    I would be down for some riding!
    I bought it this summer and the kid before me put an impeller and a intake grate on it. The intake grate is a r&d and was wondering if this is actually worth keeping on or if there is a better option out there? If it helps the water i usually ride in is usually choppy water so its nice to be in the water at times. Any other info on the x4/787engine would be greatly appreciated.

    As far as pictures i'm sorry about them since they are lame, but here ya go.

    she appears to be in excellent shape! nice score!

    what info on the 787 are you looking for?

    I guess for starters, have you changed the gray fuel lines out and have you cleaned the carb screens?

    Thank you, She runs great, and i got a lot of use out of her this year.

    I was asking for tips on what to do with it to make it faster/handle better (i'm not the guy who is trying to reach 70mph on a 12 year old ski lol) Just things to help it along.

    btw 951 conversions rule!!

    welcome Laker! airborne said it all in his last post "have you changed the gray fuel lines out and have you cleaned the carb screens?"

    This is a must!! http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=27314
    Also, the r&d grate should be good in chop and the OEM grate isnt bad for speed.

    Check out the 2-stroke section.

    fuel lines were replaced prior to me having it, but I have not checked the screens though, so i'll get on that during the long, cold michigan winter.
    thanks guys!

    *Edit Fuel lines were changed before me, but the more i'm think about it the more i want to say they are probably just the same grey ones as before. I'll find out when i visit the seadoo in storage.

    stock forn is the absolute most reliable. you start adding go fast parts and reliability starts to tumble. you will be doing more wrenching than riding...trust me, I know.
    you can do small things to get an extra MPH or two. change the intake grate, change your exit nozzle and steering nozzle and prop. for handling I would add sponsons, those are the fins on the side of the ski.
    happy riding!

    DUDE, why did you not post earlier that you ride out of Lake Mac. I am out there every single weekend that is nice. I bet I have seen you out, in fact I do remember seeing an SPX like yours, not sure if it was you or not, but I saw one.

    Good ol' big red in the background...makes me miss summer even more =(
