First Ski Ever, Less Than A Week Old, And KABOOM!!!!
So i own a hull now..... 2002 GP1200r
Purchased the ski last week, bogged and rode like crap
Rebuilt the Carbs,rejetted,Riva Flame arrestor kit installed per OSIDEBILLS Rec/Specs
took it on the water and holy crap rode amazing!
2 hrs later headed back to the dock and no power.
got home pulled off plugs center cylinder plug is smashed, 25psi compression. pulled head and piston has a hole, sleeve is done and the awesome POWER VALVE is my culprit.
SO! i want a fresh start (new motor)
looked into SBT and heard some bad stories, but you cant beat the warranty and prices.
does anyone else suggest another builder or someone i can purchase a complete motor from????

Your best option is to rebuild what you have. If you don't feel comfortable there are a bunch of people around your area you can go to for help or pay to have them rebuild it.

drive up to tampa and see jims performance. He can rebuild the whole thing for you with OEM and he is extremely reasonable on the pricing. Worth the drive!
He's on the forum use the search button. His number is in his avatar signature.

If you are going to mod your ski, rebuild it yourself or have Jim do it.
You will not regret it.

If it were me I'd get w/ Jim on the rebuild, and if you're looking for extra performance he can help w/ that too. From all the stuff I've seen on SBT issues I would run.
