    F12x to r12x conversion!!!

    Hey everyone,

    can anyone share some knowledge on the honda f & r12x. I would like to know if a swap over from a complete f12x ski is possible into a bare r12x hull engine ways or what else is needed? I've noticed the layout of water box and exhaust/turbo pipe work may be different.

    Thanks

    I think the main differences are the r has reverse and only a 2 seater? Could be wrong

    My 2003 F12x had reverse and the nose design is different and the whole hull design is different.

    Yes the r and f both have reverse. I'm also aware that the f hull and r hull are different in design but the engine looks identical in both. I am sure the motor will fit both but what bits are not the same. The water box isn't and the turbo pipe work is not the same.

    Anyone???

    Ps nice skis

    Not my ski's...just pictures I found online to show the side by side difference. I sold off my F12x several months ago. As for your other questions...I don't know, sorry.

    Not sure I follow ur question . u want to turn ur 3 seater into a 2 seater? Or r u wanting the performance of a R withur F? Or what . the hull is the only difference . same motor same ic, same exhaust (tho in different location)

    No I have an r12 hull, I'm wanting to rebuild it but I'm unsure if parts from the f12x will fit. The air intake is compleatly different as I've just found out. If parts are in different locations then surely the pipework to those parts must be different also. Wouldn't like to buy a damaged f12x for all the inside bits and find out they will not fit the r hull if that makes more sense.

    There ya go . now we r on same page . I'm sure it can be done . tho it might be cheaper to find a f12x hull than to buy the odd&ends u will need to put guts of f12x into r12x hull... In terms of the intake and exhaust . I would use just a filter (no air box) and do a open exhaust (probably be cheaper than buying the stock parts ) + it will remove some unnecessary heat form inside hull also(eventually saving u the ecu /heat issue some r having )

    R12x has trim and the F12x does not.
