    Lightbulb Post your own home made mods

    This a post for anyone to post any good ideas to help improve the spark


    So here we go this is mine I found the access cover popping open after wave jumping so I have added an aluminum bracket behind the plastic catch with a 6mm bolt hole then replaced the rubber seal with a neoprene seal.

    works well no more popping out and next to no water inside now.

    Lightbulb Bin Strap

    Here is another one

    Bin Strap Velcro

    Just raps around the bottom then lock down cheap eazy

    I know the rubber latches look nice but don't think they will hold to much weight coming forward doing a bronco

    Still not available for sale apparently but the old ones bolt up and retrofit nicely.

    Speed ties.

    Behind the right side knee panel is a spot for an orange seadoo canister.. I looked around and it was going to cost about $60 delivered for one of there kits which included the canister to fit the spot.. I already have a good torch so $60 was a waste of $$$.. And I'll use it to store other bits too, tools, basic first aid kit etc.. I had most of the bits in the garage so spent a half hour out there and came up with this idea.. I used stretch cord to secure in along with a Velcro strip at one end to hold it straight..

    I had been keeping the torch under the seat but have been pulled up by water police for a safety check twice the last 3 times out and taking the seat off when out on the water is a pain I the arse.. I do have the storage bin but this way it's free for other things

    That was my main concern, making sure it stayed clear of the steering arm and also that on case of a heavy role if the knee pad came loose the canister would stay put.. The elastic holds the canister in there nice and tight.. Going to put a few loops of that cord in the bucket aswell to hold things put..

    Curious... anyone considered changing the colour on different parts on their spark? instead of having one standard colour... maybe having 2?

    Without using the wraps?
