    XiR 1100 conversion

    The plan initially was to simply resurrect a very limited production classic piece of jet ski history. But we ended up buying more Kawi 1100 donor skis than we had planned this past fall .. so with an abundance of parts, we figure what the hell. Although we have three other conversions going on, the XiR needs a triple. Especially after speaking with Scottie Mac today, who got us all excited about that hull, it's handling characteristics & general overall performance with an 1100 under it's skirt.

    So here is what we have done thus far ;

    Figured out that a stock ZXI drive shaft will work - but needs to be shortened 33mm's & re-threaded.

    1100 bed plate - rear mounting holes line right up to stock XiR motor mounts. In order to utilize the front XiR motor mounts we had to drill two holes in the 1100 bed plate. Unfortunately the stringers don't extend much further forward than the front motor mount positions, so we are going to glass in threaded inserts so that we may run two additional motor mounts - equaling six mounts in total.

    Expansion chamber has been cut - we are avoiding cutting the hull & of foot tray area .. but we are going to need to remove some of the rear bulkhead in the back of the engine compartment.

    Will continue to post pics as we get deeper into this .. man, this shat is a blast !

    Correct. Not too many, which makes another one in the fleet exciting! Wish someone would buy mine and get it on the water....

    There is no room aft of the coupler. I.e the xirs motor is setback so far the driveshaft coupler is basically 1/2" off the bulkhead. You cannot "split the difference" of the extra cyl like on the sxr.
