    Definitely going through everything I can. The ride plate mounts have been completely cobbled together somehow, and there's a leak. The next step for the weekend after this one is to get some epoxy...

    I think I'm going to make a build log...

    Setting Static Timing With No Marks

    I recently bought another pro 785 as a project, and it's quite the project. When a guy from PWCToday tells you he has a project, it's a mess.

    You have a sandy pump because the pump is sucking up sand from the bottom of the lake/ocean/etc that you're riding in. Try and shut it off in deeper water. There's a good chance all of that is...

    Glad you got it working. I've found a lot of people jump right to carb rebuild, but sometimes it can be something else with the fuel system. The fuel systems on these skis with the Mikuni SBNs all...

    Long story short, years ago, like late 90s, my family bought a blown up SL 750 with really low hours and a thrown rod to use for parts for my Pro. It paid itself off somewhat with things like the...
