  2. Tigershark monte carlo 1000 , nightmare, HELP!

    Probably need to find a. Tiger shark owners group or similar they were never very popular and pulled out years ago, parts may be impossible to find. alan at jet shed in Sheffield might be able to help.... good luck, hope you didn’t pay much for it .....
  3. dropped cleaning pad

    Hoover with a short length of hose pipe tapped on the end works well for fetching stuff out from under the motor if it’s soft it likely won’t do any damage and will pop out at some point after a good ride...
  4. Line One distribution https://www.lineonedist.co.uk/ n&c jetski https://www.ncjetski.co.uk/ avos watersports den http://www.avoswatersportsden.co.uk/ fosse hill https://www.fossehill.co.uk/watersports-shop gliddon marine https://www.yamaha-waverunner.co/ greenhulk http://partsfinder.onlinemicrofiche.com/4tec/showmodel.asp?make=yamahapwc very good for finding part numbers
  5. Before you do anything or hand over any cash speak to Alan at jet shed in Sheffield if the craft was free and and you wanted to throw a load of time and cash at it it might be worthwhile considering.... http://www.boats.com/sea-doo-1999/#.WtOVG1rTWf0 its an almost 20 year old ski thats been abused greenhulk is the best place to start and find out exactly what motor it is parts may be hard or impossible to find
  6. Dry suit recommendations

    Pay extra for one with a piss flap wetsuitoutlet are great with returns as it might take a few tries to get one that fits well
  7. Mr

    No water mean no cooling so could be over heating..... what about when it’s on a flush pipe? Does water come from telltale then? plug it in to YDS for diagnostics (£80 on ebay ) might get a code off the dash by pressing both buttons at same time https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F151117934952

  10. Newbie with yamaha gp 800 saying hello

    Ok if you feel the cold don’t mess about get a dry suit, get a good one! With a piss flap being too warm is an easier problem to solve than too cold.... i have just come from a ride in feb (forget summer) it was a range of shorty wetsuits (nutter), thin wetsuits to full drysuit with under fleece an thermals were worn....... gloves hats and helmets too! Get out on the water time and tide wait for no man.........

    Nice ski, enjoy, do the rya course and join a club to get some experience a few round that way. Insurance is a must. the 800 motor is pretty reliable get the power valves checked upgrade with clips as they can break and cause damage. Also consider running ore mix if the oil pump fail the motor blows up if you pre mix no risk of failure. Might already be done find out! all skis need work from time to time hopefully your is a good one and not in need of major work. Guess you haven’t had it running under load on a lake or sea to water test it.....

    Oh the corner mouldings they weren’t originally painted from factory just black plastic and they do fade mine are greyish now i sent a message to one of the chaps who uses Hartlepool (he said more the merrier) so he should get in touch or join greenhulk and find him there norhibg beats riding with experienced skiers to improve your skills and confidence RYA course is a good day out if you haven’t done it a good place to start

    Shark fins? You’d hate mine........ ski ocd seems common in the north east.... ski will charge battery when running is yours a yuasa yb16cl-b check water level and top up as required (that’s the oem spec) when they get a few years old they need replacing mine will be replaced this year as I’m needing to charge it regularly before I ride. worth getting the diagnostic software YDS1.33 under £100 on eBay https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F183047492312
