    LOL! Look at the wheel, it is offset as well! Probably looked like a circus wheel rolling down the road!

    That type wheel has no centering flange, gets its center from the tapered lug nuts. ...

    I agree wholeheartedly with K447. We are not yet in a position to relax the stay at home rules. There are 5 factors that can mitigate this crisis:

    1. Universal access and required wearing of N95...

    WTF is with the guys bringing up these necro threads this morning? Dude, this thread up and died FOURTEEN fucking years ago. Sheesh!

    MAP sensors are prone to failing and are a helluva lot cheaper than ECM's. What intake pressure values were you showing when connected to BUDS? A good MAP sensor will read 14.7 psi with engine off,...

    Necro thread. You do realize you are responding to something that happened three years ago?
  7. Kawaski doesn't use a centrifugal SC, it is...

    Kawaski doesn't use a centrifugal SC, it is positive displacement, so it really isn't in the same category. However, the Kawi SC has a lot of inertia as the mass of the assembly is greater than the...

    Nonsense. The clutch wouldn't unload during a surge event. You forget that most centri race chargers out there don't use sprag clutches. The sprag clutch is only there from the re-entry after loss...
  9. And why do you think you are right? Just because...

    And why do you think you are right? Just because BOV's are used in other applications, including race SC's, why do you think this applies to the Yamaha design? Do you have any data to prove your...

    You have this all wrong. There is no slippage on a sprag clutch during acceleration, the SC is locked during accel. The whole purpose of the sprag clutch is to eliminate shaft breakage during fast...

    Show me evidence! This is the third time I have said this, there are no studies that prove what you are saying.

    My best guess is a weak carbon seal hose. They lose tension over time.

    I had the same sort of issue on a 2000 GTX LTD, took me quite awhile to find it. On that ski, it was simply the pump mount...

    I still go back to my original point. Yamaha doesn't install BOV's. There is NO data, no scientific tests that show they add any benefit.

    Why would you spend money on something that doesn't...

    There is a major problem with this theory. The superchargers on these skis are centrifugal pumps, not positive displacement. The potential pressure rise is self-limiting, and once it reaches a...

    The injectors are all provided with +12V power, and each injector is fired by the ECM taking each injector line to ground. First thing to check is the fuse that powers the injector rail, then go...

    No, it cannot. These engines only have a dummy switch, so the ECU cannot monitor pressure value, only if it is above the threshold.

    Sea Doo had a big problem in 2002 with cranks breaking. They made some changes for 2003. Throw away your scored crank as a precaution since you have it apart.

    Early summer is usually the best time of year for flat water. However, one thing a lot of people dont know about summer weather here in FL is that you only try to do this type of thing early in the...

    Just a clarification, it isn't the Gulf, it is the Atlantic Ocean, much different water. I have been diving in this particular area more than riding, and cant tell you how many times conditions...

    Others may have a different opinion, but on past engines I have built using parts from catastrophically failed engines, my view is that connecting rods can be reused from cylinders that have no...

    I also think it would be really cool. That said, it could be the worst thing you have ever done. Being from out of town, you will have to plan this trip well in advance, and in my opinion, this...

    Another item that gets damaged with water ingestion, especially saltwater, is the MAP sensor. Sounds like you also have residual water in the intake. Suggest you clean out all the intake,...

    Just for clarification, the GSX came out in 1996, with a carb 787. In 97, it was updated in color and electronics, and in mid 1997 they introduced the LTD version with carb 951. In 1998, they...

    IDK about that. There is a recent thread of some doofus torquing his injector rail bolts using ft lbs vs inch pounds.

    Some people shouldn't work on their own skis.

    For those of you that have broken the plug, you do realize that the torque value is measured in inch lbs, not foot pounds, right?
