• Intake and exhaust valve lift, as well as cam timing, are optimized to reduce exhaust emissions
• Large capacity airbox cuts down engine noise and provides good air intake flow
• Intake tract designed for maximum performance
• Digital fuel injection provides great throttle response, smooth engine performance, quick acceleration, easy starting and excellent fuel economy
• Tip-over protection shuts engine off if craft tilts more than 61 degrees
• Waterproofed ECU and ignition coils protect the ignition system from electrical shorts
• Unique semi-dry sump oil system lowers the crankshaft in the engine, eliminates the need for scavenging pumps, and keeps the oil from flooding the crankcase if the craft is capsized
• Kawasaki’s patented oil separator provides fail-safe venting for the crankcase and prevents oil from flowing into the intake tract if the craft is capsized
• Has earned a Three-Star Ultra-Low Emissions rating, meets the Environmental Protection Agency’s strictest standards, as well as the California Air Resources Board’s standards *Horsepower measured in PS at the crankshaft under controlled conditions. Actual performance may vary.

Steering System
• Kawasaki Smart Steering® (KSS®) monitors steering input and engine speed and, when certain conditions are met, raises rpm to give enough thrust to maneuver
• Reverse bucket is designed for more precise direction control when backing and is made of injection molded material to prevent corrosion
• Reverse increases maneuverability in tight places

Composite Hull
• Hull size is optimized for a sporty and nimble ride
• Injection-molded sponsons deliver ultra-responsive turning, while enhancing tracking
• Durable three-blade oval-edge stainless steel impeller provides maximum efficiency
• Shielded jet propulsion system offers greater protection from damage
• Kawasaki Splash Deflector (KSD) helps keep spray off the operator and passenger
• Boarding step retracts automatically and eases boarding in deep water
• Large capacity fuel tank allows more time on the water

Deck
• Integrated storage compartments offer the largest storage capacity in its class
• Stylish hatch cover keeps with muscular look
• Handle position makes aggressive “stand-up” riding easier and provides ample room for a wide range of riders
• Spacious, close-to-the-water open rear deck provides plenty of room for putting on skis or a wakeboard and easy deep water boarding

Kawasaki Jet Ski STX 2010 Watercraft Review

Posted onJune 27, 2011

The JET SKI® STX® packs nearly 40 years of Kawasaki JET SKI and Ninja® performance know-how into a highly advanced, ruggedly reliable craft that delivers an unbeatable performance-to-price ratio. Though it leaves off a few non-essential items to keep the price down, the STX is still packed with all sorts of good things, like Smart Learning Operation (SLO), Kawasaki Smart Steering® (KSS®) and, oh yeah – a 1498cc four-stroke four-cylinder engine that’ll leave other PWCs in its price range sucking wake. Big power and great handling are definitely part of the package.

Safety and Reliability

• Tip-over protection shuts engine off if craft tilts more than 61°
• Smart learning Operation (SLO) mode limits maximum engine speed, when the SLO key is used
• Waterproofed ECU and ignition coils protects the ignition system from electrical shorts
• Unique semi-dry sump oil system lowers the crankshaft in the engine, eliminates the need for scavenging pumps, and keeps the oil from flooding the crankcase if the craft is capsized
• Kawasaki’s patented oil separator provides fail-safe venting for the crankcase and prevents oil from flowing into the intake tract if the craft is capsized
• Shielded jet propulsion system offers greater protection from damage


1,498cc Engine

• Four-stroke engine provides incredibly strong low

Yamaha SuperJet 2011 Review

Posted onJune 21, 2011

The Powerplant

The SuperJet™ is powered by a high-performance, two-cylinder, 701cc Yamaha marine engine. Two 38mm Mikuni® carburetors feed this world-class powerplant, providing excellent throttle response throughout the total RPM range.
Yamaha Loop-charged Combustion: Fuel mixture actually loops as it enters the combustion chamber, which helps distribute fuel/air mixture evenly for better combustion, performance and fuel economy.
Corrosion Protection System: Sacrificial zinc anodes protect the engine from harmful galvanic corrosion. Stainless steel fasteners (nuts, bolts, hardware) provide a long service life. Cylinders, cases and heads are all treated with a durable oxide coating to form a barrier between corrosion and expensive engine parts.
Electronically Controlled, Variable Ignition Timing: For exact ignition advance control at all throttle positions and RPMs.

The Jet Pump Propulsion System 

The SuperJet 144mm Hyper-Flow jet pump propulsion system: The new three-blade stainless steel progressive pitch impeller is designed to maximize water flow for high performance. The SuperJet pump configuration provides excellent hook-up and smooth acceleration.
Stainless Steel Impeller Housing Liner: For high durability, the liner maintains accurate clearance tolerances between the impeller and the housing.
High Flow Intake Duct and Grate: The dynamic shape of these items directs water flow into the pump for better thrust, performance and hook-up.
Pumps are Manufactured with YDC30: A combination of zinc and copper alloys, developed by Yamaha marine engineers, that offers excellent corrosion protection.

The Hull and Deck

Perfectly balanced for hard cornering and wide-open straight-aways, the newly designed SuperJet hull features molded-in sponsons positioned forward on the craft that increase the wetted surface area of the hull. This allows the craft to turn easier while making the SuperJet more stable for novice and intermediate level riders.
High-performance, Concave Hull: The lightweight, concave hull design of the SuperJet provides superior grip and agility on the tight turns and allows a true feeling of adhesion to the water’s surface.
Environmentally-minded Innovations: By employing proven technologies, Yamaha delivers significant reductions in noise levels without compromising performance and reliability. These technologies include the Yamaha Sound Suppression System This system of integrated noise reduction components targets the three common types of noise: 1.) intake noise, 2.) exhaust noise and 3.) noise from vibration.

Additional Features:

Oval-shaped Handlepole: This handlepole design is 40 percent lighter and 50 percent stronger than conventional handlepoles and its high pivot position gives the rider more leverage for easier transitions and turning.
Corrosion Resistant Coil Spring: Makes the handlepole feel lighter for optimal control and reduces rider fatigue.
Thickly Padded Ride Tray: Padding is provided on the deck, gunwales and handlepole for a more comfortable ride.
Kick Step: Provides riders with a slip resistant surface and added balance.
Automatic Bilge System: Removes water from the engine compartment.
Transom Exhaust System: Adds performance while reducing noise levels.
Adjustable Steering System: Allows the rider to adjust the steering nozzle angle and turning performance.
Yamaha’s Trademarked Visibility Spout®: A waterspout from the rear of the craft that improves the craft’s conspicuity.
