    Trim System Information

    In order for me to get a bit more clarity on trim systems, I wanted to ask a few questions that I am having trouble with. 1. What type of cable is used with a basic trim system? Is it like a steering cable or more like a throttle cable? 2. Through the hull, what type of fitting is used to keep...

    Vapor Honing

    I snapped a quick photo last night of the 550SX cases I threw in my buddies vapor cabinet. If you haven’t heard of these, it’s basically a pressure washer and media blaster combined. It removes no material but super polishes the surface. I’ve been running this on all sorts of engines for years...

    Interview with Larry Rippenkroeger Vintage Jet Ski

    This isn't a picture or video but I thought this was the most appropriate category for "media" My brother sent me this the other day and it had me hanging on every word. Larry even talks about how he helped develop the original Superjet completely in secret, flying to Japan monthly to test...

    440/550 Engine Service

    Im in the process of rebuilding a 1990 Kawasaki JS440 and I was wondering who is the "go-to" for 440/550 cylinders? I have experience on my 701 with Harry Klemm at GroupK and the results were fantastic. Any other 440/550 guru's out there? I have other 550's/750's I will be working on in the...

    Superjet Hood Drains

    I’m not sure if this works for a RN but I found that on my 1995 Yamaha Superjet my vent hoses on the inside of my hood no longer fit when running a Factory B-Pipe and a girdled style cylinder head. I could get the starboard side hose to clear almost but I still didn’t like it. The port side hose...

    New Engine, Running Issues

    So i've been able to get some hours on my ski and have it tuned in pretty well! I'm really loving the new pump the most, Its really night and day hook up from my old stock (and probably worn out) pump. One thing i'm having trouble with is after I fall off the ski doing whatever, It bogs a bit...

    New Exhaust Tube

    I have a few extra parts I’m not going to use, they are all new and haven’t seen any water. 1 - Jetmaniac long exhaust hose, Green, doesn’t quite reach in a stock Superjet hull, I think this is for shorter aftermarket skis but you can use a coupler and extension hose to make it fit. I can give...
