  1. Re: New Precise XiR stock decal sets for sale... checking interest

    Well guys it looks like we're gonna try and get IPD Graphics to start working on a xir decal set. We need to work out some details still but it looks like if they can get 6 kits pre sold, they will...

    Thanks for the heads up. Actually I had a race spec Riva 650 cylinder a while ago which I was going to use. Sold it at some point. I think I'm going to have Newmiller port the cyl I have. Its a 00 00...

    Thanks guys. Once we get beyond this covid craziness we need to get back to our cross state gatherings.

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

    Ok a few updates. Family responsibilities / longer hours at work / covid craziness has prevented me from putting on my next mod.. a Coffmans sizzler pipe set up from fox river pwc. Thank you again...
  8. Re: Modified 850 vs 1100.. Looking for info I cant find.

    I have a ported 830cc superstock engine with the best wet pipe made in my xir, and I have thought about putting a mod 1100 in that ski. I can't talk about the ss because I'm not sure on the exact...
  9. Re: Prowatercraft Sponsons Lip vs. No Lip

    I had the original non lip versions on my first gen 550/800 hull and loved them. I have a set waiting to go on the second hull. I'm interested to hear feedback on the lip as well. I'm guessing it...

    Regarding those gaps with the ride plate, just fill them with silicone after you've test ridden a few times and like the ski. With all the work I was doing, I was pulling parts off left and right for...

    Re: 550/750 common failures

    I ran a 10/16 Impros Hooker and 80mm nozzle with my 750 dual carb. With the ported 800 I was at a 11/17 hooker and 76mm nozzle and still under pitched. And that's where I stopped because the hull had...
  14. Re: 650 Wave Jammer Engine Swap and novice Freeride/ Freestyle ski

    Mod 701 pipe, yes. But the tank might need a little melting. 701 limited I don't think so with the stock tank. I saw a picture of one and the ski was not running an aftermarket smaller one.

    Man that sounds like a great time.

    First, was the engine rebuilt prior to putting it in the ski? New engine gaskets, crank seals, carb gaskets? If so, great. I would still bring extras just in...

    Re: ***Fastest 'current' 550 in the world***

    Without a doubt. Our friend's detuned 440 mod with charging ignition was around 42 I believe. Faster than his limited 550. Fast little skis for their displacement!

    Keeping that pole pad is definitely cool. Looks like the square is not so square, it has a mohawk!

    Keep up the good work. Interested to see if you've got handling mods coming.

    Re: SN confinement Build

    Saw your other thread with the reply from Mtrhead. If your goal is to get closer to the 08+ SJ hull mods / handling, the rear of the ski was also narrowed. I believe this makes the ski roll easier.

    Sounds good. A few notes on this. The 650sx pipe will choke a 750 dual carb output terribly and will probably impact your jetting. This pipe is ok to use on a single carb if you are willing to accept...
