    You might have a good point on longevity. My turbo threw the #3 rod into the valve train at 135 hours. Honda has so far blamed it on the following: The aftermarket solas impeller; residual sand in the cooling jackets that made it overheat without shutting down on overtemp [and storing a code in the ecm]; scratches on the hull that made it look "abused". Its been over a month now with no repairs and no decision on the warranty.

    from what i saw, your motor did not throw a rod, but rather Dropped a Valve,. very common with stock valves.

    Warranty will cover it.

    Iíve seen a lot of this on OEM valves. First ever though for a Honda Ski.

    Thumbs down Re: r12x

    there are problems with the bearing on the pump unit, the seals on the engin cover are not sealing all the way. ( if you leave your boat in the the water over night and rains, it mite senk ) The last thing, when they first came out, the gas would stick wide open... ( THERE WAS A BIG RE-CALL AND STOP IN SELLING THEM AT THAT TIME ) I wouldn't buy one or would I take one for free....!!!!!!!!!

    Arrow Re: r12x

    NO, I have ever worked for Honda... I get all my info from talking to people who own different ski's.. I my self would love to ride one, but I haven't meet anyone that has offer to let me ride one. All my friends have Yamahas. Last, what I say about Hondas many be ture maybe false.. ( like I said," this is what people tell me." ) AND I KNOW, SOME PEOPLE LIE...!

    PS

    If I offended you your ski, I sorry. I don't want a Honda war... I hope this forum clears things up. Keep riding and be safe...
