    Stiff competition coming for the SXR1500

    https://www.yamahawaverunners.com/wa...d-up/superjet/

    I can see current SXR1500 racers going to Yamaha in droves next season.
    375lb (only 25lbs more than an 800 SXR!)
    $9500.00
    1050cc 3 cylinder TR-1 motor

    Looks like a much better and more fun ski for sure!

    Exactly. I'll give them the weight but it's still a long ski.

    Only $5000 more for a turbo kit so it will keep up with a 1500...

    I don't think it will be needed...SXR is 175lb more than this SJ. I guess we will see on the track next year.

    That's comparing dry weight to curb weight, curb weight for the Yamaha is 441lbs., so 110lbs different.

    Good point. Where did you find the curb weight of the SJ? I can't find it in the specs provided.
