Open/Closed Loop Cooling and Saltwater
It's been a long time since I've had me a nice toy. Used to race snowmobiles back home and did some motocross as well. Man I miss it. Now that I'm down in Florida on the Gulf coast, I'm looking at PWCs.
The Honda R-12X caught my eye as well as the SeaDoo RXP and Yamaha FX HO. One of my concerns is that of the closed-loop vs. open-loop cooling systems. Whichever machine I get will rarely ever see fresh water. I'll mostly be riding in the gulf and intercoastal waterways.
My concerns lie with durability and the open cooling systems in saltwater. I welcome your advice and experiences!
