    Next Idea's welcome for 2 760's

    Hi,
    I know you like helping out faster ski's but us older and slower ski's need ideas also
    I just got my 97 760 handling like how I wanted it to handle ( Pro- Tech ride plate).
    My wifes 97 760 wave venture is lacking in snappy on the throttle on take off it is not a responsive as the Gp's .
    It has 125 psi . new pistons 15 hours ago on ride time. primer kit. It has over 200 hours it. Plugs look good.Was thinking maybe new reeds and reed stuffers? Since we use this one for towing tubes also.
    Prop is stock but not beat up.
    Any ideas on where to start on being more snappy. Kinda want to do both ski's at same time.
    What props would be recomnded for better over all?
    Would flame arrestors be worth the investment?
    Thanks,
    Jesse

    760`s

    Don`t waste your $ on your skis. You won`t get much more speed out of that engine. Buy something with more h.p.!!!!!!!!!!!

    I agree, get a ski with more engine in it.

    If we all thought that way.... you wouldnt have some one to pick on
    Hes got the ski's and wants a bit more for not a lot of $$$
    Here's a start
    1. F/A's would help air flow( re-jet may be called for)
    2. IMO.. XJ/XO impeller ( call Carl at Island for his pitch recomendation)
    3. Riva /R&D/Protec- long- plate/grate setup( get the plate trued - the word is, start set at 2 deg, call Jim, at Performance, can do the GP plate)
    4. get the new AAT for hole shot and a better upper end ( wet wolf had some left at a really good deal$)

    GET A GOOD TACH!!!

    I hear ya but you've just quoted around $500 worth of parts plus labor. I would just sell the 760 and buy a used GP1200 and be way ahead.

    I like your ideas but what are FAA"s???
    The prob is the one ski lacks being snappy like like my gp 760 ..... had to go to 85 mm pistons on one that lacks snappness... it has the top end but motoe responce is not there

    its an item called Adjust A Thrust. look it up here...P/M WET WOLF... Bruce can fill you in!!
    These parts can be found, plates/ grates and f/a's on ebay all the time at a good price... the impellers can be had fairly cheap as they ar'nt in demand that much ,ebay, then sent off to have checked and pitched.
    AAT was on special as this was a update of an older AAT (Bruce has reworked the older one for sale)

    hi compression heads add power all over ,and are very easy to install....I dont know much about your ski but if it will install on your application the jet works mod is very good for low end punch.

    JetWorks can work on this, it basically is the same sett up... but IMT, not what he's needing for an everyday use ski...
    BUT IF YOU WANT MORE ... GO FOR IT TOO!!!
