    Just added a MSX 140

    I just picked up a nice 03 msx 140. When i first took a look at it the ski ran like crap. It had some Autolite plugs in it. As soon as I put the correct NGKs in it the ski runs awesome. I really like the feel of it. Sometimes you can find something for a good price that only needs a good set of plugs.

    Some people really don't believe how important the correct spark plugs are for these Ficht engines.

    NGK PZFR6H only - no substitutes.

    I am a believer. The plugs that it had in it were brand new(cross referenced) Autolite. The previous owner Had been using those plugs since he had it. No wonder the performance wasn't there and he just wanted to get rid of it. Me personally am getting rid of the carb skis I own. Don't get me wrong, the pro 1200 is the best ski I have ever owned but I am moving on learning the ficht stuff. I also have aquired some tools to help troubleshoot them.

    Do something different. Put a Ficht motor in the Pro 1200 hull

    You already have the motor. Just need a Ficht wire harness, Ficht heads+EMM+injectors, Ficht stator+flywheel and the Ficht fuel pump. And some other Ficht bits...

    Pro 1200 performance with Ficht fuel economy
