Thread: Just got a FX-1

    Re: Just got a FX-1

    you are in for the most enjoyable a$$ kicking you ever received! there are a few A/M pipes for sale over on the X right now that wont break the bank. Skat swirl and tubbies were the best improvement IMO. Forget that conversion. with Yamaha its add gas/oil and ride!

    Hopefully Saturday if I can get a new side fence up on Friday, if I head up the river without finishing it the Mrs will shoot me!
    I'll have a look on the X, it's not the cost of the part its the freight to get it over to oz - usually that means doubling what you pay for things. A short block was going to cost $450-500 for freight and I think a shop wanted to charge $200 freight on a 650 gasket kit and coil. I politely declined their offer and waited for a friend who was on holiday to bring it back.
    If you ever want a laugh have a look at sbtjetskiparts.com.au - $1550 for a kwaka 650 exchange with a rebuildable core - I'm not begrudging someone from making a living but really???!!! Same goes for Apple stuff; the new iPads which are made in China are $100-$150 more expensive here even with the dollar sitting in the mid 90's.
    It's over 20 years since I last rode a 550 so I'm looking forward to something looser than the 650.
    I'll let you know how it goes!

    Re: Just got a FX-1

    I've ridden and built most skis.. 550s, 650s, 750 conversions, 750 x2's, superjets, etc.. I just got a FX-1 at the end of the summer, just has a ride plate, scoop grate and skat impeller, By far the funnest ski I've ridden!! Feel like I'm gonna fall of the back of it sometimes, super squirly, unstable, and fast as hell.. Chase down some wake boats waves and you can launch that thing huge!! As said early......welcome to the FX-1 cult!
    FX-1's ROCK!!!!!

    Re: Just got a FX-1

    I noticed in your photos your FX has a set of JS550 rear sponsons. Even with those it will be a lot more loose than your 650SX ski.. They handle very similarly to a JS hull. Just a bit more refined and better engineered. I have a set of Blowsion tubbies on my ski and I really dig them.. The ski is stable and carves like a knife. The power delivery on a FX is unique as well. I would not trade my FX-1 for any other ski. You are going to dig this thing!! Looking forward to your ride report, so get that fence done and ride on.

    Re: Just got a FX-1

    I've been having a look at other FX's online to see if the had sponsons - now I know why mine is the odd one out!
    No luck this weekend but were heading up the river next weekend, can't wait!
    Any advice on an intake grate and ride plate?

    i like the riva intake. if your doing freestyle see if you can find a d cut one. it would be a shame to chop a fx1 plate.

    ProTec MoFlow intake grate (Watcon usually has 'em in stock) and a Shredmaster rideplate (contact Shredmaster soon to get your order in for this winters run of plates).
