  1. What intake grate to use? Any other tricks to making it hook up?

    I have an '89 650sx. I finally got some time to ride it this weekend, but it wasn't the smoothest water. I had quite a bit of trouble keeping it hooked up, especially when I wanted to go faster.

    If it were me I'd rebuild them off the bat. I don't have any experience with that particular ski, but in general that is good practice on a used ski with any questionable tuning.

    I'm not sure entirely what you mean.

    For now I have taken the ratchet strap(s) apart, run the strap through the hole, and then put them back together. This works but it's kind of time consuming. ...

    32:1 is too rich. I'm running 40:1, which seems to be the consensus here, but I think that might even be on the rich side. Also, don't run regular outboard oil, run Yamalube or Amsoil.
