  1. Re: 650 Wave Jammer Engine Swap and novice Freeride/ Freestyle ski

    Frank, I dig this ski and this thread! It very cool to see an otherwise overlooked model of ski pushed to perform at a high level. Well done, sir!
  2. Re: Any ideas what this plate I found siliconed down under my engine is?

    It was not uncommon for many that raced JS hulls back in the day to add weight under the engine.

    Re: Here is your new 4 stroke Super Jet!

    I dig everything i have seen or read about the new SJ. I had a new SXR-1500 on loan from a dealer for two days and it did not appeal to me at all. The new SJ is the size and engine displacement that...

    Re: Conversion exhaust options

    They work very well in a conversion ski and give it a deeper tone and sound. I suggest running a lot of disks with the SuperTrapp. At least a dozen or so.
