    Sea Doo HX Sport Spec (1st time)

    Hello everyone, yes another HX being built for Sport Spec class for the Great Lakes Watercross 2018 season.
    I was able to pick up two HX skis this summer, one is a '95 bought as a total runner with some not so great hull repairs.
    The other, a '96 missing the entire engine, exhaust manifold/stinger, all the electronics, and the oil reservoir.
    The hull is in excellent shape, and the previous owner already stripped the decals and factory mats off of it.
    So the '96 is the one I'll be building, and using the '95 as parts and engine donor.

    So far I have removed the gas tank, waterbox/piping, and foam from the interior.
    High pressure washed the entire hull, as it was covered in green slime.
    Ride plate, pump and nozzle have also been removed for clean up and new parts.
    Wear ring, neoprene seal and Solas Concord impeller should have arrived today, so breaking down the pump will be next.

    The '95 does run, so I want to take it out on the water before tearing it down.
    Carb rebuild kits, primer kit(I'll be removing the choke plates), and flame arrestors are in hand ready to go.

    I'm on this forum for support and knowledge, so please feel free to school me along the way.
    I'm not new to turning wrenches, and grew up along the banks of the Hudson River in NY as a kid.
    My first ski was a '92 XP with the dual carb 587cc twin.

    Pictures to follow my progress very soon.
    Thanks in advanced for any help you can offer.

    Congrats and welcome to the forum. You want a lesson on HX builds; check out RideH2o's evil twin thread. Wealth of information there.

    Except that Photobucket fvcked everyone on hosted pics. All my build threads are pictureless now. There are no words vulgar enough to describe what I think of Photobucket right now!!

    Ill be watching your build, though

    Thanks guys.

    I know the feeling with image hosting. I lost a whole three years of a build on a Honda motorcycle.

    More parts arrived today - A second drain bung, the impeller tool and seal, and a set of Slippery handle bars.

    Some pictures of the progress.

    Hull is ready to be buffed out, the bilge is cleaned up too.

    Pump has a new wear ring and Solas impeller.

    I found a decent trailer pretty cheap this weekend, and sold my current trailer in the same day.

    You can see the '95 HX in the background, that has the donor engine /electrics.

    Progress is slow but steady.

    I'll be taking out the '95 on a test run this week, hope she floats.
