If you own a Sea Doo Spark, you know how much fun it can be to ride. However, if you've ever had issues with your impeller, you know how frustrating it can be. Fortunately, Jet Ski Parts can help repair your impeller and provide polishing with a quick turnaround time.
The impeller is an important part of your Sea Doo Spark's propulsion system. It is responsible for drawing water into the jet pump and then expelling it out the back of the watercraft, which propels the Spark forward. If your impeller is damaged or not working properly, your Sea Doo Spark will not perform as it should.
Jet Ski Parts .biz offers impeller repair services for the Sea Doo Spark. We have experienced technicians who can diagnose the problem and make any necessary repairs quickly and efficiently. Our team can also polish your impeller, which not only enhances its appearance but also improves its performance.
Polishing your impeller can help reduce drag and increase efficiency. A polished impeller will have a smoother surface, which means that water can flow more easily over it. This reduces the amount of drag on the impeller, which in turn increases the speed and acceleration of your Sea Doo Spark.
At Jet Ski Parts .biz, we understand that you want to get back on the water as soon as possible. That's why we offer a quick turnaround time for impeller repairs and polishing. We have a large inventory of parts and can often complete repairs and polishing in just a few days.
In addition to impeller repair and polishing, Jet Ski Parts .biz offers a wide range of services for Sea Doo Sparks and other personal watercraft. We can perform routine maintenance, such as oil changes and tune-ups, as well as more complex repairs. We also offer performance upgrades and customizations to help you get the most out of your Sea Doo Spark.
If you're experiencing issues with your Sea Doo Spark impeller, don't wait to get it repaired. Contact Jet Ski Parts .biz today to schedule a service appointment. With our expert technicians and quick turnaround time, we can have your Sea Doo Spark back on the water in no time.

A Look Back 2003: Kawasaki JET SKI® Watercraft Racers Close the 2003 Season With 20 Titles at the IJSBA World Finals and Kings Cup
Kawasaki, known for its high-performance JET SKI® watercraft, dominated this year’s International Jet Sports Boating Association (IJSBA) World Finals in Lake Havasu City, Arizona and Kings Cup in Thaihland. With a final tally of 20 championships, 2003 marked another fantastic year of racing for Kawasaki.The company’s factory-support riders swept the top pro classes with two world championship trophies. Dustin Farthing grabbed the gold in Pro Runabout 1200 on his JET SKI 1200 STX-R® watercraft, and teammate Steven Dauliach raced his JET SKI 800 SX-R to victory in Pro Ski at World Finals. On the otherside of the world Jeff Jacobs Raced his 800SX-R and Dustin Farthing his STXR to Kings Cup Champions. Another 16 trophies were handed out to Kawasaki riders winning world and national titles in amateur, novice, expert, masters and women’s classes. The races took place World finals October 5 to October 12 and Kings Cup Dec 6.
"This was an incredibly exciting year of racing for Kawasaki," said Steve Fischer, product manager, Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. "We took home twice as many championships as any other manufacturer, and we’re very proud of that accomplishment."
On the heels of these world and national championship titles, Kawasaki announced the release of another high-performance JET SKI watercraft with exceptional acceleration and incredible handling – the JET SKI STX™-15F. This leading-edge, four-stroke runabout will hit dealerships as early as Spring 2004 and is expected to be a favorite among those with a "need for speed."

Can't wait for summer

The Kawasaki JET SKI® STX®-15F watercraft is the ultimate expression of power, performance and leading-edge technology in the personal watercraft world, and the reason is simple: the brand responsible for building some of the most powerful motorcycles on earth is the same brand that introduced the JET SKI name to the world more than 30 years ago.
A high-performance engine from the legendary Kawasaki Ninja® motorcycle line provided the starting point for this dominant JET SKI model. While the bore is the same as that of the smaller JET SKI STX-12F, the stroke is 13.8mm longer, increasing displacement to 1,498cc. This long stroke design delivers a flat torque curve for a smooth spread of power across the entire rpm range. Dual overhead cams, four valves per cylinder, fuel injection and electronic engine control, which harmonizes the fuel and ignition systems, provide maximum performance and reliability. Plus, the fuel injection system utilizes four injectors and a large 60mm throttle body to deliver a quick response. Even with such high-performance attributes, the STX-15F has earned a Three-Star Ultra-Low Emissions rating, meeting the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) strictest standards, as well as the California Air Resources Board (CARB) standards for 2008. The four-stroke engine is rubber-mounted in the hull and includes a water-jacketed, performance-tuned exhaust system, dual mufflers and large-capacity airbox.
The STX-15F utilizes a direct drive axial-flow jet pump connected to an oval-edge, stainless steel, three-blade impeller and an 82mm jet pump nozzle for powerful acceleration. Equally important, the STX-15F engine produces its peak power at a relatively low rpm while matching the impeller’s peak efficiency rpm, thus eliminating the need for a complicated gear reduction unit. The result is improved durability, reduced vibration and noise, and improved fuel economy.
The STX-15F is also equipped with Kawasaki Smart Steering®(KSS® ). KSS features a steering sensor that is electronically linked to an on-board microprocessor. If the handlebar is fully turned in either direction and the engine rpm drops from a designated rpm, such as when the throttle is released at speed, the microprocessor activates the KSS, which raises engine rpm to provide enough thrust to initiate the desired turn. Assisting with low-speed maneuvering is a reverse bucket that is shaped to deliver optimum thrust for more precise direction control when backing, and the bucket is injection molded to eliminate corrosion.
he STX-15F also features Kawasaki’s innovative electronic Smart Learning Operation (SLO). Accessible directly on the instrument panel, SLO can be programmed to place a limit on maximum engine speed so novice riders can experience riding at a reduced speed while they master proper riding techniques.
Aggressive turning and high-speed stability are key performance attributes of the STX-15F. Injection-molded sponsons designed specifically for the STX-15F feature a special “lip” for increased cornering grip and high-speed stability. The hull also features a molded-in Kawasaki Splash Deflector (KSD) to help minimize spray on the rider.With its muscular, aggressive look, the STX-15F is lighter and more compact than the competition, yet Kawasaki engineers have created a spacious riding position that makes aggressive performance riding easier and suits a wider range of riders.
The stylish hatch cover is constructed from ABS plastic, adding to the fresh, high-quality styling of the STX-15F, and a hydraulic damper holds the hatch cover open, allowing easy access until the rider closes it. The mirrors are also made of ABS plastic and are mounted directly to the deck, adding to the sleek lines
The open rear deck of the STX-15F features abundant space for getting into water skis or a wakeboard, and reboarding in deep water is simplified with the automatically retracting boarding step located at the rear of the hull. The rear deck can also accommodate a cooler or other items needed for a day on the water. Other features include a water-resistant storage space, an easily accessible glove box and additional storage space located under the seat.
For extended rides, fuel capacity is a generous 16.4 gallons. Other features include a LCD instrument panel so the rider can monitor the fuel level, speed, engine rpm, trip distance and time. Warning lamps alert the rider to low fuel level or high engine temperature, and a magnetic keyed ignition switch helps deter unauthorized operation.

