    Re: Waterboxes: Do they create noise or performance?

    Thank you that makes more sense. They run those boats at full RPM and never mid range, where they'd be on the pipe.

    Re: Waterboxes: Do they create noise or performance?

    Not true, you can use an open cone. Check out the long tail river boats in Thailand. They're using Kawi motors with nothing but a half pipe.

    Bearing Buddy covers are the perfect size for capping off the fuel filler hole. Did that back in 2004 on my 550. Hose clamp to hold it tight.

    Re: 550 / 750 Xi pump question

    750 Pumps came with different size nozzles. Believe the RHAAS calls for a 650 Turn nozzle, but doesn't...

    The Stock SXR prop is larger than the pump stator hub. This creates a mixed flow pump. Water has to go around a bump in your jet pump.
