    My reluctant SeaDoo mechanic...

    Ok, so I'm thinking it's time to start modding my stock '01 GTX. I want to start with removing the stock restrictive air box but my mechanic has reservations about it. He recommends leaving it as is because it's his preference. What's the big deal? What mechanical concerns can there be that has him spooked? Seems like EVERYBODY goes with less restrictive air filtration.

    Ofcourse he'll do if it I want it (and I do) but what's with the hesitation to do so????

    In my opinion If done right you would feel the diference. Just need the correct set up (air and fuel). Not dificult for starts. And also will gain space to work on the area removing the stock airbox.

    So go ahead enjoy... !!

    Sorry about that-- Your avitar looks exactly like my 2001 GTX di-- blue and silver. Yes, you can install open flame arresters on your carb model 951, but you will also need to change the jetting in your carbs-- 85 lows and 167.5 highs w/ 65 gram spring (or 95 gram spring w/ 2.3 N/S) seems to work for a number of members-- you will need to play w/ the screw settings too.

    Sounds like it can be a number of reasons for his reservations to mod your boat. It can range from being easier to troubleshoot a problem with a stock set up to a liability issue.

    removing the stock airbox can lead to water injestion..and a host of other issues. Personally, I don't do mods like that or even work on skis with the airboxes removed as nothing good has ever come of getting involved with skis like that ( for me anyway)

    case in point, a good customer brought me his recently purchased 98 gtx..fully modded he says..jus get it started..battery was dead.

    Long story short..on the last outing...the ski was flipped and the engine was FULL of water..he bought it from a neighbor without seeing it run ( he had heard it running in the guys driveway last year). needless to say, I got caught in the middle of the entire mess. do some mods to the sirbox for better flow ( if you actually need too) but keep the f/a and most of the carb system stock.

    Hopping up an 11 year old ski is likely to cause some problems anyway..specially on a 951. Good reading at group k on the 951 tuners page.
