    Bought me a 2006 GTI SE(pics)

    Hey guys and girls,
    I just bought me a seadoo gti se. I have already got 8hrs on it. I love it. The new hull design handles like a dream. I love the tight turns or the ability to cut loose and 360 when I want. The gti se comes with mirrors, floor mats, step up ladder, speedometer or the regular gti. I am very impressed. I can have 2 people on the pwc and pull 2 tubing with hardly any loss of performance. I pulled my Dad barefoot skiing at the lake last week. The top speed so far is 54, but I havent had it at WOT yet do to being under the 10hour break in. It states 130hp but feels more than that. I have ridden an RXP before to compare. It is by no means as powerful as the RXP, but feels more powerful then the stated 130hp. Seadoo states it is a detuned version of the 155hp engine with more torque at the lower rpm's. I will have pics and video up soon.

    Like any guy I like going fast. I was wondering what mods I can do to my new ski to improve performance and handling. I was on a budget, thats why I didnt buy an rxp/rxt.

    Also Worx make a intake grate for the new 06 gti/gti se. Do ya'll think worx is a good brand and company that manufacture upgraded parts.

    One more thing. At the end of the day when i come home form the lake I usually have about 2-4 cups of water in my hull. I do spins and jumps and mess around with my ski. Is that a normal amount of water to have in the hull?

    Thanks for your answer in advance.

    Welcome to the forum! I love that hull too and have always dreamed of dropping my 300+ HP internals into one

    They are 40 pounds lighter than an RXP and 150 pounds lighter than an RXT

    Yes, its normal to have some water in the hull after riding.

    If you open and close the tabs that hold the lid on the waterproof front storage compartment too many times you will find that they will break off. This is especially true when the weather gets cooler and the plastic becomes more brittle. Also be careful using the flimsy reverse lever, because it can easily break. Otherwise good luck with your new ski and ride safe !

    Yeah I could already tell that the tabs are going to break. I reinforced them with some plastic epoxy when I first got it. They have held up well so far. I try not to use the Reverse handle so much but when I do I am careful.

    I am wanting to ge tthe Worx intake grate ans sponsons, or should I wait until Riva makes them?

    Anyway, thanks for the replies.

    I seem to think that the Riva sponsons from the RXP/RXT will also fit the GTi ???
