    Need help with Sea-Doo GSX RFI

    A buddy of mine has a minty Sea-Doo GSX RFI. I believe it's a 2000 model year. Anyhow, he wants to mod it a little. I told him the motor was a no-go due to the RFI, but maybe we could do some handling tweaking.

    I know it has trim on it, but we would like to do the following possibly:

    pump wedge
    rideplate
    sponsons
    intake grate

    Can anybody point me in the right direction for getting these parts, and, are all of them even available for this craft?

    I have Sea-Doo experience, but it's been years, and I don't know what parts are interchangable between models anymore, or, where to get them.

    Thanks in advance.

    A wedge lifts the hull, a grate sucks it back down, so using both would not be too wise. Aftermarket ride plates don't make any improvements for this model too. I would get a Worx Grate and Sponsons, and leave the rest alone. He'll be very happy with it.

    Yup, I have the 97 carb 785 gsx & the worx grate & sponsons are the way to go.
    leave the stock ride plate on & forget the wedge, it will make you porpoise more.
    As for the prop, the concord SF-CD 15/23 is a good replacement for a stock/limited setup too. I did back to back tests on the stock 12/25 prop & the 15/23 on the same body of water within the same hour & the 15/23 revved 100 rpm more & was faster than the stock.
