    My Daughters 97 Xp Build

    I Am Building This 97 Xp For My Daughter. She Is 13.yes 13. She Has Been Riding Jetskis Since She Was 8.my Inlaws Live On The Water So She Is Always Out With Her Poppy Or Me. She Now Has A 96 Sp With A Single Carb That Runs 38 Mph On A Gps. She Says Dad I Want Your Ski "i Have A 90 Mph Conversion" Hell No I Will Build You One So I Thought I Might Share It With You All.


    I Paid 300 For It With Title And The Owner Said It Didnt Run And Had No Compression In One Cyl. Who Told Him That Is Beyond Me Cause Both Have Dead Even 135. Any Way Drained The Water I Mean Gas, And She Fired Up.THE MAG COVER WAS FILLED UP WITH WATER SO THAT MADE ME PULL THE ENGINE AND INSPECT IT. Shibby And I Took It Out It Ran 6830 @50 Mph. Not Bad But It Needs A Few Things So Im Gonna Overhaul It. My Goal Is 55 For Her And Safe Reliable Carving Ski..


    Here Are Some Pics Enjoy

    That is awesome. I had a 97 and a 98 Limited. Those skis are fun and suprisingly comfortable.