START EARLEY: “It’s a good idea to get your ski out of storage a little early and start it up. If you’re taking it to a dealer to be summarized or get some repairs, try to do it before the summer, when dealers tend to get overwhelmed.
WARM UP: Coax your PWC out of hibernation. If you stored your Jet Ski with some fuel in the tank and did not use a fuel stabilizer, condition the fuel by adding a conditioner like Pennzoil’s Fuel System Cleaner and Stabilizer. However, if you experience a no start and the fuel seems stale, then take your pwc to a qualified technician where trained technicians are equipped to drain and dispose of fuel.
MAINTAIN LUBRICATIONS: If you own a 4 Stroke engine, and didn’t do it last fall, now’s a good time to change the engine oil and filter, and drain and replace pump oil. You will also want to add grease to all grease fittings to keep bearings and seals lubed. For those of you who own 2 strokes, top off the oil reserve with fresh two-cycle oil, then drain and replace pump oil. You would want to grease fittings too.
SECURE LOOSE ENDS: Check for loose wires. Check throttle and trim cables to make sure they work properly.
CHARGE YOUR BATTERY: Charge and reinstall the battery.
These tip will help you get a good start to summer fun.

Know The Watercraft Rules On The Water
Know The Rules.
Personal watercraft (PWCs) are targets for new laws and restrictions. The best way to change the PWC “bad-boy” image is to respect other boaters around you by following the laws. Start by knowing the “Rules of the Road,” a code that every boater is legally required to follow. Not only are there safety requirements, but the rules also extend into the realm of boating etiquette. They tell you how to signal and pass other vessels, which boat has the right of way, and how to read aids to navigation. Chances are your state has its own set of PWC rules. For instance, Rhode Island requires state residents to have a PWC license in order to promote safe, courteous riding. There are also local rules concerning PWC operation.
Know Your Machine.
Depending on how much noise and smoke they emit, some watercraft are considered “ruder” than others — old carbureted 2-strokes are considered the height of rudeness. If you’re one of the majority of riders using a carbureted 2-stroke PWC, the key is to keep your watercraft well-maintained for minimal smoke emission (there’s probably not much you can do about noise). Manufacturers have been addressing both smoke and noise pollution with a new breed of low-decibel 4-strokes. The good news is that within a few years, carbureted technology will be a thing of the past, so many of the big complaints against PWCs will go up in smoke.
You also need to develop your own riding skills to promote safety and courtesy. They include learning to use the throttle and steering properly (many beginners let go of the throttle when they’re heading at another boat or obstacle, thus losing steerage), practicing high-speed stopping and steering maneuvers, and scanning the horizon constantly for other boats. This includes common-sense maneuvers like slowing down or avoiding anchored boats, not waking or splashing other boaters, and not doing hour-long doughnuts in front of other boats or waterfront homes. The key is to be aware of others while on the water. Accidents can happen in the blink of an eye.
Know The Area.
Besides being polite to other boaters, there are real and perceived problems associated with PWC and habitat destruction. In fact, that was one of the main arguments for PWC bans in national parks last summer. A little awareness for environmental concerns can go a long way. So, stay clear of nesting grounds and fragile ecosystems. Also, keep your eyes posted for swimmers. Areas around coves and docks can fill up quickly with people who might want to take a dip, so before you decide to gun it, scan the area for potential problems. As far as the wakes go, just apply the golden rule of PWCs — splash unto others as you would like them to splash unto you.
