    Proud new owner of a 96 Hurricane

    Whats it like I have not rode it what can I expect?? I purchased a 96 I have seen several owners of 97's say that they were thankful to get a 97 and not a 96 due to some parts that needed updating. What were these updates? What should I look for? Can I tell if the updates have been done to this ski (was it a general recall)? Any info would be Great also will this Ski Kick my [email protected]@ and what upgreds are availible I also have a 99 SLH

    Thanks PAt

    The problem was the electrical stators went bad and there is a new updated kit available. If it ain't broke don't fix it. Till ya have to. Other than that I don't know of anything else breaking more than a 97 model. The 97 did have an extra drive shaft support bushing assembly but it's not a problem. Guess that's all I can think of.

    EDIT:

    PS: there are some Hurricane related threads in the project section.

    Do you have good medical/life insurance?
    It's a very fun ride, once you learn how to ride it. And it isn't easy.
    Watch the corners, this thing doesn't "spin out" like other craft. But quite the opposite, It'll grab hard and through you off the other side.

    Update the ignition, as that was the only weak link.
    Maybe a set of 40mm carbs off a 99 or newer twin.

    I personally enjoy the ride/feel of the Hurricane. It does take some getting used to BUT once you do, you'll be able to sit on it at a stop and not fall over.
    They do LOVE to porpoise on the straights but are killer on the bouys.
    Have any photo's!!
