    Since my wife does upholstery for a living I thought I’d chime in. She has a BEA brand stapler that shoots standard #7 staples. The legs of the staples are 22 ga so they go in much easier and do less...

    Thanks for the quick reply. I'd really like the factory fitting since my carbs haven't been drilled on, but I may just have to see what I can dig up from a hardware store.

    So ended up deciding to rejet and drill holes in my stock airbox for now. Got delayed on ordering parts, but they should be here soon.

    Butterbean, did you do the jetworks mod yet?
  8. Hey Jeff, thanks for the reply! I think I am...

    Hey Jeff, thanks for the reply! I think I am going to do just that, drill holes and rejet. I have no intention of modifying the engine, so I'm sure holes will work for me.

    Hey butter. Did you get the holeshot kit installed on your GPR? I have not had a chance to even ride my ski, much less rejet....been crazy around here!

    Id like to do f/a's and rejet, but I'm worried fuel usage will go up. Every time I go out I'm using 11 to 16 gallons of gas, and I like to go out 3 to 4 times a week. We live on a good sized lake and...

    Id start with the easy stuff.
    Position the ski where you can look into the intake grate. If there is an obstruction you should be able to see it. This is the best way to see your impeller without...

    I may try to figure out which section to...

    So I adjusted the low speed screws to 1 1/4 out, and the highs to 1 1/2. No change out of the hole. At all. Ski will not rev past 5600 (according to stock gauge) until it's on plane, then will run...

    Well, I got the motor torn apart and cylinders off. 2 of my base gaskets were installed incorrectly! DOH! I should have it back together in a couple hours. Will post update tomorrow when I fire it.

    Once torqued, do you like to let the assembly sit for any period of time? Like you would the crankcase?
