    Getting ready to put the 260 in the water soon, need to do the upgrades.

    So I moved to florida and am getting my ski shipped down here. It's an 09 260x, and before I even put it in the water I want to do some upgrades. I know I should do the 2011 300x pump shaft mod, does anyone have a list of parts I need? Also, is there anything else I should do like the exhaust filter mod? My ski was impossible to start once after driving thru a long no wake zone and shutting it off and I don't want it to happen again. Thanks for the help!

    That's a big move from NYC, good for you man.

    There is a sticky on here somewhere that shows you all the parts needed, and how to do it. Good luck with the way nicer weather and the JetSki trips all year long.

    Just ordered all of the pump parts. I couldn't find the sticky. I'm undecided on the exhaust filter mod

    Having had a 2009 260 also, the very best "upgrade" would be to jump to the 310 like I did. The 2013 300's are a good choice too. But if that is not possible than I agree with you:
    - Exhaust Filter
    - Upgraded Pump to current Specs
    If you are really ambitious I would put a upgrade Cylinder head on it too. 2009's were prone to cracking. Not all cracked, but a fair number did. That's an expensive part so it may not make sense to do it . . .

    Lastly, 2009 were still the "GIO years". I would change the oil frequently to keep it clean. JB

    It doesn't make sense to dump it when it only had 25 hours on it. When it gets closer to 100 hrs or so it's 310lx time. Going to add the exhaust filter to the order.

    Good. You must upgrade to the current Pump Bearing set up before your next ride!!! If the Pump Bearings go bad in your 260 it is a catastrophic event!!!. NY to FL . . . now that's a good move! JB

    2011 is better than the 2013 filter? Also everyone is still having better luck with the sc pulley cover removed right?
