    Rec Pro1200

    I decided I would go ahead and start my project thread.. I'm healing from a broken femur from MX so I have some time before the Texas Heat hits to get my new Pro 1200 ready for the lake. I picked this boat up from my shop as a trade in for a steal but it had been sitting for a few years. It has 60 hours with great compression and the motor appears to never have been opened up. With the lack of run-time in the last few years the fuel that is in it is dark and nasty with some gunk here and there. It does have some "spider" cracks where the registration numbers where but does not appear to be serious.

    My List:

    Renthal Bars
    Sponsons of some sort
    V-Force Reeds/Cages
    Fix cracked seat latch (Thanks TXPro1200 (Doug))
    Swap carbs for Primer Ready/ No Choke/ 65 Jet Carbs (Thanks again Doug)
    Prok F/As
    Swap my Impeller with the one off my Virage TX
    Replace all the stock fuel lines
    New Registration Numbers
    Primer Kit (mounted where the fuel valve was)
    Put the MFD in the Glove Box Lid
    Got the last set of hydro turf pads from Parts Unlimited but the ones on it are decent enough so I will put them back for spares.

    This will be my list to get my boat on the lake and shake things down.. Within the next few months as time and money allow:

    Jet Trim Seat Cover
    Re-Cut or Aftermarket Domes for 92 oct
    Re-Flash Computer for 92oct
    Maybe a ride plate


    As of today 3/11/2010:
    Renthal Bars Are On
    Choke cable and Lever are removed.
    Carbs and Intake are waiting on the bench for my reeds to come in the mail
    I ran the tubing and wires into the glove box for the mfd but havent cut the lid yet.
    I have removed or at least measured the fuel lines to start replacing them. Will start that on sunday when my work week is over
    Removed the fuel valve and cleaned up the fuel/water seperator. (it had some old gas goo in it)


    Hopefully my reeds should come in the first of next week and I can slap them in and put the carbs and intake back on with new fuel line.

    And a few more... I added some garage pictures because I am thrilled I got the garage cleaned up, picked up some new to me work benches, and took some finished projects back to their owners garages.

    And one last one... Where the primer is:

    I have a question as well. The fuel fill hose is "torn" at the clamp on the tank itself. Is there a source for these still? It looks as though the clamp was on there super tight and over time the hose split around the edge of the clamp.

    I wonder if the Virage "batwing" ride plate would help with tracking and a bit more speed?

    That's some nice stuff you got there Treybiz.



    So how long are/have you been laid up with that broken femur?

    Thanks,

    I snapped my femur about 6 weeks ago. Two weeks on the couch and used all my vacation time for the year which sucked. I started walking without a cane or crutches last week and also started physical therapy. I should be ready to hit the lake when the water is getting nice and warm

    Update Today

    Reeds are In
    Intake and Carbs are On
    Primer Lines are ran and hooked up.
    Replaced all the fuel lines except for the "vent" line out of the Fuel Sender/Tank
    F/A adapters are on.
    Sponsons should ship in the next few days and stock ones are pulled off.
    New Spark Plugs

    Just need a Battery and F/As and I will be about set parts wise.

    Anybody have any battery recomendations other than a stock replacement Yuasa?

    The one they have listed is big and expensive even at cost. Is there anther alternative that people are having sucess with?

    Gracias,
    Trey

    battery

    go with a dry cell,they cost a little more to start but hold up way better than the wet cells.i might be interested in the stock sponsons for some speed runs to see if the race ones scrub any speed flat out.what about the stock petals and cages?
