    I have not used those pads. I have used something called Bunk Mates, which are a hard plastic with grooves. I bought some sold by Kawasaki, and they SUCK! They damaged my hull after 100 miles of...

    Yes, you could do that. If so, I'd put washers under the bolt heads.

    It can be a PITA to adjust them. The easiest thing I've found is to use a 1/4" hex screwdriver bit in a 1/4" box wrench. There is very little room between the carbs.

    The temp sensor is under the glove box. It's a silver cylinder with a black hose that goes to the pisser and a black hose that attaches to the exhaust pipe.

    Now I'm confused. I tried to put a 900 head on an 1100 engine and the cylinder spacing was different. The intake manifolds have different spacing, but the double carb mounting gasket is the same...

    Don't understand. Are you saying that SBT swapped a 900 for and 1100? Or did the previous owner swap engines?

    My nephew just put a 900 engine in an 1100 ZXi hull and there are differences.

    That's why you should remove the display and seal the rubber plug on the back with 3M 5200 Fast Cure.

    Did you figure out what caused the first engine to fail?

    While the 900 and 1100 engines look similar, the cylinder spacing is different. That means carbs and exhaust are different.

    I'm impressed! REALLY impressed! That looks beautiful, and when you look at before and after, and how quickly you did it, especially with the hassle of overseas shipping, I'm at a loss for words.

    Any significant amount of fuel left in the tank will leave a gooey residue. I'm sure that's not helping matters any.

    How much does he want?

    You can always pop the valve cover off and look at the camshafts. That's the part most likely to rust.

    I don't think anybody would really know, but I doubt that you've caused any damage. Giving it a fogging oil chaser ought to clean it right up.
