    I do know this. But if I'm correct it should help me in the bottom end performance. I'm hoping it will help me turn the 14/20 prop. If I go with a 13/19 it's coming off. I saved the stock exhaust. Let me know if I'm mistaken?

    Has anyone had a difficuilt time setting there tiny tach? Im trying to set the tach to 360* since thats what it seems like everyone with a gp1300 has done. Maybe its just me but its not going into the settings mode after holding the button down to do so.

    Thanks man! Yes they are DuraTracs. IMO they are the best offroad and on road tire out there in regards to ride qualitly and wear life. My Jeep looks way different than in those pictures now. This past weekend instead of doing my tunnel reinforcement on the ski i lifted the Jeep 2 inches and stuffed 33s on it. I also put new fenders on it too. Came out pretty sick heres what it looks like:

    Thanks guys!

    Finally got around to putting in the tunnel reinforcement in this weekend. Slowly but surely everything is being installed on the ski. Heres a picture of the motor and how I ran the Tiny Tach and ground for it:

    I started by ripping out all that styrofoam that held the OEM exhaust up... Which was a PITA. I was never ending:

    Getting those brackets that were glued on to the hull was yet again a PITA. Had to heat it up for atleast 5 min but got them both off, It was pretty tight on the one side near the water box so i loosened up the clamp and twisted it up.

    I sanded everything down. I also had to sand down some of the crap yamaha concrete glue that was infront of the skin to get it to fit on the tunnel.

    Glued it all in and bolted it down using the IR brackets that were included:

    Also while that was all opened up I installed my Rule 800 GPH bilge:

    It was very quick and easy. I just cut the wires from the old one and then soldered and strink wraped the new bidge in.

    I threw in the free flow exhaust in as well. I reused the old clamps and doubled them up on both sides:

    This weekend I started to install the oil block off kit, Riva power filter and IR hole shot kit. I premixed my fuel tank with Koltz at 40:1 and ran the ski for 15 minutes with the oil pump still attached so the motor was getting double the amount of oil (through the fuel lines and pump). While it was running I checked the tiny tach and set it to 120* and the readings were right on the money.

    I then started to pull the stinger/exhaust which was a lot easier than I thought would be. The first owner put a D-Plate in and notched the hull allready. So it all slipped out perfectly.

    I put a vice grip on the oil feed line to the pump so no oil would leak out and disconnected the pump from the block. I cut the oil feed lines to the injectors and put small self tapping screws in them so nothing could get in the injectors somehow. I pulled the "passengers" side fearing off to remove the vent of the pump out too and siliconed the hole up. I then removed the pump and oil tank at the same time, cut the oil feed line and let it drain out. While it was doing that I put the block off plate and gasket on.

    After the oil tank drained out I capped the feed opening at the bottom and put it back in and strapped it back down. I had to make the oil tank sensor think it had a full tank of oil so I did this to it:

    Now for the Riva power filter. I removed all the plastic piping and the box going into the flame arrestor and popped on the filter to the front of the flame arrestor.

    Next I have to tap the exhaust for the connectors for the hole shot kit and install the gasket.
