I store my sparks in my garage, and tow them to the ride locations. I am thinking about getting a pair of poppy covers. How easy are these to remove and put back on? I ask because I usually fuel up on the way to a ride location, not on the water, so I am curious how much of a nuisance this will be at the pump.

Hi RunItTwice, I got a Poppy cover for my 3UP.

It stays on with the help of an elastic strap in the bottom of the cover which runs around under the lip of the top deck. It's a quality cover, and I'm pleased with the purchase.

The cover is not too difficult to put on or take off, but these things are all relative. It takes a couple minutes to get it on properly. I've also been uncertain as to how tight the adjustable elastic strap on the bottom of the cover should be. Too tight and it's harder to put on and take off the cover. Too loose, and I'm worried it might come loose on the highway. I think I've found a happy medium.

Personally I've started filling up my spark with gas cans at home instead of stopping at the fuel station, which means I don't have to worry about removing the cover before I get to the water.

I have a Poppy cover for an older Sea Doo. They are very easy to put on and off. The only thing is that you will have to take your back tie down strap off in order to take the cover off as to get the seat off. The stern has to be covered last. If you try to keep the strap and cover on the stern, it will be very hard, if not impossible, to cover the handlebars and bow.

I always trailer my spark covered, I learned my lesson my seadoo speedster, after hard riding hard waves the seats gets lose on the speedster and the seats fly out, ouch it was a $300 - $400 dollar lesson.

Also if you forget to lock your spark seat it'll fly out...

That sucks. I always thought it was a good idea to cover up anything i'm hauling on a trailer, you never know what can happen. or maybe i'm just too paranoid :D
