    Kawasaki motor in a Polaris 750 Hull

    nothing to difficult for u guys, but has anyone ever put a Kawasaki 750 motor in a Polaris 750 hull??? is it hard to make the electronics etc work. I have an old 94 Polaris 750 hull sitting in the back yard and just want another cheap ski. it seems like the Kaw motors are cheap and plentiful so I thought this may work.

    Kawa swap in a Polaris Hull

    well the Polaris motor is in pieces and is missing the jugs, bad crank, and needs either complete rebuild or shortblock. I can buy these Kawasaki motors all day long running for cheap, but maybe it will not be so cheap when I consider all the work it will take....Yeah I would like to find a much bigger motor than the 750 if I can...

    Actually sounds reasonable. I bought a kawi 650 motor complete with all electronics for $200 for my stand up off a board member. The hardest part is going to be converting the kawi finger coupler to the polaris spline shaft,,, BUT you may get lucky and the coupler threads may be the same.

    One benefit is that with a 2 cylinder kawi, you will have tons of room, and lots of aftermarket pipe's and stuff to play with. Not to mention the reduced weight of 2 cyl's Vs. 3.
