There is no "kit", but it can be done and supposedly it's not too hard. The hull is the same on all models and the position of the cut outs and bolt holes should be marked on your hull.

Here is a "how to" that I copied from another site for someone else:


I've received various PM's concerning fitting reverse to a VX110.

Firstly, you can do this to all VX110's. They are all the same no matter the year.

It's very simply. Yes, you will need a drill but all the points to be drilled are marked on the hull already. One point for the reverse cable, to come through the hull, is a 2-3 inch slot so if you don't have a dremel you can drill a series of holes and then file it out. A hand operated rivet gun & basic metric tool kit will be required also.

1. Order all the Deluxe model parts. (List below)
2. Remove the front storage bin partition & seat.
3. Place a small plastic bag over the air box intake.
4. Disconnect the throttle cable from the TPS unit.
5. Disconnect the steering cable & Stop/Start connectors from the wiring loom
6. Remove the steering system. One bolt & nut at the base of the steering. Once you've removed it the whole column will slide out.
7. Remove the large plastic shroud. There are 8 bolts to remove to do this. 2 are inside the body of the hull.
8. Now you will see on the fiberglass body of the hull, approx where the reverse lever should be, some raised circles. They need to be drilled out to the size of the circle.
9. Remove the blanking grommet that goes through the rear of the hull. (The easiest way is to disconnect the exhaust hose on top of the plastic exhaust sound suppression box and move the box away to access the nut using some multi-grips).
10. Feed the reverse cable through the hole. Make sure the reverse cable has a rubber washer on the outside of the hull. Do not over tighten the nut otherwise you will ruin the washer & water can enter the hull.
11. Re-attach the exhaust.
12. Feed the cable through the slot you've made. Fit all hardware.
13. Remove the plastic bag from the air intake.
14. Replace the shroud. Put some Three Bond on the bolts. Secure it & fit the reverse handle.
15. Put some grease around the steering column bushes (it will remove the play that the earlier models develop). Replace the steering column. Reconnect the steering cable first. Connect the throttle cable & Start/Stop wiring.
16. Replace the partition.
17. Assemble the reverse bucket & attach. (Do not forget the spring otherwise the bucket continues to drop down while you're riding it).

I think I've covered everything.
It will take you about 2 hours to install.

what is the app. cost of the parts for this reverse instalation/thanks
I'd say around $250+ if you buy new parts. The reverse cable is the most expensive part at around $120. I like to get OEM parts from Boats Net: Yamaha Parts You can go there and figure out the exact price as you fill your cart.

Does this info apply to a 2012 Model VX Sport? Thanks
The VX hull is the same for all model years. However, the upper deck was changed in 2010. This will probably make the reverse cable and mechanism a little different on this model. As long as you use parts for 2010 or later model skis you should be able to add reverse to a 2012.

Thanks

Does anyone have pix or video of doing the job? I searched and have found none. Sorry I'm a newb to the Wave Runner, But I feel certain I can do the job, Sounds like my dremel tool will help a lot. Thanks for the replies and I'll keep you guys updated when I do the job. I park it in a 3 slip boat house and really want reverse to get out easily.

gary did you have to pull the steering column. And in another post someone said they had difficulties removing the shroud or cowl and ended up pivoting it sideways?
