    GP with Kawi ULTRA 260X

    Can I put a Kawasaki Ultra 260X motor in my GP 1300R hull? I know anything is possible to a degree but I was wondering if this just sounds dumb. The reason for this ski in particular is that I have found a wrecked one for cheap and you all know how hard and expensive it is to find a 4 stroke these days.

    Haha!! Hey Beerdart My brothers (saltysteve and Randy with the gpsho) told me to talk to you about it anyway. What do you think about utilizing the Ultra pump and will I run into any other major issues?

    ought ough!! 2 plane mechanics conjuring up a build!...
    BDE, can just about make any thing work, and work well!
    sounds very interesting and a lot of custom parts...
    will the 260X engine even fit in the hull?

    Anything is possible the drive line would be the hard part if the motor will fit.

    Makes sense - What is the best way of measuring the motor to figure out if it will fit?

    The placement of the PTO in relationship to the mounts and the bottom of the engine is key.

    Propeller Take Off. Or where the driveshaft connects.
