I don't know about you guys but I, sick of people bashing the spark bc of the recall.. Get over it. These machines are awesome and money well spent. I have 30 hours on mine and couldn't be happier. Be thankful they recalled them... Not the end of the world

100% agreed. I have 35 hours between my 2 sparks. Would have more, but opne was down with faulty start switch.

Even with recall, and the fact that both sparks I have have had or need warranty repairs, I am thrilled with how fun these things are. It helps that sea doo stands behind them, and my dealer is great.

Also, people posting their exact same 'Cut n Paste' complaints into multiple threads. When you're trying to read the site, this is really annoying.

The Spark is certainly a budget ski compared to others, but it has got immense bang for buck.

Love it.

If Sea-Doo hadn't recalled the bars, all the haters would be complaining about that!

I understand complaining, I am guilty of that when I heard a couple of things when I just bought it but I also had like 400 post's before it happened, actually rode the ski and had a blast!
Where is THOR and his hammer when you need it!!!!

19hrs and a recall notice BUT I am still riding in the summer and having fun!

Had the recall done yesterday- Note_ They leave your same handlebar cover and same grips so it appears nothing is different except the quality of the Plastic.
30 hours and another long trip on the river shortly!!!

There's nothing wrong with complaining.. I just take issue with people who do nothing but complain.

I just don't get it. I've had minor little issues come up but most of the care my fault but I just deal with them . I'm proud of BRP for standing behind the machines. I have even mor confidence than before

I think people just forget what the spark is all about, it might be worth it to question the knowledge of those bashing on the spark, there will always be haters.

They complain because their personality requires them to take their purchased new vehicle to the dealer for every squeek, groan, scratch, etc while under warranty. Their personality does not allow them to overlook these things even if the warranty work they want performed doesn't directly hamper the use of their equipment. This take a lot of time and effort from their busy lives...so when a real problem does show up or a recall notice pops up.....well, its just the last Jenga piece that got pulled and with great frustation they vent on forums where they believe people will read and heed their diatribe.

...they also will leave one star reviews which results in them being black listed as a trouble customer.

Such said person we are mentioning is the type that no matter what is done, such said person will ALWAY"S whine. Same person that goes to a restraunt to eat and will always find something wrong with the meal or service and then ask for a discount when the check comes. Have the mindset that it's all about ME and no one else.

I think all the bashers might be right . Im selling my sparks. Let me know what other brands have a sub 400 pound reasonably priced pwc. It must also use less than 2 gallon of fuel per hour and have replaceable hull parts . It also has to be just as fun and easy to throw around as the pwc from the 90's. It must be able to drift and do tailstands . Should any major safety issues crop up the parts must be recalled and replaced by the manufacturer free of charge.

Please list all other machines that meet these requirements so I can ditch these horrible death machines ASAP. Hurry the bodies are piling up.......

Bashing the Spark

I agree with Rthonb about people bashing the Spark. Yes it has some flaws, like having to remove the entire upper shell to get to the engine to do any type of maintenance. Yes it’s been recalled, but at least BRP is recalling them vice just ignoring the problem hoping it was just a few instances and not a real problem. But they are spending a lot of money to recall ALL sparks when it comes to the handle bars. Plus I’ve heard about a wire harness issue shorting out and the LH side panel not providing the water seal as manufactured. The Spark is not a Cadillac and you shouldn’t expect it to ride or last like one. They are not made to go out on an ocean with 2-3 foot waves. They can take some banging, but not a lot and not too long. These machines were developed to enhance riders who normally wouldn’t think about buying a jet ski because of high prices to buy a lower price Spark. So everyone quit your whining, go ride, take it easy, be safe and take care of it maintenance wise and these machines should last many summers.

I have mine in the ocean next to the beach jumping 5' foot waves. and she takes it like a champ and actually performs quite well. In heavy chop you can't go that quick because it's so light it doesn't ram through the chop like it's bigger siblings it bounces of of them if you don't time it right and can get pretty squirrley. There are tons of jetskis by me and all I ever see them do is go in straight lines as fast as they can then turn abound and do it again. I love tailstands, drifting , and spinning it out. I am extremely happy with this machine

One complaint I do have is the other skis have a thumb throttle. When I'm in choppy water I have lost my balance and twice fell off of the ski but instinct tells me to hang on so I'm laying in the water next to the ski and my body weight is on the throttle lmao. First time it took a second to realize I should let go because I'm wide open throttle lol

I've done this on the rental. Hit a wave and squeezed the throttle. After that I slid my hand to the right more and working on releasing the trigger finger independently.

Video or it didn't happen.

Seriously though, I'd love to see some if you have it.
