    Blown base gasket- Recomended upgrades while doing the job???

    Im looking for any ideas on preformance upgrades to my 97 XP 787 while I am doing the blown base gasket. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I love this little ski and it hauls ass but as we all know, the faster the better. Thanks for the help.

    Doing a base gasket, not really much unless you want to do port work on the cylinders/exhaust ports or change the head. I would start with rejetting your carbs and adding flame arrestors, maybe an intake and then an impeller.
