    Arrow 15F Riva Supercharger Kit

    Is anyone running this kit, or similar on their 15F (for recreation on pump gas).

    The reason I ask, I've been riding an STX-R for 4 years (2005 model) and I'm really struggling to find another ski with a similar feel (light and responsive). I thought, what the hell, I'll just buy a 15F and add the Riva Supercharger Kit, and viola, I now have an STX-15R (unless Kawi come out with an real updated STX-R )

    Thoughts?

    I have a supercharged 15F for sale in the classifieds. Supercharged Kawi's are the best race boats you can have just check the race results. I have raced three seasons on the same engine and pistons with no issues, other than a belt replacement about every six or seven races. We are pushing around 420HP out of our skis.

    Is the ski reliable, and performs well (in comparision to other boosted skis)? If you don't mind me asking, why did you go down this path, and would you do it again?

    Thanks, Mal.

    Ok, that's interesting. I've been thinking about an FZS but I've now read a few comments that it's slow and feels heavy. I'd love a ride on a supercharged 15F, but believe it or not, I think I'm the only person that rides a Kawi around here (Sydney, Australia).

    Has anyone riden an FZS, and how does it compare to the Supercharged 15F?

    Thanks, Mal.

    I think a SC 15f would be a total kick in the pants. My only concern would be reliability. I know there was pixie dust magic around the belt situation, but what about the rest of the ski?

    Can anyone comment on how many hours, and at what boost level, rpm's, etc these things last on the SC15F?

    I would assume we are talking about a stock FZS, so the reliability will be pretty good.
