Open/Closed Loop Cooling and Saltwater

Hey all!

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!

Thanks much.

So SeaDoo or bust, eh? They're the only ones with a closed system. That correct?

Ah, okay. That's what I was looking for. Flushing after every use isn't a problem.

Thanks mate!
