Sea Doo 1996 GSX Horse Power Question
I am a bit confused. The title from Bambardier states the HP as 42. I read everywhere else that the HP is actually 110. What is correct? It has the 787 motor with dual carbs. If 110 is correct, why would the original title state only 42 HP.
Thanks for any help, John

Computers suffer from SISO Sheet in Sheet out. The 787 is 110 HP the GSXL is 947cc and 135HP

Thanks, Do you know why the title from Sea Doo would say 42 HP? Is there something different about the way that Canadians rate HP?

Maybe it's the horsepower at the pump. After all, pumps are less than 50% efficient... Ron

When the RXP is imported from US to Norway, the ski is rated to 120hp due to the low efficient pump...

This is a Canadian Title correct? What is the date of the Title? Chances are the last person that created the title asked the person what the horsepower was and they either didn't know or wanted it below 50 hp for insurance reasons. Before Service Canada took over printing boat titles, Canada customs did it and neither one of them knew how to do them properly. I have seen many titles with incorrect information because of this.
Don't worry about it. Ride the ski and have fun.

Thanks for the info. It is a Canadian title from 1996. I didn't know that Jet Drives were so inefficient. From 110 HP to 42 HT seems like a lot.

I just bought it. It needs a seat cover. Does any one have a seat or a cover or know where to get vinyl to recover it.
