    Re: HX800 project pulled out of extended storage

    You could be onto something there. Everything inside that rear box is pretty corroded. I will check it first but I have considered replacing the entire guts of that box anyway(because of the...

    I pulled the Raves apart this morning hoping that some insect had made a home in the air pressure passages, wishful thinking. I doubt any insect would like the smell in that area. The passages were...

    Re: HX800 project pulled out of extended storage

    I've had this thing in the water a few times and I can't get past ~4200 RPM. On my first trip the limit seemed closer to 4K. Today I went with the red wire from the rectifier disconnected and it...

    Re: 720 carbs

    I had a 1997 GSi with a single carb 720 and I have never had a more easy going engine. I never truly understood how dual carbs could be better since both cylinders don't draw at the same time...

    HX800 project pulled out of extended storage

    I have decided to blow the dust off of a long forgotten project. Years ago, can't say how many, I started this project with a hull that I was given. I bought an 18ft bow-rider and PWCs have been...
  11. Re: 720 single carb stumble(but doesn't fall) at near mid throttle

    I will probably not be able to answer, I had the GSi for sale and the day I posted this I was contacted and sold the boat. I told the buyer of the issue and he was happy to buy.

    It looks like a 95 GTX to me. It it still has the original vin plate, I think its last two digits will give you the year model info. The data plate on the front of the motor probably shows 717cc.
