Default Kawasaki Ultra 300X

How come there is hardly any intrest in the Kaw. Ultra 300X on this forum. One would think the most powerful factory ski ever built would get some attention in the Kaw. forum.

Best reason I can give you is because Supercharged Kawaski Jet Skis have a reputation for being undependable JUNK. My 2006 Seadoo RXT w/RIVA stage III kit will smoke it @ 295 hp.

Really, junk? Never heard that before from the professionals. Seems to me a super charger would be 300% more dependable and instant power versus my finicky turbo in my 05 F-12X.

Oft-parroted by ignorant Sea Doo humpers, but Kawasaki has addressed the reliability issues with numerous upgrades including the new Eaton supercharger, the same blower proven extremely reliable in the CTS-V

LOL. Sure let's compare heavily modded to stock, talk about retarded. Don't forget to rebuild that pos Sea Poop supercharger every 100 hours with the ceramic washers that fail left and right

I have a 300X, the holeshot is ballistic and I would hand you your ass, son. I laugh at gimmicky Sea Junk. Plus that the 300X looks BAD ASS. The Sea Doo looks like a gay train wreck. The only thing you might be smoking is crack.

On topic: the 300X is the best PWC of 2011, hands down. Killer holeshot, amazing handling in ugly chop (which is essentially all I ever see), great handling, and tons of power throughout the rev range. All you ever hear the Yamaha and Sea Doo leg humpers talk about is their silly top speed numbers on glass/flat water. To which I say, WHO CARES? The Ultra is fast when it counts: when conditions get ugly.

I'll be seeing plenty of Sea-Poop and Yamaha skis in the rear view this summer.

First of all That Jolly Green Giant has yet to be proven over 10 hrs of operation. And Your hole shot is pale incomparison to my ski. No factory ski is even close and with the factory governors on it and weighing way to much your going to need that horse power to get up on plane. Why don't you check in with my friend Jerry Gaddis on face book who owns the GREEN HULK forum and PWC Performance now there is a professional who personally helped me dial my ski in. See what true performance guys got to say about the POS you just wasted on money on He runs ONLY Seadoo and Yamaha, as far as the Ceramic Thrust Washers go in the pre 2007 Seadoo superchargers go , you would need to be a moron not to know what to do about them before 100 + hours. Personally I have nothing but Stainless steel washers in all my skis. My RIVA RXT was almost the same horsepower, much lighter, has thru hull exhuast, a pump wedge, new high performance air intake from speed freeks and upgraded Bosch Injectors , with the Riva STAGE III kit which is now probably over 300 HP. Of course I know about the Eaton Super charger, so what? Ain't gonna help the motor from blowing up. If you had an I.Q. bigger than your shoe size you would know you wouldn't have prayer. My ski's hole shot is so strong I have to lean way over the wind screen to keep it from popping a wheelie. The only thing you would see in your mirror is my wake. So BRING it, Don't SING it...ROFLMAO Anytime Anywhere bring your Wallet, cause I won't waste my fuel otherwise.

As far as GM products go Jerry and I both have Z06 Corvettes which are extremely fast, I think we know alittle more than you given our ages. So grow up and grow a brain, sorry you wasted your money. Your type ski is the first one I intend on blowing away. Can't wait to see the sad faces, if they will even try once they hear the thru hull exaust. Sorry you wasted your money on paid spokes persons ad hype.....maybe you should put the crack pipe down

i had an 07 ultra 250x that i purchased brand new in 07, had it four years, did all the recommended maintenance to it and I puy 118 hours on it with not one single problem. I kept it stock so i dunno if that makes a diff? I def rode the piss out of it as well so i don't know why everybody keeps saying kawasaki is junk. Like i said i never encountered one single issue with this ski so im actually in the market for the new 300x. I also have 2 seadoos that i think are great skis too. My gtx has around 180 hours on it and the supercharger is still pretty good too. Its all about pref. IMO. If you take care of it they will last. Any ski supercharged or turbo'd will give you issues sooner or later, personally i think them old 2 strokes are bulletproof if somebodys looking to run the pee pee out their ski for years and years to come. :: puts flame suit on :: lol

I think that is great that your Kawaskai has given you good service, you are right keeping a ski stock is the safest bet if you are not a serious motor head like me. The reason I modified my 2006 RXT Seadoo is because I wanted to build a sleeper from 215 hp to now over 300 hp to piss on the new factory skis and their owners who listen to showroom BS and read funny little articles to blow their heads up with sales and marketing hype. Fact is that all factory skis are governed to run below 70 mph for insurance purposes. My other two skis are bone stock for the wife and kids. So basically my RIVA RXT will piss all over factory skis and it should. Which is pretty cool since most knuckle heads don't realize this and believe the salesman when he says "Its the fastest thing on the water".

Back to why Kawasaki gets a bad knock, there has been numerous posts about crankshafts and pistons blowing with pics to show causing angry owners. With Kawasaki giving them the middle finger warranty. Also their dealer network is pretty grim on the Chesapeake Bay closest dealer to me is 60 miles away where as Seadoo and Yamaha are about 15 miles away. Other than that I got nothin bad to say.

Certainly did'nt intend on my thread getting hi-jacked into a pissing match.



You know there is nothing to be gained by pissing on someone else's world.

I used to see the same garbage in the CorvetteForum.com and it never gets anyone anywhere, well at least not any respect.....
I mean in the end who really cares if your faster, does that mean your a better human being than eveyone else?

I matured past this stage once I hit my early twenties.

My Honda is a slug compared to everyone else's ski in here, but it's my baby, all I can afford, and that's that.

Just my .02

Dude, if you own a Corvette and you are not loyal and competitive the way most Vette owners are then thats your deal. I am very proud of my Z06 and my skis. Just seperating fact from fiction for the youngsters that don't know any better. I will be 54 in June and I am a motor head, not a case of maturity. If you are laid back and don't care thats good for you. Do you think Nascar drivers are like that. I know it doesn't make some one a better human being to be competitive , but I know what does. So don't lecture me about that. Why would you buy a 300 hp ski if you "don't care"? After all you started this with a post and question. All I did is answer it with my opinion.
