    Re: 89 Kawi X2 first build

    Well I got sent out of town for work so it'll be 2 weeks before I can work on it again. But... Being out here I got offered this 750 for free. I don't know if it's big pin or small pin or anything else about it. I know it has a mariner head on it. So I am thinking about using this 750 instead of an 800.

    That 750ss will probably have a big pin in it. You will be saving a lot of money compared to obtaining an 800 engine.

    89 Kawi X2 first build

    First day home, I chopped 1.5" off the back, and chopped the seat. I am going to work on the hood tomorrow and get some stuff ordered from us composites to get the glass going on the deck. Still need to get some tom 21 tubbies and a bunch of other parts. Umi steering unit should be showing up any day now.

    Looking good, nice cut. Take your time and get it right. Any pics of that engine bay of the donor ski. Did it have a single or duel carbs. I think it has a small pin single carb but you never know. What resin are you going to use?

    Thanks mike, cuts aren't perfect but they will sand down just fine. I am off this week but as soon as I get back to west Texas for work I'll get a couple pictures of that 750, I honestly didn't even look at it to much. As for the resin I am honestly not sure what to use. I'll have to do some research before I order anything.

    89 Kawi X2 first build

    Today I got the hood cut down, I was going to shave it flat with the rest of the hood but I couldn't come up with any good air intake ideas that I liked so I just cut the big hump off. I also cut an extra 1" off the rear, so 2.5" total.

    I also cut the oil and gas tray out of the front.
