    Removing Top Deck? (1987 JS550 Rebuild/Engine Swap)

    It happens. Back in the day I was mid-race on my limited sxr. I was pretty sure I was getting zapped when I grabbed the throttle and I was right. After the race I popped the hood and found my water injection module was giving my hand the tingles. It was capable of running 2 solenoids but I was...

    550 Winter Project - 750 Pump Swap and Engine Questions

    Thanks for the feedback. I’ve done a few wide tray 550’s and have wayyyy too many hours of fiberglass under my belt. This project is nothing new aside from the 750 engine/pump swap which is why I inquired about what power is best to maximize use of the pump. I still have my SXR’s to ride so I’m...

    Removing Top Deck? (1987 JS550 Rebuild/Engine Swap)

    Well I am glad I found this thread as I am embarking on a 550 winter project adventure over here. I haven't laughed like this in a while, thanks for the entertainment and information! This build is awesome! I have been thinking the exact same thing regarding the ebox, most components on the new...

    550 Winter Project - 750 Pump Swap and Engine Questions

    The past few years I have been working out of town during the week and am quite bored at night, especially in the fall and winter. The house I currently rent has a garage so I thought I'd get myself a jet ski project to stay busy and stay away from the TV, so I picked up a 1990 550SX from a...

    Reducing Bpipe stinger diameter?

    This is the same concept for the stinger insert that R&D made for the SXR. An extra hose clamp has kept my stinger insert in place for many years without issue. Interested to hear your results, especially if you try different diameters...we messed with our diameters 1mm at a time. Fun stuff.

    WTB: Octane Start Button Bracket

    The 650SX has the vertical start/stop button and I have considered that....I may actually leave it where it is on the left side and wire in an additional start stop switch so others can still use the "normal" button as the ski is ridden by others at times. Its not my ski so I kind of want to...

    WTB: Octane Start Button Bracket

    He cannot use his left hand at all so this wouldn't work, unless you're suggesting mounting it on the right hand side. I'd like him to be able to use one hand to hit the start button and apply throttle at once. I'm not sure there is the room to have both the SS switch and throttle on the right...

    WTB: Octane Start Button Bracket

    This is a long shot. I am looking for the Start button bracket on the right hand side of the bars. I'd take the button and wire harness as well. There is a young man in our group who does not have use of his left hand and has been riding his 650SX this summer like a CHAMP, but he has trouble...

    Custom/Hybrid Mini Monster

    I’ve been a follower for quite some time and enjoy your posts. The questions I had are just about the only things I couldn’t sort out…aside from where you get all the cool hardware :) Unless I’m confusing my aftermarket pumps. It’s been a minute…

    Custom/Hybrid Mini Monster

    This ski/build is awesome. For your exhaust and scupper tubes, what are you using to hold them in place? Is this just an epoxy? If so, what kind? I'll be doing something similar soon and wont have the real estate for a flange to bolt up to the hull. Also curious if you could share the...

    Times be changing....

    Life has taken me away from this site, but I remember the day it was launched. I was so pumped to be an OG member. As a former Riot Radio member, I loved getting the heads up on this. Good luck, Darrin. This site is and was a savior for the little guys. Also, BK, Whats up MF!!
