which ski should be faster???
hey guys just got a question to ask!!!!!!
ive got a 1998 kawasaki XI sport 750cc engine
and my mate has a 1994 yamaha wave raider 701cc
now i was told by the ski dealer that my ski should have more acceleration than the yamaha and both ski's would have a similar top speed!!!!
but wen my mate n i took our ski's out his had loads more acceleration and could go easily 20km's or so faster than me!!!!
just wonderin if wat i was told was correct or if there is something wrong with the ski???
if so any help is much appreciated

How is you hull condition ...how is the pump and prop compared to the other ski.
I think on those ski's though the yam might be a little faster. Your ski might hook up alittle better though.
Been a while since I have rode ethier ski.
Check the mentioned items and see ....does your motor feel strong as well...whats the compression??

This is an old one for me. Back in the day KAwi had the 750 in their stnad-up model and Yamaha had the 701 in their standup. The 701 would kill the 750 over and over again. So bad that few people would race the 701.
Heres the good part. You can easily upgrade that 750 to a 800. Walla fixed the problem.

Dont know over there but here in the US Ebay will land you some great deals or save your money and enjoy what you have for now and buy bigger later. Remember the funnest isn't always the fastest.
