    Re: 2017 Kawasaki SX-R

    15F engine, and pump. They said Impeller is the also same. I too work on 15f's all the time, and IMO looks like it is going to be easier to work on with more room. ( IE I can actually get to the oil filer...)

    Looked good on the water. They did a gate / rubber band start so we could see the acceleration.

    It is big, but at least Kawi is still in the game.

    Re: 2017 Kawasaki SX-R

    Nice collection of pictures.
    That hull is really odd looking. Above the chine it looks fairly normal (except for the weird bulges next to the fuel cap)
    Below the chine the forward hull is very deep and a lot narrower than the chine. That speaks to how much additional displaced volume they needed to support the increased weight. If that ski only wight 150 lb more than an 800sxr, I would be surprised.

    Good work Kawasaki !! Now we need a X2 !!
    Closed cooling system right?
    or do you mean corrosion from saltwater on an open cooling system?

    I don't know about 15f's...I appreciate any info about them you can spare... although I'll probably won't work on it anyway due to the complexity.

    I witnessed the start in a live feed.. they were impressive, even though Minoru fell off during the trial laps

    It raw water cooled.
    I own a 2015 15f and the engine rips. I have had the cooling system clog but was able to blow it out

    It's a whale. Kawasaki just created a new division for racing. The Standabout.

    Re: 2017 Kawasaki SX-R

    IJSBA already changed the stock class rules to make this ski race legal.

    I like that Kawi is coming back in the game, but I think there is a better way to go about it.

    I checked it out in person today. She's rather large and heavy. Me and s buddy tried lifting one. We aren't body builders, but I'd say that ski will take 3-4 people to move it off the beach.

    Hard to believe this stand up is almost a foot longer than a waveblaster. . .

    Re: 2017 Kawasaki SX-R

    Nice boat impressive 63mph stock before milling etc its at 70 mph,l think you'll find it bit funner like the 650sx its more suited because of weight for oceanic riding for those of you that havnt rode the ocean ,l really dont wana ride a lake ever again minus the greatlakes possibly

    You know a carbon or kevlar version is gonna be like 100+ lbs lighter,plus a alluminum engine cradle will shave a bit more ,a carbon waterbox its all gonna add up to mostlikely alot more nimble machine

    Let's see what the factory race boats is?

    Theres gonna be alota people buying just hulls for the triple 2 Strokes
