Time for another build, sadly (for me haha) it is a race build.
But....if one ProForce in the stable is great – then two MUST be better! See the original ProForce build: Part 1 & Part 2.

Chris at Pro Watercraft Racing has put in countless hours, research, and detail into developing a completely new aftermarket racing stand up jet ski hull. That effort shows in the quality carbon & fiberglass work, how accurately everything lines up, and most importantly – how the ski performs on the race course.

My hubs's ProForce 2.0 features:
Full carbon fiber build with a visual carbon center
Bottom hull formed for Kawasaki 1500cc four stroke power plant
Medium metal flake paint
Custom Jettrim mats
Optional rear fuel tank
Front F1 inspired bumper
Ultra handlepole
Dual exit exhaust

In mid-July 2019 the Pro Watercraft Racing ProForce showed up in our driveway in the back of a coworker’s SUV, after travelling in a different coworker’s trailer from Havasu to Houston. Thanks ya’ll!


Work has been slow to start on this Pro Watercraft Racing handmade beauty, but with the addition of a garage AC unit the Texas heat has been bearable.


Chris at Pro Watercraft Racing flew down and hung out with us for a day. In the videos below you can see the silver ProForce 2.0, above coworker’s built right before my husband’s, in action as well as getting the engine installed. There are A LOT of ProForces in Texas that’s for sure!




So far we’ve managed to get the pump, midshaft bearing, and engine aligned. Fuel tank, engine, and exhaust manifold installed. Oh – and can’t forget the Ferrari Red wrinkle powder coated valve cover. Yeah…he likes the color red if you hadn’t guessed.


Check out the videos below for the first part of the build and my husband’s first ride on the silver ProForce 2.0. This is going to be a fun winter!

Sick build. I unsubbed you when you turned your channel into a lizard show. Glad you are back! Resubbed.
Hahah that lizard business is what just bought my YXZ side by side so they'll still be present in my vids. But fortunately, I'm in the process of developing a channel just for them. Jet skis and motorsports in summer, reptiles in winter.

haha, yeah, valid question
I breed reptiles; specializing in axanthic crested geckos and, hopefully soon, melanistic/axanthic salvators.
Recessive genetic traits take years to produce visuals, so patience plays a huge part. Very rewarding, but it is HOURS each day, and all Saturdays. Fortunately, hatchlings go for thousands.

This thing is insane. I went against my surgeons...recommendation...and took a wee little ride on it.

Very stable, power band is superb, rolls more than the original and more like a Superjet, the Maxx pump stays glued, steers from the nose like the original, tray is like a ballroom dance floor, basically no spray, softer than the white one yet responsive.

All in all, VERY intuitive to ride.

A bit jelly since I'll be riding the two stroke white one once I'm cleared to race again haha. With the ported two stroke power band and aggressive...everything, it is like a bat outta hell.

How is the power 1500 vs the triple?
I have like minutes on the new one, and probably under and hour on the white one, but...pump makes a lot of difference so hard to tell 1 to 1.

The two stroke in the original white ProForce is not stock, so the power band can be pretty brutal. Most of my time on the white one was with a Solas 140 pump that let it roll more, but it tended to slide easier when the turn wasn't just right. The Skat 145 (I think) pump has better hook up, and turns flatter, I never quite got used to it.

The four stroke 2.0 doesn't really have engine mods, and it has a massive Maxx pump. Smoooooth power band, very hooked up, more roll and seemingly less likely to slide. Out of the hole torque is nice.

Where were y'all riding at? I used to live in the clear lake area but since moving out to sugarland I have not found anywhere close to ride.

If you are looking for info about the kawasaki 1500 motor shoot me a message, I did tons of work on them for a while. I noticed yours has a plastic intake manifold on it, what did the motor come out of? The STX never used the plastic intake, only the ultras.

3 Palms MX in Conroe, and it came out of a SXR 1500.
