    Polaris power gas valves

    With all the Polaris snowmobile power valves out there, why can't it be an easy conversion for the watercraft??
    any ideas??

    Nothing to mount them to, unless you're using the MSX cylinders. You're also not going to gain that much from valves...a little down low, but nothing up top...might even lose a few RPM on top with them, since they disrupt the airflow slightly.

    I have the cable powered valves now, so there are already mounting threads,

    Oh, ok so you're talking changing the cable valves to gas valves on a Pro785...Not adding gas valves to a motor that doesn't have valves.

    What ski did those valves come off of? You need the blue cap ones that are adjustable. If I remember right they stopped using them in 02 but I could be wrong on that

    I was just showing some polaris 800 snowmobile valve pictures I found on Ebay,
    with everyones polaris knowledge I thought we could come up with some easy fix,
    $600-$800 for a set of gas vaves is a little much,

    for sure, you can make them for $200. I bought mine off ebay for $20 a peice delivered to my door. Buy yourself a rebuild kit from polaris. You also have to use your stock valve and cut a groove it for it to work. drill a couple holes and tap them and that about the bulk of it. It is easier typed than done but. When you buy your valves make sure you get the whole assembly not just the valve portion
