    GPRFX

    I found a sweet low hour FX140 that the hull was trashed but the motor is in fine. My wifes ski 2003 GP1300r just blew up after 300+ hours of loyal service. So what to do? Its a perfect time to switch it over to a 4 stroke. Plan is simple...... Pull out the 1300 motor and electronics install the FX140 motor and electronics maybe a prop and angle the ride plate a little. My wife ski runs 68-70 now so i am hoping for the same we shall see. pictures to come.
