    Nothing really, there are no mods available for the 787. Especially in an old xp.












    Kidding! A good impeller, intake grate, and ride plate is a good start. After that maybe a milled or aftermarket head and flame arrestor setup. The 787 responds great to mods.

    An X-4 hulled 787 with the right handling and engine mods will track so tight it damn near pulls your elbows out of socket on the turns. X-4 hull is on of the best ever produced, imo.

    Wings, ride plate, drop nozzle assembly and rear sponsons. R&D used to make all the stuff you need besides the sponsons, I would check their website. Might post over on the SeaDoo forum for used stuff too. Runabout class was huge for several years there has to be a ton of that stuff out there that people still have.
