    Will a 97xp waterbox fit and work in a 96xp hull. I notice they have diff part numbers so i thought i would ask.

    its the same box dimension wise since its from the same hull. the internals are better than a 96 box though. flow better and the baffles dont break apart. itll work perfectly fine.

    97 isn't a X4 hull. But to the OP, I don't know if it will fit or not. 97xp did have the 781 so it very well may be the same waterbox.

    A 97 XP box will NOT fit in a 96 XP.

    The 97 XP box is actually a 951 box. Seadoo put the 800 motor in the 97 XP when they were backed against the wall getting the 951 motor bugs worked out & the new hull to market. At the last minute slammed the 800 in just to get the ski to market.
