    Did I do good '00 GSX $300!

    Hey guys I'm new here and wanted some help. I just bought a complete 2000 GSX RFI for $300.00 with trailer. The motor is bad but the ski is otherwise in very decent shape. It has the 787 engine. Is it financially feasible to upgrade to the 951 or is this a major undertaking? should I just stick to the 787 and if so who would you guys suggest for picking up a reman motor? thx. Martin

    Keep the 787 and go with SBT.

    welcome to GH!

    first off nice score! second I would stick with the 787. its a huge PIA to switch to a 951. rebuild it, get it running good and upgrade the ski.

    Id do an SBT only if you are parting with it...there are mixed reviews on SBT with their engine performance and longevity/ reliability, but its up to you.

    Buy the 2 year warranty version and you'll be good.

    I was told the Rotax reman is no longer available from BRP? If that is not true, it would be their reman long block I would purchase. Because it's not a reman, it has brand-new sleeves, OEM stock bore pistons, and all OEM parts. Well worth the difference over a SBT product.

    just asking ,because I too have heard the same about sbt, why not go with them? nobody has ever elaborated and I may need 2 787's? what about just their true and welded cranks?

    If you wanted to upgrade the performance of the rfi I think that your limited to only a prop, milling the head,pump,nozzles. You can't do anything with the rfi or add aftermarket air filters. That's what i was told when i was looking at a 99 gsx rfi. I would rather have a carb on my ski's over rfi, but that is just me.

    Great buy on the ski!!!

    I am going to need a 787 this spring. My dealer told me to stay away from SBT. But my neighbor has a SBT 787 in his 97 XP for 3 years now with nothing but plug changes. Any horror stories from SBT??
