    Picked this up. Anyone know what I have?

    Is the dual cooling stock? The p.o. bypassed the thermostat, I'm wondering if the blocked line is a problem. I'll probably tee it off to the right pisser and block the fuel drain. Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk

    So looks like the PO used a bolt from lowes for the flywheel? Hope it holds! I ended up shaving it waaay down and also shaved the oil injection plate. I also had to move my filler nozzle back as well. Turns out actually installing parts takes up alot more from than I figured from eyeballing it...

    Yes, they're sharp. Being at the base of the pole, when would my knees and shins come into contact? Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk

    Made a gas cap cover... used some random brackets from the teardown. It ain't pretty, but it will do I'm just about sick of sanding fiberglass. Lol. Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk

    If I ride without a lanyard, even in the surf and it idles when I fall of would it still be a bother? Ive rolled it a few times and it never turned off. The surf here in Texas is really pretty minimal. Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk

    Alot of good info I appreciate hearing from someone who has been there done that! Did you run the pipe dry? I can't imagine running it at full throttle and then coming off plane to jump or stunt would lead to water ingestion. I've been wondering about creating a high point in the exhaust...

    Got tired of sanding. So I just shot it with primer, I'll bondo all the ugly spots. I think ill have a little texture for the base coat to hide the imperfections and help negate scratches. Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk

    Picked this up. Anyone know what I have?

    I think it's a stock 1994 but I don't know which model. Can anyone take a look and verify for me? Also i ran it on the hose for 5 minutes with plenty of water and the back right of the hull, like the deck and sidewall was surprisingly warm. Is this normal? Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk

    Tonight I lined the nose and muffler with plastic and filled the voids with foam. Then I put more plastic and foam and dropped in the gas tank. Hopefully it all comes out and I have a modular system I can get in and out easily. I ground off all of the mounting brackets and braces when I was...

    Broke out the saw. 650 shorten/ lighten

    To glass over the pipe bulge I put 3 layers of rags on the pipe and covered them with plastic, taped it to the pipe and installed it. Then I did one layer of glass over the shape the pipe made with the rags on it. Then I did 4 layers of glass on the outside and 2 on the inside. While It was on...

    My main concern was making the ski smaller to store and transport, plus I just like messing around with learning new things and seeing what I'm capable of. I had assumed it would porpoise like crazy, but I've never ridden anything so modified. Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk

    You mean you don't think the 650 will do? I never thought about that. Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk

    For those unfamiliar the process of fitting a pipe is beating it with a hammer and cutting your hull back open... As for the suits... it's like 100 degrees in my garage. I'd rather deal with the itching. Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk
