Greetings.

My name is Marco, I'm from Portugal and i'm 36 years old.

Been into PWC's since 2008. Had a 98 yami GP800, 2006 RXT 215 and a recently sold 2008 RXT-X 255.

If all goes well, nest week, my 3 up spark will be here. :D

Decided to sell the 255 "beast" because in here we pay very high taxes every year and the gas is also very expensive. For the 255 i paid about 500 Euros every year. This tax is calculated by the machine's horsepower... about 2.35 Euros for each Kw. The 95 oct gas is about 1.60 euros a litre.

Now you see why i sold the 255. I think i made the right choice... the spark should be a euro saver.

Hope i can learn a lot with you guys.

Regards

Hello everyone.
Picked up my spark this monday.
Today took it to the water and put 1h30m on it.
Already vtech'd to 109 hp and flame arrestor removed.
Expectations exceeded. Awsome ski. Makes me forget the supercharged rxt-x. The sport mode is insane in this little ski. It reaches top speed in no time.

Are worried about break in? Sounds like you're already thrashing the baby girl ;)

Really love the ski. By the way, i have an alternate solution for the flush kit for the ibr skis. The dealer installed it for me. It's accessible through the side engine cover. I'll post some pictures if someone wants to do the same.

Never tried it without the tune. Only had a test drive of the 60 hp before i bought mine.

Here are the photos of the flush kit that the dealer arranged for me.

Hello everyone.
Took the spark out this weekend. Awesome ski and great fun. Put more 2 hours on the meter and just half a tank (15 liters), most of the time fooling around.

Here are some pics
