    Tunnel cracks are still a prob. Alex cracked his (05) and almost sank his boat.

    Hi Dave,

    Tunnel reinforcement, Gas Valves, Balanced flywheel lapped on. Problems solved.

    Its just a little bit of work and money

    I don't believe the 05' has valves and I really don't hear of too many crank problems. Us "flat water" lake grudge racers have less to worry about as far as the crank snout.

    Your right Voodoo, on the powervalves. Its a good idea to have flywheels balanced and lap them to the snout. You just don't get to ride on glass all the time unless you are one lucky SOB.
