    1. Mill stock head for 150 PSI
    2. F/A and rejet
    3. Remove 38's and add 44's
    4. Pro-tec shortie ride plate
    5. Cut center bar's out of the intake grate.
    6. Swap prop to A solas 13/19
    7. VF2 reeds...

    or...convert her over to the 1200 jugs =0)

    OK so im still learning a little bit about the ski world so not to sound dumb but what do you mean by "F/A and rejet", and "Remove 38's and add 44's"? But thanks for the advice

    The advice that you got from Mpeavler is pretty sound. "F/A" means flame arrestors... basicly free flowing air filters. He also suggest to "rejet" your carburetors or perhaps getting bigger diameter carbs capable of flowing more fuel. I think the 44's would make you quicker compared to your stock 38's, but not so much faster as to justify the price.

    If you increase your compression with a milled head, you get more potential power due to an increase in RPM. Rejetting the carbs give you more fuel and flame arrestors allows for more air which is what you will need with more power.

    Going from an 1100 to 1200 cylinders just increases cubic inches which is just another way to get Hp.

    If you go to the "old school" section, you will probably get more hits on your thread, but the advice you have gotten so far is on track.

    Do some research on that 1100 hull. It is unstable. It is a great straight line high speed boat in smooth water, but it does not handle as well as the GP series Yamahas. They can be very dangerous at high speeds in rough water conditions. Some people describe it's ride as a boat that has a tendency to "nose hunt", meaning the bow may dart from side to side.

    Hope this helps

    wow that was a steal at 600.00 with trailer, i just payed 1500 for mine with trailer with unknown hours but in excellent running condition. i noticed you had mentioned your seat had a tear , mine did too, hydro turf makes a new seat skin and it was cheap and rather easy to install.

    Thanks for the help Salty and yea it does have a tear but luckily I know someone that can fix it for cheap. He just did the seat on my fiances wave runner 500.. added an inch of foam and recovered it with marine vinyl for $50...

    Also I believe that the oil injection is too rich cause it has a slight smoke. Do you have any advice or just block it off and do premix?
