    If you should find they are necessary and need them I have a set I believe.

    I'm going to say no just because the conversion guys cut them out with the liner to fit the bigger 4 stroke motors. At the same time I have no idea if the newer 4 stroke skis have them. I'm sure having them though would definitely help take some pressure off the others.

    Can you get by without them? Probably. Will you ever need them? Never know - until it happens.

    I left mine in when I replaced my motor, they don't weigh but a couple ounces, could be helpful someday. Regardless, I have a set from my partout boat available.

    They are there to keep the engine from hitting the bottom of the ski from stringer flex, (jumping waves will do it). Japan thinks of every pre-caution it seems. They do get in the way when you drop a bolt or tool in the bottom of the ski, under the engine...my fingers have touched them more times than I can count.

    LOL - yeah I've felt them before when looking for small parts too. Usually I just take a ride and it ends up in the back by the midshaft eventually

    The metal part of the mounts are still there. The rubber is gone off of both of them.
