Seadoo stuff gone. I could not keep it cool and gave up. Going back with Kawasaki 650. Gonna rebuild the gear box and found a loose bolt on the lower unit mount that caused a crack in the hull so I stripped everything out to fix.

Blue Dynafoil still waiting until I get the yellow one done.

okay cool.    do you have my DF thread to use ?  The one here was the most comprehensive one.  There are different E-Boxes to use, and it should be noted there.  Some of them have longer spark plug wires.  Don't remember which one i used though.   My donor was an X2

Tori, are you sure the 650 will fly the Dynafoil? There sure is a lot of left over room in there.

I'm surprised by that I haven't taught you that big things come in small packages

You can add a built-in ice chest.

Well I got the first kawi 650 in and had ignition problems - no fire. Pulled it back out and found a bad stator plate. Pulled the second engine from the other SX and it fired right up. finished everything else and heading to the lake tomorrow.

Looks good Mike.  I've got an extra stator I'll sell if you need.  You'll want to move to a bigger carb than that tiny 28mm
Hope she runs well!

Took it to the lake today and it did not run hot so that problem is fixed thanks to the Kawasaki 650.Did have a running problem from half throttle and up. Ran like it was lean but if you slowly pulled the choke it would bog down. It has a Keihin 34mm on it but I noticed the other 650 had a Keihin 40mm carb. I never had the 650 in the water before we put it in the Dynasaki but it ran great on land (never heard of that happening before Cheesy).  Any advice is welcome.

Hey Mike !   I'm comin' for ya.  Wink    https://youtu.be/_YyG6xE-K7w

Couple tips to consider.... put some flotation on your engine cover in case it ever comes off, If it comes on in the middle of the lake, you'll never see it again.  And install a strap to limit how far it opens so it's not putting it's weight on the hinges when opened.   See pic:

Finally had a great runout with the Dynafoil. James rode for about 45 min and 1/2 tank of fuel with no issues. It was kinda cool out (68deg) and cloudy but got some time in on Wetbikes too. Yellow Dynafoil is doing great so time to start on the blue one.
