    That looks like a good solution. Some aluminum mandrel bends would clean up the look for sure but that will function perfectly as shown. I feel given your setup that two waterboxes would be very...

    I can't answer any of the specifics as to keeping them both level or not when installing the water box and thru hull. I can say from experience that removing one box mostly adds to the sound level...

    You will want to incorporate the water box(s) into the exhaust to help with keeping the correct amounts of back pressure. Which also means keeping the exhaust below the water line. On the 1100s there...

    Looking to purchase a "longblock" 1200 Power Valve motor. I've got heads/exhaust/intake/carbs/ebox. Basically looking for a good case/crank/cylinders & pistons.

    If its a good case/crank but has a...

    My thoughts too. Seems like a power valve issue possibly. Have you had the covers off to inspect them? They need to be cleaned as well most likely. Also, you can do a “plug chop” to check for a fuel...

    Yeah I see exactly what you mean. If you have a tape, I wonder what the length is from that small "wall" the intermediate assembly mounts on to the front of the air box/ebox? It definitely looks as...

    Looks like I've got a customer bringing a 2008 & 2010 VX Cruiser my way for inspection/repairs. (I mostly work on 2-strokes) Was told one "runs rough" the other "won't run faster than 25mph". I'll be...

    Nice looking ski. Could you get a measurement of the complete MR-1 from coupler to furthest forward point? Looks like you've made good progress already. Keep it up!

    Yeah, I figured that ebox and air box would add to it. But the TR1 total dimensions are smaller then the MR1. Per a few articles I have read, here is from Boating Mag "Featuring nominally smaller...

    That'd be great to have those measurements. TR1 with the typical upgrades plus tune might reduce the power gap between it and the MR1 HO. All the while weighing substantially less.
