    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.

    Does any one know what ride plates that has reverse bucket brackets that will fit my 900zxi hull? I would like to add reverse but I’m not sure what will work, any help on fitment and where to buy would be much appreciated!
