1st time 550sx owner-need advice
Hi there. Was recently given a kawa 550sx and would hate to see it go to waste. Need advice as this is my 1st stand up ski owned. What is it hould i look at and what minor mods can i do? I see that the throttle
is the trigger type already. Have a few questions if you guys can help me out.
1. I dont see any key, does this mean tht if i fall off, the ski will circle
back my way?
2. I assume this is a 2 stroke ski but do not see a oil reservoir, are they auto premix? What us a good ratio?
3. Does it have a built in bilge pump?
Jsut a few questions thanks. What else is there to consider in owning this ski?
Thanks in advance.

quick checks, spark plugs, look at impeller and wear ring gap, edges of blades,
fuel lines and carb- my first upgrades, scoop style intake grate, longer ride plate and definately handle bars, list goes on, and on
-ski should circle, if steering cable is free and H-bars dont hit side of ski
-correct, these are 2 stroke, so get yourself ratio rite from any motorcyle shop run it 40:1 gas/oil
- bilge runs off jet nozzle, but an electric backup is good idea, (cheap insurance)
