    2015 FX SVHO Turbo Build

    Started working on Mike Klippensteins 2015 Turbo FX SVHO Mark Hahn race ski. Here are a few pic of the hull with the motor and pump out. You can see the new dual throttle brake/reverse system. You can also see on the FX Yamaha uses the 160mm wear ring but not a 160mm pump shoe. We are going to bore the shoe to 160. Just getting going with this build but it should go pretty quick. I will post pics as I progress.

    Great tip for the pump shoe. Did you change his grips last year as well? I hate these stock grips. trying to find a solution.

    Went with Carrillo Rods on this build. If anyone was wondering about the torque/bolt stretch. They are torqued at 20,30,35,40 and then 45 pounds, that gives a stretch between .0045"-.005". We do finish them off at 48 pounds to get right at .005". If you don't have a mic you can torque them to this torque and get the correct stretch on the bolts. Make sure you use plenty of assembly lube when installing your rods. we also used the yellow bearing.

    We did change them last year, it was a little work because we had to make some aluminum spacers for the bars because of the quick shift trim. This year will be easy becquse the ski has electric trim so the grips are the same both sides.

    What color hydro turf is going on there??
    Genuine Jettrim mats and seat cover for this one.

    Heard the jet trim cruiser seat cover has a bad fitment due to slight changes in the newer cruiser seat.

    Here is a few pictures of the R&D valve springs and ti retainers. You can see one side installed in the head to help see the diffeance between the new retainers and the stock ones.

    Here is the rear cover removed so the turbo oil drain line fitting can be installed. All the electrical components have been removed to prevent damage during welding.
