    Re: PROJECT SXR / 900ace (thread redo)

    Thanks guys!

    @cam wrecker...Trust me, I have been seriously thinking about the removable top half.
    There would be a lot more than just nuts and bolts holding the two halves together...cables, wires, bilge and pisser hoses, rear sponsens, etc. would have to be separated, also
    Not to mention would the hull be as solid / strong as a glued hull??
    I would literally have to use about a 100 M5 stainless nuts and bolts around the bondline to make me comfortable about the strength....lol

    who does your aluminum work? I was going to see if you could reproduce your HX seat frame...

    Finally got an impeller from Impros....so I can measure driveline length.
    Dave hooked me up with a 12/16 w/ race finish. The modded Sparks seem to be running anywhere from a 12/15 to a 12/17, and they have a 140mm pump, also.
    So I figured I'd start somewhere in the middle.

    And a cool shorty pump cone that only fits the Solas pump



    Working on gas tank now...what a pain!

    Not much in the last few weeks. Been way too busy at work!! Don't ever want to complain about too much work, so I'll complain about not enough hours in the day.
    I come home from the day, walk by the ski just sitting there and I'm just too tired and unmotivated to do anything.
    A few jobs are wrapping up now. So this weekend, who knows? maybe do the tank.

    Re: PROJECT SXR / 900ace (thread redo)

    Ok, finally wrapped up lingering headache jobs. Being a general contractor is all fine and dandy until all the subs are too busy to stay on schedule! errr!

    Anyways, garage is cleaned out, I can get all the way around the ski now. Back to business on the project. Gonna do a big push over Christmas vacay.

    Definitely doing the "split hull design" like a Spark. Hard to engineer in the short term...but will be a God Send in the long run! I have it all figured out...I think.

    I have it figured, just have to make it.
    Go ahead, post a pic...did you end up with that tank you sent me pictures of?
    It was a nice tank, but I don't think it would of fit with my motor and battery layout. My tank will be low and wide as to keep a low center of gravity.
    Sparks get awesome gas mileage, and since no OEM exhaust going around front of the SXR tank I can utilize that space. Probably shoot for the 4-5gal size range.
    That would be at least twice as much ride time as a stock SXR!! (3x's as much as my current gas guzzling SXR...lol)

    Where you putting the Spark info gauge, on yours?
