    gp1200 rooster tail

    hey geting a closer look at my ski i have noticed that the little rooster tail jet that sprays a water stream off the back is not hooked up, i dont see were a hose can be attached or were a hose would come from, there is a barbed fitting on the pump housing with nothing connected to it maybe this?

    Looking at the pump nozzle, on the right hand side there is a molded nipple that a hose connects to.

    Any kind of rubber hose will work. I filled mine in with magnum steel on the inside and sanded it smooth to block it off.

    I would rather that water exit my nozzle instead. I also cut the bilge siphon tube out and filled in the hole & sanded it smooth. If you remove the bilge siphon tube you have to get a aftermarket bilge pump.

    That .01 speed gain is ALWAYS worth it

    Exactly! I think it was 0.2, and removing the speedo wheel and filling in the area of the ride plate where it went was another 0.2. Then filling in the ride plate bolt holes was another 0.4, filling in six intake grate bolt holes and the two at the front of the intake duct was another 0.4. That right there is 1.2mph.

    Or just ride and take the speed off the dream-o-meter. No gps can get up to that speed.
