    New ski, New beginnings!!!

    Hey guys as most of yall know I sold my 1200r with triples this past year and purchased a 2005 yamaha 1300r fully stock with 35 hours on it. Kris and I have been talking about everything to do to this ski to make it as fast as possible. This past weekend I pulled the head and the cylinders out to send off to get ported and milled. The weekend of Mar. 26th kris and I will be putting all the modifications in the ski. The following mods are what we will be installing in the ski:

    Riva free flow exhaust: $120
    Riva E.F.I control unit: $380
    PPK: $80
    Riva Power Filter Flame Arrestor: $90
    Riva D-Plate: $75
    Solas Dynafly 14/20 Impeller: $205
    VF3 Reeds: $500
    1200 Intake Grate: $100
    Jim's plate: $450
    Cylinder Porting: $650
    Milled Head: $170
    4-degree keyway: $55
    Pump tunnel reinforcement: $175

    Not having to hear Pat (YamahaPat) say I have a "little boy" ski anymore: PRICELESS

    List is not bad.

    It's all about tuning the hull, that is where you can lose some speed but at the same time gain something if
    setup right.

    We will probably be able to take it on the lake too break it in then see what she can do.

    Yea thats very true. tuning the hull means a lot. So you think we will be able to take it out on the lake the weekend of Mar. 26th? Kris didn't seem to think we would be able to
