    Not nuts at all. I like wrenching more than I do riding

    I love that red FZS

    i don't know if you caught this but you need a bigger trailer or find a way to move your "ski hitch" up.


    my trailor came adjustable from the dealer but i really advise you go back and check things out. The way your ski is Hangin off will stress them boards and it's a hazard for long trips as well.

    Other than that, YOUR DOIN GREAT
    WITH THE MODS and choice of ski. Seadoo Rxp-X was my choice and no looking back!

    Great job with the mods but I'm not sure how much pitching the prop to a 13/23 is going to help. I would personally go with a 15/23. Opening up the leading edge helps a lot with the stock prop.
