    900zxi-1648 mod v jet jon build
    I recently got a wrecked 1996 900zxi that someone scraped because of a damaged hull. I got it running but the trim box needs to be fixed because of water damage. I have recently cut the hull on ski and will soon be taking outboard off of my 1648 and start the build.. I have found a trim box on ebay and waiting for arrival. After reading several post one here it seems that the zxi trim boxes are a big problem. I hope this will fix my gauges. I plan on utilizing all mechanics of the ski as far as steering, throttle, gauges, kill switch, trim etc... and ill put ignition on a toggle switch if its doable. I'm sure some people are gonna hate but we run the New River in WV and it hates props. This should be a fun build and I hope for a good outcome.

    That sounds awesome. How far along are you now? I'm about to start a similar project. I have a 14/70 landau Jon boat with a custom deck. I bought a 2007 kawa stx 12f real cheap. It had an electrical issue but it turned out to be the crank shaft sensor. Did a test run the other day and it runs great. Real smooth and quiet for a jet ski. I guess it's time to get the sawsall out!

    I just have the motor out of hull and trimming unnecessary fiberglass off to make for a neater job.. I hope to cut rear seat out of boat, start doing measuring and cutting hull out of boat this weekend if all goes well.
