    the xp uses slightly larger fuel lines ( 5/16 v 1/4) then other seadoos, that's why the fuel valve and other bits are pricey

    not sure exactly what might happen if you go with the 1/4 inch lines

    seeing you're investing in a new shortblock, go with the oem pickups and valve, you don't want to find out exactly why they went bigger, but I suspect at full throttle and heavy maneuvers they are trying to keep the fuel lines from sucking air

    Use the pickup you have & pull from the "reserve" side & block off the "on" side.

    Looking at a 2001 XP as well and the owner mentioned about the valve need replacement. Might want to go with oem as well.

    I would stick with OEM, if you go with one PU, you might find yourself stranded because you wont have a reserve.

    Sounds logical to stay with oem.

    IMO if you run out of gas you deserve it.
