Paul Gamblin: @Bladeus99 Hi Bladeus99 thanks mate thay are good ski's the FX 's I have
had no mods done yet ! but i get 57 mph flat out. Have you had any mods
done to yours if so does it make much difference to the top end ?
2manreds: @antharding yh these are really good for towing wakeboards and rings, also
fast and very fun , i would advise getting a yamaha HO or SHO , or you can
check out the seadoo wake , they built that focusing on wakeboarding
drgreenthumbgt4: @ demonrose your a moron great vid lads love the fx
loansharky: What are the differences between the two (other than 20 hp)? Do you notice
much of a power difference really?
Cody Green: great vid! love the ski's. I just bought a 2003 FX 140 cruiser, i can't get
enough of it! i was thinking about taking mine to the coast of florida, but
isn't salt water hard on your impeller?
footballjag: will the 140 pull a 2 person tube?
Paul Gamblin: @loansharky Hi the 160 high output makes a big difference to the initial
acceleration from stand still and has a slight edge on the flat out and top
end about 3-4 mph more makes it a bit better to jump the ski with a sharp
squeeze on the acceleration and the 160 HO is more economical than the 140
Kien Tran: Which one do you prefer more?
Bladeus99: Nice ski's mate. I've got exactly the same 140 myself (2004). Great ski ~
what do you get out of yours flat out, and have you done any mods at all?
Paul Gamblin: hi yes these would definately be a good choice. yamaha are very reliable
and have got a lot of pulling power. the high output will give you instant
lift for a skier but uses a little bit more fuel than the 140. i go out all
day and i usually use about £50 - £60 worth of fuel continuous riding. hope
this helps. it's a great sport you'll love it.
corey ralph: uncle paul you show of
Airbornedsm: we bought a 2004 brand new in 2004, we neglected to change to the oil and
other maintenance,( we just charged the battery every time we go) 300+
Hours and same oil. and the waverunningstill run well and no problem and
still beating people on the water, and no leaking and the engine
compartment is like new.
demonorse: Ya ever go to a beautiful lake with no houses or nothing and then have some
jackass show up riding around on one of these? Scum.
themadmcgill: Great vid guys, I launch from hayling island and do the isle of wight trip
when ever I can, usually on a polaris genesis but just brought a fx ho for
myself so my bruv now rides the genesis. might sea ya down there, all the
antharding: Hi There, great vid! Me and my girlfriend are after a jet ski to mess
around on this summer, it has to be able to pull a skier/ wakeboarder. Do
you think any of these would be a good choice. How many litres of fuel do
you use on an average day out. many thanks, Ant
Paul Gamblin: no the salt will be fine on it just flush out well when you get it back. I
had mine for 4 years now and when I have my serviced at the end of season
they always say it look like new. no sign of corrosion caused by salt water
and I have done about 50 hours in the sea. Yamaha's are a well engineered
bits of kit. Just go and have fun in the sun. Enjoy the sea !! And jump
some waves. And have some good times ;-)
Paul Gamblin: yes the 140 will pall more then 2 person tube
