- There have been no major mechanical issues with any of these Sparks to date.
- The steering stems on a couple of them are a little loose. Most of the riders are waiting for an aftermarket stem so they can fit their Spark with race bars.
- Only one of them has a small crack in the plastic. The crack is from Brent head-butting the top piece of the Exoskel in front of the bars with his helmet after coming off while doing a superman.
- A couple of the plastic pieces (mainly the small storage lid) is fading a little faster than expected.
- It is hard to get your favorite sponsors stickers to stick to the Spark’s plastic for very long, so have several sets in waiting.
- Three of Four of the Sparks are running race tunes, still on pump gas with absolutely no issues.
- One person can remove the top deck for maintenance with little or no problems.
- Even after being upside down in the water, more than once, the inside of the hull stays DRY and CLEAN! What this means for these riders is, after a long day in the salt water you spray the outside with the hose to wash the salt off, flush the motor and put it in the garage; about 10 minutes tops!
- They just run… whether you are riding around dolphin watching or at full throttle the entire time.
- The Spark is lite weight: it is nimble in the water with any rider on it, a blast in the surf jumping waves, two people can pick it up off the beach and put it on a trailer, or with a couple more people you can slide it in the bed of a pickup truck!
- It’s about $20.00 to fill up the tank with 93 octane… and you can ride it hard all day!
Is this a machine that I can keep for 4-5 years without any issues (other than maintenance). I hope they are nothing like BRPS 3d machines. Those we're a mechanical nightmare!
