i had 3 650 motors...


the conversion ski still has 550 pump cavity but i have many mods done to ski....should be an arm ripper

im hoping to do barrel rolls n face plants this summer..

ive been working on getting another sled but im very picky n wont settle. I almost bought a 02 XC600 this past weekend

That turned out great. I kept meaning to check the build thread on pwc but kept forgetting.

The X2 should be an interesting ride when done.

yea dropped the 550 on the pavement...just minor damage


the X2 i chopped 2 inches off the backside of it. Thats supposed to put the nozzle out further, making it more efficient. Its cool the X2s have a manual trim as well....I most just want it for my friends to mess around on
