    conversion ?'s

    I have a 97XP with an AFU engine.
    what would be a good conversion with 2 rules in mind?
    the rules are:
    1: it has to be reliable when done (I.E., NOT a Seadoo!)
    2: NO 2 strokes

    I was thinking of an R/F12X honda engine/drivetrain/electronics.
    Basically what I want is to have nothing Seadoo left but the hull.
    Am I out of my mind?

    Scrappy,
    the problem is the size of that hull. Talk to Rapid Acceleration on here. He's done the 4tec conversion in that hull and even that was overly tight. That engine is one of the smaller 4strokes on the market. By your own "rules" that won't work since it's a SD engine.

    You'd be better off going out and just buying a Yamaha or Kawi or Honda and letting the past go. The work involved sounds like it might be more than you are willing to invest in.

    You've read my other thread!
    I don't mind spending time and money for some reliability!
    and it definitely would be unique if I can pull it off.
    the Honda engine isn't all that large from what I have seen of it and it seems like there is plenty of room in the XP

    Well,
    to put it another way.... Conversion skis are not about ASKING. It's about DOING.
