Share what you did today with the Seadoo Spark community!

Example: Change the impeller and wear ring in the garage today.

Example: Cracked open a cold one and just stared at her... NOT! I took her out or a ride and went all out!

Example: Cleaned off all the water spots.

Anything goes....

Seems like a waste
Feels like it. First issue was the recalls, then had an extremely heavy workload in august plus weather wasn't helping. Being in New Jersey, warm weather didn't last long especially since it was an extremely mild summer, often cold on the water. It didn't start getting warm until recently and I focus a lot on my schooling. Spending 3 days a week there, then being at work the rest, there's no time for the ski. I had a chance last week. Got down the shore and girlfriend left the keys up north so killed that chance. I'm looking to sell since I literally have no time to ride it.

My dealer said all the 2015 models have had hull scratches. Mine were pretty bad . so I bought it and rode it 3 months waiting for the new hulls to come to oz. The dealer is a friend we stripped it out and put it in the new hull. The new hull is a lot smoother on the bottom. And no scratches . also top speed is now 91km/hr . so I'm really happy. Been raining a bit here but mainly dry and slight offshore winds. Makes for good days out on the head. Almost pulled my wetsuit on yesterday. lol.

5 km/hr less? Did you change the prop aswell? If you dont have IBR the speed os based on the rpms. The new ss ring probably reduced cavitation, wich reduces rpm and (if you dont have IBR) therefore reducing speed on the display. With IBR the sparks gets a gps, so then the speed is based on that.

I've had my spark for two weeks probably already have 20 hours on it. Installed the VTS kit right after my first trip out. (Super easy even for the most novice of mechanics or Do-it-Yourselfer) Have to say it was well worth the $200 kind of disappointed SeaDoo didn't make it a stock feature but never the less it made the already very agile spark much more enjoyable. Brought it to the lake this morning and could only go a snails pace at full throttle.... Two hours and a trip to the nearest BRP dealer for parts later I had the new wear ring installed and back getting wet! I am disappointed to hear all of the backlash on the spark but I would say SeaDoo hit the nail on the head with this one. Coming from a Motorcross background it's refreshing to be able to get out on the water and throw around a unit and not be at the mercy of the machine like you are on the bigger glass boats. More than pleased with my purchase and will definitely be picking up another one shortly for the wife.

Spark Stereo installation. I installed a Boss 500W Bluetooth Amp with (2) 6.5" & (2) 5.25" speakers. NO thru-hull cutting. Very loud, low battery drain, all waterproof. Love it. 11 hours on the lake today with no issues.
