    Worth Buying a JS440?

    Hi Everybody!
    I'm thinking of buying a Kawasaki 440 Jetski with new pistons,cylinders and a brand new cylinder head, It's in a very good condition and it looks great. Is the 440 strong enough to do advanced tricks such as Barrel rolls, Nose stabs etc? Or should spend the money on a 550 instead?

    440's are great "learner" skis. as far as advanced tricks i dont know what your experience is. they are really underpowered, you have to rev them to the moon with mods to get something out of them.

    I don't quite have any skills yet, but I have read and som trick "guides" and studied videos carefully and I'm hoping to learn something. If I buy this JS440 I'm going mostly do Jumps,Subs, quick turns etc. and then try some advanced tricks.
    I will presumably "tune" (trim) the ski after a while. Does anybody know if you can expand the cylinder "ports" or are they "maxed"?

    Does anybody know where you can get det JETSPORT performance parts for the JS440, I've tried to search on Ebay, but all i could found was an exhaust pipe. I know they've made many types of performance parts for the 440

    do a search on ebay for 440 parts....why the jetsport pipe specifically ?

    mariner, westcoast, kerker, coffmans, PJS, etc etc made parts for those motors. none of these companies manufacture parts any longer for these skis.....your best bet is to go to pwctoday.com and search the classifieds or put up a want to buy thread. there are literally hundreds of thousands of parts for those skis.....

    with ebay, you just have to search every day and see what comes up.....

    found these
