Ok everyone, the summer is coming to an end for those of us still in College, how many ours does everyone have on their sparks and what model/mods do you have?

I have a 3 up Pinneapple with iBR, convenience package, depth finder, solas impeller and have 65.5 hours on it since I got it at the end of August.

Vanilla, 3up, HO, iBR, convenience package, cargo net + snap in fenders. Ordered it in march got it 2 July... Until now I have about 30 hrs on it. But when is my first service? I'm going to use at least 2 months more, so can I just take it when winter is coming?

Pineapple, 2up, HO, IBR + Conv. package. Got it 2 June and have made 22h since then. Not that much when i compare to others here. I will ride it as long as possible, until the ice gets here. :)
Will do a 25h or 30h service on it myself.

Orange 2-up HO 900 w/IBR and convenience pack. 21hrs no problems and no mods. I like riding in the ocean so 90hp is enough for me.

I don't know what they plan on seeing with an "inspection", it is a new machine... the only things to look at for regular maintenance/wear is the impeller, wear ring, oil, anti-freeze and check that the recalls have been completed.

I do not see the point of an inspection unless you are buying a used machine and want to know everything is up to par.

If you live somewhere where it gets between -40 & -50 Celsius then I would recommend checking the antifreeze to make sure it is good up to the coldest you're climate gets and that you start it up and rev it a bit to get all water out of the exhaust and any other lines.

If anyone else has any winterizing tips please chime in!

I have about 13 hours on mine. I spoke with the service manager where we bought them about an inspection this summer and he said, 'don't bother.' He said just have them winterized at the end of the season and that's it.

X2 Both our Sparks are on the recall for the steering column. We have been riding them even though they haven't had the recall done. We're planning on riding them till we get ready to put them away for winter. Then have the recall done at the same time. Both of ours have 35+ hours
