    04 rxp to mod or update ?

    Hi guys I have a 04 215 rxp recently sorted some issues with it with great thanks to the knolagable people on here the history of this ski are a little grey with talk of later sc and some kind of exhaust mods but unsure what std exhaust looks like so no idea realy lol. I'm new to skis but quite mec skilled and I have not checked the valves as of yet the ski has 212 hrs and gps speed of 69.1 mph on good water with half tank and still has working opas.
    now for my questions I'm a bit of a speed freak and wondering about options in getting into mid 70s or more $ wise what are my options in regard to later model 260hp ski or modding the current ski
    thanks in advance Shane

    Quick and fairly cheap mods are upgrading to the x supercharger and 42 lb injectors. That with a 15-20 prop and removing the opas will give you good mid and top speed. I did that to my buddies 06 215 rxp and it woke it up.

    Thanks looks like I'm modding it sooner than I thought after a play in a few big waves I've ripped off the reverse bucket and smashed the steering nozzle bad timing over New Years and every one shut up shop

    Hi Shane, best thing to do is the X model supercharger and 42 lb injectors. I have these in the store as a combo deal
    http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...oducts_id=2435

    You will then need to install this impeller
    http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...products_id=12

    Don't forget you will need to install a new wear ring with the impeller.
    Here's the OEM wear ring
    http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...roducts_id=518

    But I would go with the after market stainless steel wear ring
    http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...roducts_id=401

    While the pump is out install this pump seal
    http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...oducts_id=2295

    Hope that helps! There's lots more available if you want to go even faster

    Thanks!
    Jerry

    Do all of that plus a 4' air intake and an R & D grate.

    After doing that saveup a little more coin and get retainers and 8650 and you will be around 75 mph.

    These are great skis, I miss my 04. Had this full set up on it and it was reliable all day. Dont sell it.

    Kawasaki dealer on the gold coast is always wrecking skis, would be fairly likely they would have something. I think they are called jet ski world?
