    Straight Pipe mod!

    Did my own straight pipe on the Kawi yesterday. At first I thought it was to loud but with the ski in the water its not bad at all. Its sounds soooo sick! Gets everyone asking questions about the ski. Not sure about Power gains and top speed yet. Adjusting the steering tomorrow am and going to GPS it again. It feels faster.............. ASK Spin. lololol hahaha

    Well its not really a straight pipe. More like a U pipe. I did it at my shop. Took about 2hrs or so to make. Stupid design on this ski. 3in inlet to a 2in outlet. This is my temp setup for now. Im going to mod the stock box and put it in again then GPS the ski to see whats Better.

    I would sugest that if anyone else does this mod that you need to clear the ski out like it still has the water box. The U hold some water.

    we all rev our engines at the end of flushing this helps remove any excess water that is in the water boxes it has no effect on pump bearings mashing up.
