    Re: The 650sx Brotherhood

    My first stand up was this 89' 650SX and my first project for that matter. I learned how to ride on this one and enjoyed every minute of it. It wasn't long before I sold it but looking back on it now I wish I would have kept it. We all have to move on eventually tho.

    The day I got her.

    And after the restoration was complete.

    Thanks! Yup, that's off a boat wake. As for what I'm running, it's nothing too special. Compression is up a bit, and I modified the pipe cooling to run a little warmer. I built a trim system using parts from an X2 and increased the steering angle. Footholds, new turf, and fresh paint to finish it off.

    I love mine. She's faster out of the hole than my stock 09 superjet no lie. But then again she has every bolt on and is running 190psi

    My 89. Running a 90 something small pin 750 ported, 180 psi, kerker pipe. Custom rear exhaust, foot holds. And a few fiber glass mods here and there.
    It runs with the sxrs no problem. And makes my friends 701 super jet seem like a slug.

    Re: The 650sx Brotherhood

    The 650 does serve a purpose....handles the rough water better and gives you longer range. With the 550's we usually have to ditch fuel somewhere along our route. Our outings are generally not short local hops...here's pics of mine.

    Northern fleet:
    85 550 (Power by PoM)
    86 550
    Southern fleet:
    89 550 (half owner, nice loaner ski)
    89 650
    92 550
    82 550 & 91 650 (don't own either, but do all the wrenching)

    (prop, plate, grate, bars on everything...and other assorted mods on the whole shootin' match)

    Got my 650 used and cost me 12 bucks to get it running and spent another 1000 to get her looking good. image.jpg

    Re: The 650sx Brotherhood

    Has anyone tried to backflip or roll their 650? Want to put a pair of foot straps on and try one off of a V wake. I can backflip on my bmx bike Is it any thing like a bike?

    Kyle I don't know much about flipping but I am digging the color combo on your ski! What paint did you use?
