    No. I am fairly new to the area. Just finished a restoration on an old 550. If any wavejunkies are out there hit me up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I might make my way out to WD this year. Where does everyone park? I am hauling my pile in on a small trailer.

    Exceed/Hot Products Cast Aluminum Finger Throttle - Black 58-0971 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005UGJ3FC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_s61xzbRZWARAZ Had to cut the bottom out to feed the cable through. It did give me more leverage on the cable allowing the carb to fully open. Sent from my iPhone using...

    I forgot to post the pic of the new double rings in the first post, but you can pull up the pic. At this point I had already bought a new home, got a dog, and there were a lot of changes going on in life. This is why is took me almost two years to complete the build. Here is some more progress...

The ski is a 1984 JS550, bone stock with great compression when I received it almost 2 years ago. I was out riding the rivers when a...
