    Your budget is good for nothing except headache.

    Realistically, for that budget, try to find something complete. Maybe a pair on a double trailer. Then sink some money LEARNING how to rebuild them...

    I've seen quite a few of these that were heavily corroded. Of course, proper maintenance is the key to making anything last. But I think the issue is that this exhaust system requires more than...

    For a $1000 I would forget fast, you'll be lucky to find something that isn't a total POS and actually runs reliability enough where you're not scared to go a mile away from the dock.

    The 11 year old OEM supercharger shaft with aftermarket compressor wheel failed at nearly 9000 RPM and 94 mph? That seems to be impressive more than disappointing.

    OEM is handling what it's designed to do. If aftermarket can't keep up, you may need to ask what you're really trying to accomplish. Anyone running over 94MPH is not recreationally riding their ski,...

    Loosen the winch and slide the whole winch tower back away from the ski. Adjust the bow roller so it sits in the same position on the hull where it’s shown now. What you are trying to achieve is...

    I would suggest you take a 2-place trailer and just re-arrange the inboard bunks to flip so you can haul one machine in the middle. Add a winch up front in the middle. Seems like a lot less work.

    My view is that a battery load test can condemn a battery as marginal or bad.

    But a simple battery load test does not necessarily prove a battery is good. A good test result just reduces the odds...

    Yes, that is a vent hose and should be up high somewhere....maybe around the steering area. Also I see grey fuel lines. If those are original that GTX needs a fual system overhaul.
