96 Xp Hull Xtender
Just picked up a 96 xp, and it has a r & d hull extender on it. I was going to run it with the extender off this weeked to see whether I want it on there or not. Anyone know if the bolts holding it on are different from the stock bolts? If I take the plate off are those bolts going to be too long to put back in under the nozzle? If so I assume I will have to go get some new stock size bolts.
Just wanted to check before I waste time taking it off

if the bolts are not threaded all the way, they will probably be too long. you can run a die over the threads (M8x1.25) to extend the threads up the shoulder of the bolt since the overall length isn't critical. it just means that you have to thread it in further.

^ not hard to do at all with the right tools and mechanic know-how.

Otherwise, I just replaced one line at a time, so I didn't criss cross anything, and I used zip-ties with stainless inserts, so it went alot faster than putting worm clamps back on. All in all, it probably took me about 4 and a half hours.
This ski had plugged up carb filters when I got it.. It wouldn't rev past 75 percent or so.. So the fuel lines were already in bad shape.. Thank God for this site, or I would never have known to change the lines. Or got such a good deal on this sea-doo

Welcome a greens! Looks like you've been doing some great wrenching so far. Congrats on getting the best handling ski you'll ever own.
When you get a chance pull your carb bolts back out and grease the shafts This prevents the carbs from oxidizing and growing to the bolts.
The extended ride plate is a piece of crap...get the stocker.
Let us know how fast you want to go...we can get you there!
