    Cool build. With some modding a triple fits, floats and works. Not to many out there though. Subscribing...

    This is crazy, but I like it, FYI the hull gets unstable at about 40 mph, however I am sub'ed to see how the extra weight is a plus or works against the design of the hull. MORE PICS please. Might recommend tubbies and "Fish Sticks" (see www.watcom.com) for the fish sticks.

    I'm not sure if you mean your build will be completed quicker, or your ski will be faster.... I think you have a good shot at being right on both counts

    On the other hand....a factory pipe could probably make up a good part of that 10 h.p. difference....

    Put some front sponsons on as that might help float it a bit better and add some stability. Get some Pro Watercraft, they should work well.

    Re: Triple in a 550

    Here is a thread to my 1100-550 mockup. I moved on to other projects ...like the 1100 X2. After riding the X2, I gave up on the JS 1100 ... always afraid the X2 will sink and the JS would be worse! It will float much lower when you get done... believe me!

    http://www.pwctoday.com/showthread.php?t=395567

    However...

    The stripped pipe was real close to fitting with a small blister and and milled manifold
    Convert it to center-bleed for sure
    A late mode Superjet waterbox will strap right in and has the big diameter tubes ... side exit probably
    The electrics will fit in a plastic box easy like a JSS conversion
    A RCI 4 gallon dragster tank will probably fit right in there .. Put one in a 550 SX with a 701 FPP ... fit nice

    Good luck! I want a ride...

    Re: Triple in a 550

    I have a 900 zxi pipe that has been cut down to fit into a 750sx with a 900/1100 engine. I don't think I will ever use it as I am saving to buy a Bullet hull. The bolt holes need to be retapped, payed $75 for it.
