    yes you need a reinforcement kit..

    you need one even if you ski is stock.

    Basically why is that you are stupid to not put one on, once it is on you don't have to worry about it.. and if you don't have one on and it cracks you are going to have MANY problems!


    I would also replace all the brackets with updated ones.. so that is done.

    the PPK ( pump shoe seal kit/pump plug kit ) is good to have because

    1: it is cheap
    2: You won't cavitate
    3: It is done, and your shoe will be sealed up.. but be sure to seal it good and up there!

    Absolutely!!! Reinforcing the tunnel is the single most important thing to do to your GPR!

    It WILL crack and your boat will sink.

    Being that you have an 07, all the brackets are of the upgraded type.

    This section of our forum has really good info about your ski. Tunnel reinforcement is a sticky.
