Big Thanks to all here
First of all Thank you all for the advice I got from you guys a few weeks back.
I picked up a 99 Genesis this summer and never having a Polaris watercraft before was a bit of a experience. First ride out I nearly sank because of a Through hull bearing seal.
Once I realized the carrier had been ovaled I shimmed the motor up so that the shaft was straight to the pump assembly. Second time out I had a good hour ride then blew the drive coupler. that was a freaking nasty mess. While waiting for my new drive coupler ( came of a sl750 - used) My trailer got tipped up and my exit nozzle smashed on the driveway.
John Z. came thru with a whole new assembly and was shipped from us to Canada in 3 days . ( amazing to deal with thx for linking me to him K447)
This long weekend I put 8 hours on my machine trouble free aside from a few sore muscles and some wind burn from doing 40 - 55 MPH the entire time. Had the time of my life.
A buddies Seadoo was doing 70+ MPH is there anything in the polaris world that does that or close to ? I think he had a super charger on it. any mods out there for stuff like that?

Yup... this is a good group... that's why I'm still here.
AND... I also picked up a Genesis this summer. For a big machine... it sure does turn well, and it's much faster than I expected it to be.

Glad to hear you have it running well now.
There are some 70+mph Polaris around. Several ways to get there, either by boosting the 2-stroke (tuned exhaust pipes, higher compression, bigger displacement), or converting to a 4-stroke engine.
If you really want to surprise your friend, find another Genesis hull and install A Sea-Doo 4-Tec engine in the hull. You will have the fastest FOUR PERSON PWC around
