    water box rave valve question.

    i need a new waterbox rave valve.so i got one off e bay. it came off a 2000 GTX with a 787 motor in it .this is the same motor that is in my 1997 SPX.however i just looked in the microfiche (yeah i know i shoulda done that first) and the part numbers are different.i assumed that all 787 motors would use the same waterbox rave valve. anyway my question is: can i safely use the gtx rave on my spx without any adverse effects and or lack of performance? thanks for any knowledge and insight to this.
    cheers

    BRP updated the RAVE valve when they made the 951, and for good reason. The older style would blow it's insides apart. Especially when we piped our skis.

    The new style will work on all skis, regardless of engine size.

    Where can I learn about what RAVE valves are and what they do? Thanks, Ron

    I was told the limited (951) water rave wouldn't work on a 787.

    Never said anything about the waterbox...the inside of the RAVE.

    You guys check the p/n's for 800 and 951 RAVES. I could be wrong on that.
