    I'll have to look around. That's exactly what I had in mind. I have a complete 1100 ZXi minus the hull. If the 1100 STX does mid 50's, I'm sure the 1100 SXR would do it too.

    I thought about...

    Very cool... a 3-year-old riding a standup.

    Next project: get a Dodge Challenger HellCat and install a lawn tractor engine for the kid to drive.

    But seriously, where did you get an empty hull? ...

    Boating laws are pretty clear. If two vessels are approaching each other at an angle, the vessel on the right is the stand-on vessel, and the other is the give-way vessel. If it was a T-bone, the...

    Best wave jumper I know owns an FZR, but uses a 1998 GP800 for jumping. He easily gets 20-feet+ off of average NY waves, and even breaks the vertical plane so that the bottom of the ski is facing...

    Owner's manual will tell you how to switch.

    Don't remember the exact sequence, but it's something like this. After the dash shuts off, hit the start button. Then hold down the volt button for a...

    Haven't had the problem with the 1.8 motor. But every time I experienced something similar with the MR-1 motor, it came back to the battery... weak battery or loose or dirty battery cable connectors.

    Can't speak from experience about the SVHO motor. But on the MR-1 motor, I just had to remove the 4 motor mount bolts, then disconnect the exhaust coupling. No hoist was needed. Just slide the...

    Might not be the solution to all of your problems, but the Kawi 1100 sounds like a problem I had years ago with mine. The spark plug wires get frayed at the ends and don't conduct enough juice to...

    New spark plugs.

    Check/tighten cooling hose clamps.

    Pull the jet pump and check the impeller and the pump bearings.

    Pretty sure I was able to finagle it somehow. I remember the harness being a problem and removing the plastic stays from the hull to push it down and out of the way.

    Don't hold me to this, but I'm pretty sure I was able to pull the intake manifold without removing the motor mount bolts.

    The trick was to remove the whole ECU bracket and get it (and the wiring...

    The pipe looks pretty good. If you clean out the grooves and install new rings, you should be OK. The bigger concern would be holes on the top and bottom of the fat part of the pipe end, but your...

    Better hurry. I'm going to run over there and offer $600. That's a steal.

    Ski looks mint. I've never come across one that clean outside of the dealer showroom.

    K has the right answers. Drain the fuel and do an oil/filter change. New spark plugs are probably a good...

    If you're only running it once a month, that might be the cause of your problem. A month is enough time for corrosion to start forming on the valves. A few minutes of running cleans them up.

    The liner is a relatively thin piece of stainless steel, so there's not a whole lot of material there for machining. I've been able to grind down high spots to get some more life from a pump, but...

    Hard to tell from your pics, but the impeller doesn't look that bad. Those dings on the edges are more likely to cause vibration than a significant loss of speed. You can clean the impeller up...

    Doesn't look that bad.

    Are you sure you're only hitting 48? Don't rely on the dash for an accurate speed reading. Check your speed with a GPS.

    That one spark plug looks too clean... which probably means that cylinder is not firing. You should probably figure out why before doing anything else to the motor. It would be foolish to do a new...
