    96 GTX Flame Arrester Questions

    Just picked up a 96 GTX that needs a little TLC, should be a nice winter project.

    Is it worth it to get rid of the stock air box, install flame arresters and rejet the carbs ? If so do Proks work well on the 800 ? Any jetting recomendations ? The ski will be stock with no other motor mods.

    I will be rebuilding both carbs and replacing the gray fuel lines. When I did my 98 GTXL I installed Proks with outerwears and rejetted as the factory airbox on the 951 is a PITA to deal with.

    Absolutely! I used a kit from Bill O'Neal from watercraft majic on my 951. It was a nice kit, and had the jets and filters. Not sure how much the 787 kit runs, but it's worth it!

    just being able to get to the adjuster screws is well worth it. I and just about everybody else who has a 787 goes that route. you will feel a difference in acceleration once tuned.

    2.0 needles and seats and 75 jets will do the trick. Try starting with ¾ on the lows, ¾ out on mag high, and 7/8 out on pto high. That works very safe in Ontario, but you should do some plug chops to confirm it works for you.
