My first little fzr build
well guys here we go...new year coming and new plans. Gonna start this build thread a little differently than most...
First off anybody who knows me knows that i have only done seadoo motors and skiis with the exception of my pride and joy gpr conversion ski that was fast as all hell...
2013 was a not so banner year for me. I lost my dad not very long ago to cancer that took him from a salt of the earth person and in 8 weeks from being diagnosed was gone. My mom has battled parkinsons and dymensia for about 10 years now and losing her husband made everything spiral out of control. The losss of my father physically and my mother mentally in that short of a timeframe has been anything but easy. Costs of taking care of my mother forced me to sell my 2012 rxpx and my conversion. Both went to forum members and i thank u guys for buying them and look foward to your success and fun with both these skiis.
Streamlining has made me decide to build and keep only one ski which will be a new journey for me. A 2014 fzr will be arriving here monday or tuesday. Ski was purchased from forum member tiny through the dealership he works at. This will be my first attempt at a yamaha.
It has always been a dream of mine to build and compete at the hydrodrags but work and time always kept me away. Not any more. Instead of the full blown skiis i am used to building this will be a ski for the stock class but tweaked and gone over to the fullest extent. I am a deteail person so every area will be addressed as much as rules permit.
We all have our own ideas on what makes a ski go fast. I have seen motors and skiis that spare no expense be just as fast and reliable as people who do it on a lower budget. Its all in the setup. Neither person is right or wrong. I will take what i have learned about my past skiis and apply that to this build. Yes some of you might not agree but lets see what happens. Gonna focus more on my kids and paying the house off but in the mean time build a fast and reliable ski that hopefully tops the field. If it doesnt at the drags well then hell at least i had fun doing it!!!
my wife informed me the house is paid off and we dont have any kids...
Screw it full blown turbo 2014 fzr...
All parts from this ski will be provided by either jerry or nils. I will keep this build open with the exception of a few minor things since i plan to race it. Fast as all hell and reliable is my goal.
Lets do this together guys...
This one is dedicated to my pops. He would have enjoyed watching this happen. Love u dad

My friend, I know you mentioned to me about your mom and dad and again I pay my respects and wish you the best. I just can not imagine what it will be like when either my mom are dad go.
NOW take the time you need to clear your mind in that nice little shop of yours and this new bad ass 14 SVHO. Go through it like you do and have fun bro. God Bless!

So I got ahold of the shipping terminal. Ski is getting there tonight but because of holidays for some reason I won't get it till friday. They are only an hour away so I am gonna get it myself in the morning...
What's it gonna take to do this? Everything u see on the table. All mocked up, painted, ceramic coated blah blah blah...
