    1997 zxi750

    worth bringing back to life? It hasn't been started for a while. Last time it was started, it ran well, but that was a few years ago. Is it worth putting a new engine in it? will a larger engine fit? what would this cost to rebuild and get going?

    Kinda thinking as a wave jumper, I don't imagine I would get anywherre near 70mph out of it, so I am thinking something to zip around on from time to time and let my friends ride it when I am on the RXT255is

    its a fun light ski. Rebuild the carbs, get new gas and fuel filter and let it rip.

    now would be the time for me to think about this seriously. I have to bring it from PA to MD in the back of a truck, or modify the SeaDoo trailer a little bit to make it fit. What do you think that an engine rebuild would cost and would it be worth it for an extra ski to bob around on or if I have friends over? Or should I just look for another?

    fun little ski, top end rebuild will be about $250 if crank is sound.

    Narrow hull is a little unstable for big folks, but kids would love it and they are rock solid if minor maintenance is performed

    From my experiences its an unbelievably reliable ski. Its quite unstable, which might be a good thing or bad thing depending on what you're looking for. Its a great wave jumper, and feels very solid on hard impacts.

    Zxi hulls are good hulls. I prefer this over my yammi gp for wave jumping
