    Took a little ride to pick up a new toy… SXR 800

    The kid was bitten by the bug and has been researching stand ups… and he decided he was a SXR 800. So… we found one on marketplace and decided to take a 4hr ride to the Adirondacks to buy this ski. It is SUPER clean, almost showroom clean!!

    There is a bracket available for mounting a compact Rule brand bilge pump down low near the driveshaft. I forget which company makes that bracket. We had one in our 800-SXR.

    The battery is a bit of a hassle to get in/out, so I would recommend installing a factory sealed AGM battery such as the Deka ETX or Odyssey TPPL which should last for years. Factory sealed AGM battery have the advantage of never leaking acid even if inverted to damaged somehow.

    I also added a polarized charge wire to make it easy to charge the battery without using clips.

    On our 2003 example I found the original molded rubber fuel hoses were slowly degrading from age. I replaced them all with genuine Kawasaki new fuel hoses as a precaution. I really, really did not want any risk of a fuel leak inside the hull. I think I used Oetiker hose clamps to secure the new hoses on the fittings.

    Thanks for the good tips!! It already has a newer AGM installed.
    I plan on changing out the fuel lines, like we did on our GPR.
    I will definitely look into installing a bilge pump.

    I own 4 SXR 800s They are fun rides. That ski is so clean keep it all stock! Put only genuine kawasaki parts on it. It is going to be a collectors item soon. Worth more than you paid.
