    That is how it worked out. If was going to start over I probably would be better off contracting for a custom built frame and plan everything more carefully.

    As it was, the requirements evolved as...

    I had to replace the OEM axles on my WC2-2 in order to fit the 10 inch integrated disc brake hubs I wanted to use.

    During the year I had the original factory axles, I had no issues with them. Rode...

    The WC2-2 models with factory brakes are rated for 4000 pounds.

    Same frame and so on, just without the just-under-3000-pounds sticker.

    The dual axles are 2000 pound rated each IIRC, even on...

    Not disagreeing. As speeds increase the potential downsides escalate should something go wrong.

    Whether that be a trailer problem (tire problem, bearing failure, load shift, loose bolt, whatever),...

    I did add-on/extend the frame structure forward of the original frame Y and added a flat deck area. Made the trailer a bit longer but really changed how we can make use of it.

    Not only can I...

    I agree that the Stoltz bow rollers and Boat Buckles (I use the G2 2” wide strap, stainless steel version) are good upgrades over the factory supplied parts.

    I will say that having brakes on a trailer adds not only to the upfront purchase costs but also there is additional ongoing maintenance. Brakes need to be serviced, maintained and checked.

    Regulations in my region do not require trailer brakes unless the trailer total weight exceeds about 2,800 pounds. And a breakaway emergency breakaway tether is required to activate those trailer...

    I have owned a Triton WC2-2 since 2017. I have since made many modifications, but the aspect I was most disappointed with was the factory brakes.

    It was delivered with drum brakes on only one axle...

    On a non-supercharged Yamaha HO engine I don’t think there is much downside to just keeping the crankcase ventilation stock.

    There is no intercooler to contaminate and there is less piston blowby...

    Rental PWC tend to be power reduced. Not only are they generally the smallest engine available in that model, often the ECU tune is set to further limit engine power. And the engine in that rental...

    Look for M speed rated ST tires. That will narrow the number of options you will find in the tire size(s) you are looking for.

    Very few ‘made in USA’ ST trailer tires, even for brands that make...

    I suggest you need to test ride a GP1800R. These things are very different from the 2-stroke PWC of thirty years ago.

    Those old carburetor 2-stroke engines often needed frequent throttle blips to...

    What exactly do you mean by ‘revving like a 2-stroke’?

    Why are you looking at the GP1800R instead of the smaller and more toss-able Yamaha JetBlaster (formerly the EXR)

    In general, a trailer can do the distance.

    How reliable and trouble-free mostly depends on trailer age and trailer maintenance.

    I would recommend installing the largest diameter new tires that...
