    1994 750 XISS Restore

    So I bought a '94 750xiss for a good deal. I was buying it for the motor originally but quickly noticed it had a complete aftermarket exhaust, flame arrestors. It is pretty clean on the inside and has a complete Coffman exhaust setup but the outside was rattle canned grey by the previous owner's son. They even painted over the stickers. But I would like a more exciting tow-ski.

    What I would like to do is throw a nice paint job on it, new Hydroturf, finger throttle, possibly redo the seat, and handlebars (since my friend ripped the foam off). I have not checked the prop yet. I am not trying to throw too much $ at this couch but it would be nice to have something with a little more zip than the TS I currently let people ride around. I mainly ride stand ups but I think this thing would be pretty cool.

    I am stopping by the local paint shop this weekend to see what they have, I think there is a House of Kolor supplier nearby too. I will be starting the body work soon and plan to have it painted before the end of August.

    I am thinking a white base coat with pearlescent blue clear followed by clear. She's not pretty, I know. Kind words only lol.

    Any ideas will be entertained. Thanks.

    Edit: The trim does not work. Set to the down position. Any benefit to having working trim on this ski?

    Sent you a pm.
    I have a trim unit, seat handle bar cover, anything that would come off the hull after I got the bits I wanted.

    I have at least 1 nice seat for your ski and you can drive here to get it.
    Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    Re: 1994 750 XISS Restore

    Two mishaps here in the pictures below where I put the paint on a little too heavy. Other than that the rest of the paint looks good. I made a "booth" in the barn with some tarps and wet the floor. Accidentally pulled the tarp from the ceiling in one corner and let a bit of dust and bugs in momentarily which definitely hurt the overall outcome. A little wet sanding and buffing and I will be satisfied. Any other mistakes I come across could get the 1-2 sticker slap. It's not perfect but I did well for the circumstance. This was my first time using a HVLP spray gun for a project. I used a 1.4mm nozzle for everything including primer, sealer, base, clear. As always, prep is king. I could've spent another week prepping the body but in the end it's just an old 1994 750 xiss. All this effort just to use the coffman pipe setup.. Well see. If the pipe set up didn't come with the ski I probably would have just pitched the hull but it was good to get that experience in for next time.

    Cylinder stamped 22 and head marked B. I wish this was one of the high compression green head motors that came with the XIR. Compression is at 140/145. I am using a big pin dual intake because the cross over tube on small pin dual intake is lower (therefore it can be drilled to match 650 bolt pattern) and I plan to use the small pin intake on a 650 motor in the future. 566D3CEC-7D62-4976-8541-CDC5745755C3.jpeg

    Also the opening size of the big pin intake is smaller than that of the small pin intake. I suppose there will be a higher velocity of air moving through the carbs. What this means for tuning I do not yet know.

    I have an R&D 750 o ring head with 27cc domes I could use on this motor if I want to bump it up down the road.

    Anyone have any suggestions for covering this up?

    Not sure if I want to replace the seat with another stock seat or replace the cover material.
