    Question 97 XP flame arrestor

    So I am looking for upgrades for my 97 seadoo XP I was told a aftermarket flame arrestor would be fairly cheap and get a little gain. I also heard I may need to rejet the carbs. So I'm looking for thoughts, suggestions, products, etc.... Any help is much appreciated!

    Yes everything you said is true. Honestly..... the best mod you can do. And I mean this with no offense. Sell the ski... Add 500$ that you would have spent on mods on it... and buy a 98 or newer and get the bigger motor. You will get a lot more power, with the same hull. And it will be very reliable depending on the overall condition of everything.

    None taken. Honesty is always good! And I thought about that ALOT. But sales tax, searching Craigslist, test rides, excuse, excuse , excuse..... What about a motor swap? Are the foot prints the same?
