How much Thrust? any engineers willing to help me out?
Can anyone help me out?
I'm trying to figure out on these 4tec skis What is the maximum thrust pushed out the rear? better yet any one have the formula to figure it out?

Kawasaki use to state pump thurst in lbs in their specs. Maybe could start there and figure something out. Beats me how they came up with the number though.

so a 2 stroke 2011 Kawasaki Jet Ski 800 SX-R is rated at 700 lb of thrust. but I don't know the hp rating but its a start.
2012 Kawasaki Jet Ski Ultra 300X 300 hp, 1,769 lbs thrust.

So is 6 lbs of thrust per Hp about right?

nozzle size will also affect thrust as the smaller the reducer the greater the thrust. Think you would have to measure (how I do not know) then apply some sort of formula. Seams like a lot of factors will affect it. Good luck. Let us know what if anything you figure out.
