    Question on 587 motor

    I have a running 587 white motor with electrics(for sale) but I just found a 94 Sea doo XP 650 hull for sale close to me. Could I bolt in the 587 motor and electrics and have another running ski?

    It's possible... but is it worth all the work

    I would sell your motor & look for a nice used 96 XP 800

    Well honestly I have 587 motor and parts laying around and instead of trying to sell it I was thinking if I picked up a cheap hull and made a running ski it would be easier to sell.

    What would I have to do to make it work? Will the driveshaft line up?

    You might want to post this in the 2 stroke area... you'd get more responce there!

    It's been years since i've messed with the 587 & 650 ski's

    I would be concerned with the motor mounts & drive shaft differences between the two motors

    motor mounts, bed pans, and drive shafts are the same.

    you cannot interchange any parts between motors. if your 580 motor is complete, (carb(s) intake exh etc), it should be an easy swap. i believe you will also need to use the complete 580 electrics.

    The 587,657,and 717 motors all share common motor mounts and alignment as long as you keep the 587 electrics with the 587 motor you should be good
