    I think he meant WaveRaider.. as in WaveRunner WaveRaider. I never had a problem on the old 94 701 Raider. In fact.. it holds a special place in my heart. It wasn't until I took out a 95 1100 Raider. 5 mins on the water and it ripped me off at a very high speed. That was the last time I ever rode one. They were fast for their time and the engine sounded great.. but forget turning.

    wait.... no lanyard? I know older standups had the self circle ( will someone explain how it knew when you fell off? did it always circle when the handlepole is down or something? ) but did this one just slow down to idle and keep on going?

    Re: 1978 Wetbike Rebuild

    Sorry to bump an old thread.

    I recently had one of these things dropped off at my shop to get going . Decided I could take the challenge over the winter. Went through the fuel system and I don't have spark with the post wired up only after I disconnect it. The key post I suspect is stuck closed grounding the coil.
    Does anyone know where I can get a post for this wetbike? I bought a new key from Atlantis but it doesn't open the switch it stays closed.
