    Do a 1200 Tripple, that would be cool. I'll let you know how the 1200 in the cane works, biggest problem is the fuel tank, and exhuast.

    I will ride this ski this summer.

    You know what might be cool? The Sharps have built a few 900 twin strokers. Maybe something like that with the Hurricane twin pipes Tim sold me.

    That would prolly twist up pretty good....

    Speaking of which.

    Crazy,

    Take a look at this post and tell me what you think about the exhuast.

    It fits very well, but it is just a straight pipe, any ideas on how it will run, or any ideas on how to improve it.

    TX sorry didn't mean to high jack the thread, I've been meaning to ask crazy what he thought about this for a week or so.

    Thanks Tim

    hurricane in the build

    so what do you guys do with your ride plates........... never seen an aftermarket one. Do you just extend the stock plate?

    I'll be honest, I never had the honor of riding my cane, i bought it on a whim and I have been working on it ever since. I have heard alot of things from adjustable trim of extended ride plate, but I am hoping the extra weight of the 1200 will help the porposing.


    I'll let you know what I find out.

    too much power

    We are building a cane here in good old blighty.......to race in open sports.

    Fitting the 1200 or 1050 motor is easy as the mounting points are already in the hull moulding.........but we found the power to hull legnth ratio is all wrong, and in fact it made it worse!!! (porpoising that is).

    Thankfully, our sport class is open but restricted to 800cc, so most opposition have opted for the WB800.

    We are the only team to try the cane, and having had success with octanes are going down that route for the power plant, retaining a shortened version of the stock 700 header pipe and stinger coupled to a Hot seat water box.

    I'll keep you posted on how we get on, but handling is going to be the real test......... we have come up with a new idea on sponsons too .


    From my days of building F1 power boats.......I would offer this one piece of advice, every hull has a designed and achieveable max speed, once you pass it, the boat wont work or perform.

    Keep it real, keep it polaris.........................

    Some guys have welded extensions onto the stock plate.

    Try doing a search for Hurricane mods on here.

    Also try contacting Bruce at Wetwolf, he used to race Hurricanes and knows alot about them. His webpage has him doing a wicked turn on his.
