Testing and parts production still being finished up but we’re happy with the results, Combining an ECU with only 3 other bolt-on parts has netted us 60MPH on premium pump fuel. We hope to have everything ready to ship in mid-December 2020 with roughly $1400 with the ECU send in service and $1775 if you want to tune the ECU yourself.
Well, it’s here, whispers and rumors have been around since the early 2000s but when Kawasaki finally decided to make a 4 stroke stand up JetSki, we’re sure Yamaha decided they had to do something, even after Yamaha’s own Scott Watkins said:
“The minute we put a 4-stroke in the SuperJet is the minute it stops being a jet ski.”
We know what your first question is.
Is it better than The Kawasaki SX-R 1500?
The answer so far is yes and no.
While it’s 8.8″ shorter and 142 lighter than the Kawasaki SX-R 1500, its also 7.5″ longer 3.2″ wider and 5.1″ taller and 70 pounds heavier than the beloved 701cc Yamaha Super Jet so it is not going to be your lightweight freestyle machine, which it wasn’t built for that.
It features the TR-1 Engine that has been used on the EX platform for the last couple of years, we hear that it is going to ship with a 100HP tune and will run around the mid 50′ s out of the box. We Already have lots of parts available for the engine platform that will help boost its acceleration and top-end speed performance, but we are not sure yet what the capabilities will be but to give you an idea, on a Yamaha EX running E85 fuel with our Jetworks Lvl 8.3 Kt we are getting about 60MPH on them, Which just happens to be the stock speed of a Kawasaki SX-R 1500
So far we know that it is better than the Kawasaki SX-R 1500 if you want a lighter small ski, but it’s not better if all you care about is being the fastest.
This is a brand new Kawasaki 1500cc SX-R with some bolt on goodies, still has its Kawasaki warranty until April of next year.
Can ship worldwide.

Yamaha has revealed the new 2018 Waverunner lines ups, with so many drastic changes made in the past few years such as the SVHO, The new GP/VXR Platform, and the EX Entry level skis, it makes sense why nothing much has changed other than the colors, but the line is still probably one of the best Especially because the 2018 Yamaha SuperJet is still a thing! If it ain’t broke don’t fix it, and the best selling, fan favorite stand up watercraft is definitely not broken.
While most people still prefer the Stand Up Style Watercraft for freeriding there is a small group of people who like the Yamaha WaveBlaster due to it’s “dirt bike like” feel. It features some traditional mods such as being a bit short along with some nose rocker, but by far the biggest benefit, which is also the Blasters weakest, is that it’ll be able to take the abuse of mid-air bails without having to worry about the hull.
Today was the official release, of the new 2017 Kawasaki SX-R.
While we were hoping that it would use a new engine such as Yamaha and Sea-Doo released for their entry level craft, Kawasaki decided to use their 1500cc 4 cylinder four-stroke that they’ve been using for over a decade. While it does put out over 150hp the engine itself weighs almost 200lbs. It’s claimed to do 60mph stock, but acceleration won’t be as good as a modded two stroke due to the added weight, which hasn’t officially listed yet (rumored to be over 500lbs), the overall dimensions are whopping 30″ wide and 8ft 8″ long (18″ longer than the 800 SX-R) in fact the underside of the craft resembles an STX rather than the outgoing 800 SX-R , so much so that it features it’s 148mm axial flow pump and runabout style sponsons. No price has been announced yet, but it’s believed to be under $11k
While we’re disappointed that they didn’t use a newly developed engine that would be smaller and allow room for forced induction, it’s understandable that they used what they had for the small market that is stand up PWC’s. This new ski won’t phase out the use of two-stroke in Racing or Freestyle, but it’s exciting to see an OEM making in an effort to bring people into the Stand Up Scene.
And as always, stay tuned future modifications we’ll be offering for this new four-stroke SX-R. Since this is the exact same engine that’s in the Kawasaki STX-15 I’m sure we’ll be able to hit 70MPH without much issue.
