On a different note:……

Those of you that have built a Yamasaki, how do you get the coupler cover on? It looks like i have to take the tank out and pull the motor forward to get it under the Yamaha Ebox. Last thing i want to do after getting it aligned!

Maybe i can just take the Ebox out and put it in? I’m leaving it off for this trip! When i get home I’ll address the situation! What are your thoughts?

Well, I shredded a tire about 10 miles into my 75 mile to Vermont. A few phone calls and a great friend later i made it back home. Couldn’t get the tire off to swap with the spare it was so shredded! Ski in my bed and trailer in his bed. Sucky day yesterday!

Going to put the coupler cover on today. Thanks for the advise!

Took the ski out Sunday. Worked all the bugs out of it! Absolutely is one bas ass girl! Pulls better then my buddy’s FX1! Only problem I’m getting some water intrusion. No idea where.. I’m going to fill the hull with water and see if its leaking out/in somewhere. Hopefully its just a bad hood seal! I dont think my stock bilge is working either. Maybe a mud dobber nest in there from sitting a decade without a pump in it. Or the pin hole in the anti siphon thing is clogged. We will find out soon hopefully.

Any updates on yours sexpanther?

I spoke with Robin. I didn’t specify when i ordered the kit i was also doing a 750 pump conversion. If i had he would had sent me a milled down engine coupler to allow the motor to slide further back. SUPER nice guy! He put the correct one in the mail within a hour I had a tracking number free of charge even though it was my bad. Will definitely do business with him again! Thanks for all the brainstorming responses! Should have it Tuesday. Too bad I’m in Conn and the ski is in Vermont!

Well, I think I may have the exact problem you did with the coupler.. perhaps ordering the 750 pump kit with the 701 conversion and the ada coupler selected is not enough information for Robin to know I’m using them together. Maybe I’m missing something. Splines seem all the way seated in my impeller. image.jpg

I used Rhaas for the bed kit and black market for the pump conversion. The pump conversion went super smooth! I’d buy from them again even tho its a bit more money.

Figured it out!
I have surf jet Louie tubbies on it. On the exhaust side the tubbie had a gap in it on the bottom chine. The 5200 pulled out! I’m sure at speed it was opening up and scooping the water in.
I re patched it. Hopefully it holds till the end of season. Then ill remove them, foam the inside(should have done that first!) and reinstall them with bolts(not screws) and bond them in! Glad I didn’t lose it!

Every time i called he picked up. Maybe he has COVID! That’s the general excuse everyone uses these days! Ohh, because of COVID…….BLA BLA BLA..
I had a good experience with him and he jumped right on it and sent me the correct coupler that day express shipping. I’d say get some regular couplers and try that. At least on the engine side!

Has anyone run the breadbox pipe with this swap? Super close but hits ebox with it on that side. I flopped ebox mount but it looks like my battery won’t fit with it that way. Thoughts? Maybe cut down the bracket behind ebox mounting bracket? image.jpg
