    Re: A salute to the Old Dudes that still ride Jet Skis!

    DB1BBA44-C7E4-470B-AFD3-4FD2F18A89A8.jpegJust saw this thread today. Iím 54 and havenít considered myself an old dude yet. My kids do(21&23) but until they can ride like me I laugh and then run away from them on the lake. I have a younger brother(51) and my wife(52) that ride stand ups also. I got my 800 big bore engine back from group-k to late in the fall to get it out, canít wait for spring.

    I’m not old by any means but I got in to stand ups late in my life,29. I’m 37 now. They were not popular in r area when I was a kid but I remember seeming ijsba races on espn when they were on and thought that was bad ***. Got a 91 440 when I was 29 and rode the hell out of it for a couple yrs and found I needed more power to do more tricks, carve harder and did a 650 conversion and what a difference! Also decided to buy another conversion 550/650. So I don’t have to ride alone lol. Now I found out u can do 750 conversion and old 750s round here r plentiful and cheap. Can’t wait till spring this yr!!!

    I'm 50 and just bought my first stand up last year a 90 550sx now I'm addicted. So I bought and restored a 93 750sx and now I'm in the process of buying a 550JS to restore. I'm not the greatest rider but I won't give up and I sure in the heck won't let my three boys, 17, 19 & 22 get the best of me!

    I am looking for the “linear power” from the porting and bore, along with the 13/22 swirl for speed, before a pipe. It all sounds stronger and faster.

    Get a a set of front sponsons and a Factory Pipe on that ski asap!


    The tubbies will make the ski handle much better, the extra power from the pipe will make the ski much more responsive, and you will find your riding skill (and the fun factor of your ski) will improve greatly with the added performance.
    If you're not crashing, then you're not trying!!!

    '84 js550/650 Hull, Tubbies, Footholds, 650sx Motor & Pump, 1.75 over 663cc's, OP Comp Head 190psi, 44SBN, Vortex FA, WC Intake, Boyesen Reeds w/ Stuffers, Factory B Pipe, Factory Waterbox, 650 Side Exhaust, Dual Cooling, Billet Couplers, Jet Works FCV, OP 650sx Ride Plate, PJS Top Loader, Skat 9-17, -2" AM Pole, MSD total loss. 54mph.

    Special thanks to Chris Newmiller, and Mitchell at M&M Marine!
