Hi everyone im vinny and im new to this forum and want to give a big thanks to whoever started this site because i believe its going to be very helpful for me.
I live on long island and i only ride salt water and i love hitting waves with my spark, its what i think about all week at work lol.

i just was looking for some pointers of what i should be keeping my eye on with my new spark.
so far i have replaced the wear ring, my old one is still in good condition, plan on keeping it as a pack up just in case something happens but from what ive heard people were going thru them with in the first 2 hours. i installed my self the riva wear ring and only took me 10 mins, due to i do not have the ibr or reverse, honestly dont see the need for those features being ive been riding skis since i was little without either option
I have little over 8 hours on my ski and ive been thinking of changing the oil after the first 15 its says after 50 but i think that's bs and i see people talking about a wire that rubs on the motor and causes you to blow a fuse come someone give me more info about that wire.
also when i wave jump im pretty wreck less and i honestly don't feel this handle bars are going to last. and im starting to hear a lil squeak in my handle bars.

i know i kinda rambled on for a bit but i was hoping someone can give me a good list on what i should look out for before im stuck in the ocean... takes me 25 mins to get from the dock i launch out at to the inlet i ride at and that could be a bad day if i cant get back in due to choppy waters

thank you to everyone that reads my thread and helps me out

I learned the most the fastest by reding the manual, once thru , then again flippin' pages next to my Spark for a visual cue. Answered most questions I found posted on here...

Welcome to the forum!

Just do yourself a favor and use the search feature first. If its not there than start a new thread the guys on here are pretty quick to respond and knowledgable.

If you ride aggressively you should check under the white steering cover regularly. I would check out the Worg handle bars soon to be released. Are you on North Shore or South Shore?
