Ya I’m not saying XFR is perfect for everyone just a good ski for me. I’m 5’10” 220lb. With the sponsons on it’s honestly a totally different ski. I’ve heard V3 is a good hybrid as well but don’t know first hand.
Could absolutely ride it 10 miles. Mine is not set up with a tank big enough for that but if it had a giant tank it could certainly go 10 miles easily and comfortably. All depends what this guy wants to do I guess. If you want a leasurely cruise to the surf get a new super jet I guess. Coming...
I don’t want to get into a heated debate but I agree there are good all around skis. I can do every FW trick on my XFR I can with with my g2 just not as much height. Slap on the sponsons and maybe change ride plate and it’s absolutely nuts in surf.
To answer OP question, you are definitely not...
I got a $15k payout on my havoc several years ago. It was with safeco. It was a $20k policy, cost $400 a year. They totaled it for cracked bottom on visual carbon but I got to keep it for a $5k salvage value and got 15k. They would not insure my next ski though.
Does not come with it. In this picture it’s just an OEM steering cable end. I typically use a barrel nut and heim joint though. Phil sells them as does high speed or you can cobble it together with stuff from McMaster
How is hydro turf made anyway? Is it as simple as milling a mold, heating it and pressing some Eva foam? I know the cut stuff is different but I don’t even think they make cut turf anymore. I wonder if someone with access to a CNC mill (cough, me) could make their own hydro turf?
Looking at pictures of the flywheel I see two lobes. It should be twin lobe. Stop configuration looks fine. There’s a very good manual for these that covers a lot of this information. I’d strongly suggest giving it a read.
It’s going to be pretty much the same. You could experiment with a little more max timing but it’s generally always 32 max til 5k or 5500 then taper to 19ish at 7k. That’s the same curve for a LOT of motors. More related to the pipe vs the motor from what I hear.
I buy them all the time. Idk which ones went the wrong direction so it’s a bit of a krap shoot. Most recently I bought one for a CBR1100 and it spins the correct direction. I don’t think it’s so much a 4 stroke vs 2 stroke thing. Probably more about what side of the motor the starter is on but...
