It won't void the warranty. Infiniti would have to prove you mounting their hitch on a RWD (instead of AWD) caused whatever needs to be repaired under warranty. Its existence alone cannot void the warranty.
Is that a 21'? I would bet it weighs a lot more than 3,500 pounds by the time you add fuel, oil, gear, etc. Keep in mind boat manufacturers are notorious for understating the weights of their boats, and the "hull weight" is often bare bones and dry, meaning no engine, no liquids (oil, gas), extra options, etc.quiksilver55 said:Hey guys. I'm looking at buying a Yamaha AR210 in the near future, expecting to tow/launch it with my FX35 AWD.
I'd say it is too much, especially for liability reasons. No doubt the FX can pull 4200 lbs. but the question is not only stopping the load but also the additional strain on the vehicle and personal liability if you are in an accident while towing.quiksilver55 said:Boat dry weight (with twin jet drives) = 2954lbs
Max fuel capacity (50 gal) = 305lbs
Max oil capacity (9qts) = 16.2lbs
Total weight of boat = 3275.2lbs (plus life jackets/flares/etc)
I'm digging into the actual weight of the trailer right now. If anything, that might be the deal-breaker.
UPDATE: The trailer weighs 980lbs..........hmmm.
So, is 4250lbs too much? Therein lies the issue.
I used to go to the lake years ago with a buddy who had a pair of Wave Runners. He was also a motorcycle/watercraft mechanic. He said the same thing about Sea Doos, said they were crap that would constantly have problems. Yamaha has a few boats which look nice.GJBenn85 said:Having some very negative history with Sea Doo products, I would never recommend Bombardier's crap. Engine repairs will end up costing you more than you can imagine.
