Default Bought a waveblaster

Well the deal I worked out with the one I posted about before kinda fell apart. Guy was jerking me around alot after we agreed about everything. Owell his loss. Searching CL and a few fourms I came across my new one.

Picked it up this morning and took it for a quick ride, well.... maybe it too me for the ride. I gotta finish a paper but I post some more pics and some of the stuff its got later on. Just thought I'd update you guys incase you were wondering.

Thanks. I'm pretty happy.

After not really getting out on the sled this year I decided another summer toy was a good idea. Not sure if this winter will be much better for riding.

It's a 95' has a Protec pipe, Factory Pipe water box (not in the pic), Protec rideplate. Protect intake grate, oil block off with oil guage block off, Blowsion bar pad and billet throttle, K&N filter, MSD plug caps, and new motor mounts.
Has a new starter and pump shoe.

1 or 2 crack but they are only in the gel coat. No sun fade like most of the ones out there.

Also came with 2 covers and trailer that has new wheels, bearings, tires, and lights. Could use some paint.

It's definitely an experience riding it. Although it was only in the 50's and I'm not sure about water temps but I took it out for a quick ride. Took a few tries before I was able to get on it. They'll tip right over. Not too sure how fast it is yet because I just wanted to get up on it.

Nice n thanks for getting one. You had me looking for one now but Ill just try out yours.

Yea you basically have to jump on them and go. Balance/steer is the key part.



This ones 2 years newer than the other one and it comes w/cover & trailer...boo ya

I would have gotten a stand up but I wasn't finding what I really wanted. It's hard to come across nice SJ especially if you want a 701 and there aren't alot of decent 650 or up Kawi's.

stagesrt4 we can figure something out this summer. Yeah I tried the jump on an go idea, that would work if I wouldn't have tipped over. Owell, that's why I either needed warmer weather or a wet suit. Yeah I was happy with how the deal worked out.

I've got 2 clutches to do this weekend. Hope to finish install of Seadoo motor...


But Im probably gonna be up there the following weekend.

Remember chain charges fee, launch fee, and must be registered.

Wow! It's getting rediculous to launch a boat or jetski.

There's still a launch fee too I'm guessing?

Wow the chain is a major rip off. No less than $30 to come up on the weekend. I'd rather just go out really early on Lake Michigan before they start collecting money like we do to fish.

Even the few lakes that make you pay in Michigan are only a few dollars.
