    Welcome to GreenHulk!

    Your better off checking on xh20 or pwctoday... Those sites are more aimed towards stand ups... We're reffered to as the "couch" guys here

    welcom to the forum.

    this brings back some good memories for me.... yes, i have put a yamaha 701 in my 550 back in 1998 the ski was crazy fast 64mph with a 22 deg stright pitch prop. if i new then what i know now that ski would have run every bit of 70+mph. my ski would beat seadoo xp's with group k sleeper kits.

    i had to do losts of fab work and welding to make it fit but it can be done. i dont think anyone offers a conversion plate for this.

    i also put a yamaha 760 in a x2 in 1999 and the guy still has it and rides it today.


    thanks, erik

    ya it reminds me of back in the 90's when Art from Engine Tech put a raider 1100 motor in his blaster!! never really took the time to tune it, but it was a rocket before it was parted
