    900 VS 1100 crank

    I read a statement from years ago that the ZXI900 and 1100 share the same crank. Any truth to that, do they indeed have the same stroke? Kawasaki showed different part numbers, but that doesn't mean anything.

    I think I answered my own question. Since SBT shows a different number for their reman cranks, I'm going to say they are not the same.

    Check with Atlantic jet sports is is a bit more but u can get your crank recon w Japanese bearings and a piece of mind that it's not sbt garbage. I had my 150 crank rebuilt by their shop and it runs and great. I also made the "just limp it to the pier" mistake

    Thanks for the recommendation. Probably going to use someone local, was just looking on SBT site for a reference.

    I would have made the same mistake, too. I guess that if it starts to run badly, the best thing to do, if you've got the Kawasaki tool kit with you, would be to remove the seat and pull the plugs on the water and have a look inside (if you can see anything). If you can't see, hold your thumb over each spark plug hole and crank it. It'll be hot so you might have to wear a glove or something. If you find a jug that doesn't have compression, ground that spark plug before riding it back to shore.

    If you don't have the tool kit, you could probably try grounding each spark plug wire individually until you find the one that doesn't make any difference in how it runs, then ground that one.
