Kawasaki, yamaha, and Hydrospace($$$$$) all make 2007 model stand up watercraft. The hydrospace is the only four stroke out of the pack. Yamaha has been selling the Superjet in it's current trim since 1996, and yamaha purists are "hoping" for a new ski this year. kawasaki has been selling this model since 2003, mine being an SXR800A1 model. Too be honest, I feel like a squid on a litrebike while out on the water. This big 2stroke is quick to show me who's boss, but I'm figuring it out(one bruise at a time) I've got my sights set on Delinquents 650sx as well, i just have to find a hull(w/ title) to go with it. Tomorrow is always another day, and i'll be out setting up a bouy course when the sun comes up. Until i can get back on a motorcycle i'll just keep my adrenaline pumping on the water!!!!!!!

Oh! That sounds fun! My parents have (but never use, so its practically mine) a 95 yamaha, but it doesn't have much power at all. TBH im not even sure what model it is.

I never thought that watercraft could be as fun as bikes, but i guess ive never ridden on anything with real power. Now, how do i get my bike to pull a trailer... :confused2

Congrats on your new ride, have fun!

they certainly take some practice. I had one, it was a 750sx. It sure was squirly at WOT and standing up on it, the rear would want to come around on me, steering was very twitch also at WOT. It certainly would hurt to go down at WOT, you should be going around 45-50mph. Kneeling down you can have some fun too.

I learned to "countersteer" my sportbikes early on and have trained my mind to push the bars in the direction i want to turn. This ski is exactly the opposite. . .when i push to the right the ski turns left! I'm getting the hang of it though, every highside i have is another imprinting tool. LOL Thanks for the kind words

remember, On the gas to turn

Also it is hard to tell your brain to do this, but when you are about to fall or loosing your balance during a turn, about to fall over from going to slow or what ever, just give it all the gas its got and straighten the bars. Just hold on and the ski will straighten up and take off. Using the thrust can also do alot to help you recover, if your rolling over you can use the thrust to help strighten the ski back up.
