Default I bought a used Sea Doo Spark most fuel efficient Jet ski on the water

I bought a used Sea Doo Spark 3up HO IBR
The configuration is 3 person 90 Horse power Intelligent Brake and Reverse system.

This is the most fuel efficient Jet ski on the water. It is a 4 stroke 3 cylinder motor. They list them at WOT wide open throttle it uses 2.4 GPH and the 60 HP version uses 1.94GPH
My old 1996 sea doo XP uses 12.5 GPH WOT this is a big difference.

It is has new plastic body and the top just unbolts so you can work on it.

This is the only Jet Ski that does that. It is 420 pounds this is not very heavy for a jet ski.



This is mine I drove to Tennessee 3 hours one way to get it because I did not want to spend as much money as they want around here for it.

Very nice!!! I love the amount of power in such a small engine. Reminds me of a time I went to a import shop and they had this smaller engine out of the car working on it and I asked how many HP it was, it was 900 HP! With 875 lbs of torque, of course the twin turbos where not hooked up at the time. I would kill myself on a jet ski. lol

Thanks, my boys both took the boater safety course. Now they can ride it alone. They are having a great time on it. It is better for them than my old 96 XP ski. Plus they would eat up way to much gas with that one.

They have a turbo kit for this ski but I won’t be putting it on my ski. This motor is also used in their snowmobiles.

I got a nice surprise letter from BRP (Sea Doo) today.
When I bought my Spark I was told no warranty as is. You know the deal.

Well today I got a letter from BRP that the extended protection plan was transferred to me.

The BEST will expired May 8 2018 $50 deductible.
That was a very nice surprise.
