This js400 has upgraded egine(550) and parts from performance jet ski inc. Are they out of business? even the impeller is upgraded. I'm guessing the max speed of this rig to be about 35 to 40 mph! Not bad for the first rig.
My son really enjoys riding this along with his wife. It's great to do something w/ the family I enjoy on a beautiful day.He got the hang of it and rarely falls --now schooled as he did wake boarding before. Went out 6 times this year, a solid 20 to 25 hours time running it. Good oil designed for jet ski along w/ super gas seems to help.
I finally replace the hood seal which was dated and flattened, tweaked on the mini hood seal, wrapped around on the hood. Next year the rig will be totally watertight as should be. I'm going to keep the original color and graphics since most of theses are modified w/ a poorly done hack paint job. Yellow is one of the original sport colors( this shade as bright as the sun). They still make towable tubes, tow ropes, wake board handles in yellow and black.
Everyone knowing these skis and seeing this color and style knows it's the first mass produced ski originally. There's someone that reproduces vinyle graphics for it. I will reply w/ correct color code if someone wants to do a restore on their js400. A keeper for sure since done for perfomance.
