951 XP DI worst ever to work on
Just finnished my first 951 DI on a XP and I will never ever work on one again. It has been the biggest pain in the ass I have ever worked on. Nothing on that motor is easy to remove! All I have to say is it better start when I get the key programed. **Rant off**
Well I am at work and bored so whats the worst ski you have ever worked on and would never touch again?

Yamaha XL1200.. the motor is twice the size of the hole under the seat. Per the owners manual, you are supposed to pull the entire hood, gas tank, steering and EVERYTHING off first, just so you can manhandle the motor out of the bow... F. That...
Most of that motor for that ski was assembled IN the hull.. lol.
We've built DI's too... Not really a pain in my book, but a LOT more complex and detail minded than a 951 carb.

Seadoo It would be the GSXL Yamaha almost all are a PITA. The 1200XLT 99 on The carbs impossible!300R PITA X 10 We have a throttle cable recall that requires the pipe removal and throttle body and air box removal... I HATE YAMAHA's They make everything so complicated and Parts don't cross over from one to another.....Ill stop before I loose it completely.. TX21 you are right the DI is tough and has a lot of hoses and stuff. I love the boat though. More fuel efficient and cleaner running that a 4 stroke

I R&Red and engine in an '02 GTX-DI which is a 4-tec hull. You could almost get in the hull with the engine on that sucker.
Yeah, the GSXL would have to be worse than an RX. I avoid them like the Swine Flu.
