    well docking.

    I used to have a seadoo, and im seriously missing the lack of reverse.

    so i was just wondering if anyone has added it and to get an idea of the costs involved.

    I would think you could switch nozzles with an xlt, However you would need a cable and a lever or something to pull the nozzle down. Seems like it would be a lot of work but possible.

    Lets try to be helpful and keep the smartass comments to a minimum

    Having reverse on a GPR has always crossed my mind. My 2001 RX spoiled me alot with reverse.
    I would love to inquire one that task if I get bored enough....hhhmm..... , I may research the parts needed.

    That would be a nice feature for my wife and daughter(s)

    I can install a reverse plunger type lever in the oil fill hole
    Now I just need to find a reverse cable and bucket assembly. the only thing, I bet I can't run much rideplate angle with the bucket in place.....

    I'd need to look at an XLT B4 I think about it....

    i have never used craft with reverse, I think it would be rather nice to have but i have learned the sweep maneauver pretty well.... get a decent speed in the opposite direction of where you're docking, crank the steering column and use your speed vs thrust as you float backards(once you turn around )to slowly dock your craft... as for launching... a good shove of the dock usually gets you far enough off. not being smart @$$ here, good luck & show pics of attempts to put reverse on!
