    Parts Supplier

    Who is a good, cheap, reliable parts supplier on the web? I'm in the process of rebuilding a 787 and a need a few things. Any suggestions on who to buy from? So far, watercraftsuperstore.com and Parker Yamaha are the cheapest. I don't want to get screwed by a crappy online retailer. Been there and $63 dollars later, done that. BTW, I need a set of rings, wrist pin bearings and a complete gasket set.

    Just an update, I found a comlpete gasket set on Ebay for 69.99. I believe it is a JetLyne brand or something like that. Does anyone know anything about them?

    Cometic or OEM is all that I'd use. Save a dollar, cost you hundreds more later.

    seadoo-parts.com has an address in NV yet the returns go to NY, Sounds a bit strange to me. I'm not sure how much real OEM stuff they have, because they are pushing the WSM crap real heavy and I wouldn't use that junk in my lawnmower.

    IF you local dealer is a putz then:

    Parker is ok

    You also have to factor in shipping/time ( not only on over $99 free shipping)

    IF you want to talk to a real person and get real OEM stuff just call PPG up 954-929-1636

    Thats my opinion, because that's what you asked for, LOL

    he never mentioned anything about oem.
    maybe he's building it on a budget, and i had bought many piston kits for other skis and seadoo-parts have never let me down, and if you read, they have warehouses more than just one.
    i havent had any problems with their pistons, maybe you have due to improper gapping/installation. my machinist is a bit pricey but does a kick ass job, but my p.o.s. pistons are still holding the 145 psi on both after many hours of hard bashing.
    in fact i'l be ordering some next week.

    give WSM a try, dont knock it until you try it, it will save you money.
    2 strokes need to be rebuilt anyways after periods of use, i'm guesssing every 150-200 hours.
