    Waterholic's #81 FZR Build !!!!

    Ok so this is my other ski that my father primarily rides. I decided to start a build thread as we recently decided to do some mods to it.

    It's a 2009 blue FZR and the following mods are going in.

    - RIVA Power Filter
    - RIVA Free Flow Exhaust
    - RIVA E1 Supercharger wheel
    - RIVA Gen I Power cooler
    - RIVA Engine Cooling
    - RIVA Athena Power Connect ECU
    - RIVA Fuel Pressure Regulator
    - RIVA Engine Breather
    - RIVA Fuel Pressure Regulator
    - RIVA Intake Manifold Upgrade
    - RIVA Valve Train
    - RIVA Rideplate
    - TiAL 50mm BOV
    - R&D Intake Grate
    This ski is my pop's ski that I fix for him. We ride it recreationally year round and enter it in any events that come around. It previously had a stage 1 and was around 68-69 mph. Can't wait to take it out with the new setup
    [Pics coming tomorrow]

    So got through installing most of the RIVA power cooler and the cooling. The only thing that's holding me back from putting everything together is that I ran out of hose clamps. I changed EVERY hose clamp to all stainless steel worm clamps. Also tapped the manifold so I have a dedicated 6mm line going to my TiALBOV.

    looks like a good build, think you might get fed up with the drone of that exhaust though

    How did you find replacing the clamps down near the bottom of the engine? I'm amazed that they used such crappy clamps in steel from factory.

    The exhaust came out well, it only drones when doing real low speed. Mid and full throttle you can't really notice it's that loud unless your standing on shore lol

    You better do the pump tunnel re enforcment up grade or else you will be looking for another hull when it splits the tunnel! Tommy Jordan

    I have both a RIVA waterbox and rear exhaust but the drone hasn't been to bad as yet.

    The T that goes to the exhaust at the bottom was a real PITA to get out. Look at how many clamps I got from the factory motor.

    Thanks for the warning Tommy. I want to do the pump tunnel reinforcement, but not having any experience in doing that has really made me not want to do it.

    The tunnel reinforcement is really easy just takes some time to do it is all! I would def consider getting to and getting done especially since u are def going to picking up some speed with the mods u have done. It's better to do it now then to wish u did it later when there is a hole in the tunnel!

    Nice. I am not a fan of those clamps either.
    The couple of folks are right. If you plan to modify the ski, do the tunnel reinforcement to be safe. Check out my link here, it has helped several others to understand what is involved. It is time consuming, but not a tough task. Toughest part is cutting the liner so the reinforcement fits down onto the hull. Hope this helps.
