1999 XP Limited...motor swap to the 787?
I'm currently rebuilding my the 951 in my 2000 GSX Millennium Edition.
I like the 951 for the heavy three seat GXS but I am wondering if I can, without changing the motor mounts, put a smaller 787/800 in to my 1999 XP Limited.
I think the 787 may be a better motor for reliability and I'd make the trade even though it be overall a slower Seadoo.
What do ya think?
Thanks in advance for your reply,

theres more to change than you think. you will have to change your pump also for a smaller one as well as the prop. you will also need the electronics too that will no work with your gauges. just go find an older ski like a 97-99XPL I think those are the years for the 787

I wish my 97 xp had a 951 sometimes. I hear they're really unreliable though.

the 951 IS reliable. you just have to take care of it like anything else. just dont get the white 951 thats the unreliable one

I agree with Airborne, the 951 is a reliable motor. When well maintained, they run for a long time. I have one in a 99 gtxl that just needed a top end at around 250 hours. With rebuilt carbs, no grey fuel lines, premium fuel, good synthetic oil and regular maintenance they are reliable.

Use good 2 stroke oil and will run longer
If I had the money I would put a 4 tech motor in one. The one on youtube hauls ass. 80 or so. It is most likely allot of work and $$$.
