riden many ski's... this one is the best my a mile. I am very happy with my purchase and I know you won't be disappointed either.
    Trust me, go get one!
    Cheers.

    Power plant sucks a lot of gas. That's it.

    It's not so bad on gas if you're cruising between 35-40mph. That's usually what I do unless I'm racing someone. Just cruising a tank can last me more than a day, but if I open it up to 50+ or make some WOT passes I can suck a tank dry in about 2 hours.

    37 hours and still no issues so far.

    All these skis sucks gas, 250x, SHO, RXP/X, RXT/X theres no getting around it. Actually I think the SHO sucks the least out of all them or the 250x not sure tho.
