    You'll get the hang of this site. You just gotta roll with the punches, read between the lines, and determine for yourself who to listen to.

    Re: Free style question about a SXR converted into an 1100 motor.

    I found a 1992 yamaha , with 701 61x motor with foot holds. looks like everything else is stock for 2500. any thoughts? would I need to start modding that ski or would it be pretty fun in that condition? single carb.

    Re: Free style question about a SXR converted into an 1100 motor.

    92 is a square nose, right? The 701 is the base plate for all the BIG guys. I think that ski should have come with a 650. (I think).

    If it runs, and all else is good, grab that fukker by the taint and drag it home. Sounds perfect for what you want!

    I just snatched a SNSJ with a 701, also. I have a bunch of skis, including a few RN's, but not a SN. I traded one of my bikes for it. I hope we both like them!

    yes, its a Square Nose, he stated he upgraded it to a 701 single carb out of a 95 ski.

    Grab it up. Check it out, ride it, and buy it.

    I have a bunch of SXR's, and it doesn't sound like the ski you want. I have a few RN's, and they are WAY more playful. I haven't ridden this 701 SN, but it should be fun. Sounds like a good deal, and if you can get it cheaper, better for you.

    Re: Free style question about a SXR converted into an 1100 motor.

    The SN will be perfect for you. A few things to check before you buy:

    Compression! Make sure it has at least 145psi in each cylinder and no more then a 5-10psi difference between the cylinders.

    * when you check the compression hold down the start and stop switch at the same time*

    Take a flashlight to check out the pump, make sure the impeller looks good and no big chunks taken out of the pump veins

    Bring a battery because most likely you will show up and the battery will be dead.

    Check the handle pole for cracks. The SN handle poles break fairly easily. You should upgrade that anyway, but you might be able to use it to lower the price of the ski.

    Have the guy take a picture of the engine bay and post it here and we can tell you have

    It's always better to take some vodka with you. Drink some before you get there. I t will lossen you up. If the seller is a clown, drink some more. You can do you from there on in!
