New to Forums - Performance Upgrades for Waveblaster??
New to the forums and the PWC world.
Would like to know what, over the winter I can do to make my newly purchased 1995 WaveBlaster keep me entertained and in one piece?
I own a small Import Performance Shop in Maryland, near the beach. So I build really fast cars, some modded diesel trucks and tinker with street and dirt bikes. So I am new to this PWC thing, with the exception of the occassional jetski rental...
I would like to mod and or overhaul the engine, top-end kit,etc.. Maybe a new high comp head, apparently is has a Riva pipe and perhaps a few other things already? I bought it in Florida recently while picking up a car, and didn't have room to bring it back on it's trailer. Also it was dark so I didn't spend a whole lotta time crawling all over it, It just looked cool!! I'll be headin down soon enough to get it. Also, I'll note that the engine is out of it, therefore I'm one step ahead.
I'm interested in the whole Intake grate, bottom plate stuff? Purpose, etc...? Also saw where some companies offered Pipes that where dry and other's I'm assuming are wet? Ignition upgrades or any helpful insight would be appreciated. In the mean time I'll continue to search this site for previous threads on these ol' ski's...
Thanx in advance.

Welcome to the forum. The blaster is one of the most fun rides ever made IMO, and is a great wave jumper.
I would stay away from aftermarket heads that use o-rings. In my experience I had to change them all the time on my 93 ProVXR (701cc). If it was me, I would have the stock head milled and retain the stock head gasket. I hear the Riva mod B pipe is good on the Blaster. Maybe some blaster experts will chime in on which intake grate & ride plate will suit you best.

Milled stock head (Group K or Tim Judge).
Factory pipe I believe is the pipe of choice these days. I had the RIVA pipe which vibrated loose quite often but otherwise was good.
Mild port (Group K or Tim Judge)
Carb rejet to the builders specs.
RIVA ride plate to minimize porpoising
RIVA intake for better hook up.
Impeller is optional because the stocker impeller was quite good. You would gain about 1 mph with an aftermarket.
These mods with take an other wise stock blaster of approx 46 mph. to about 52-55mph. REALLY good accelleration and squirrly. The absolute best wave jumper in the sit down class you will ever come across. It will carve unbelievebly. It will take at least 2 seasons for you to really master what the blaster is capable of.
It is actually hard for some people to even sit on it without falling over becasue it is unstable. Once you learn how to ride it, it is a BLAST!!!
