800 SX-R

Price: R0.00

Kawasaki started the personal watercraft craze in America when it introduced its first JET SKI® model in 1973. The modern descendent of that original 400cc model is the high-performance JET SKI 800 SX-R™, a watercraft that thrills riders with a 781cc two-stroke engine and the most power available in a production Kawasaki stand-up.

The JET SKI 800 SX-R's twin-cylinder, 781cc two-stroke engine provides 699 pounds of thrust and is fed by a pair of 40mm Mikuni carburetors. A waterproof, maintenance-free capacitor discharge ignition (CDI) system with digital advance, aggressive exhaust port timing and a large-diameter exhaust pipe helps to provide superior top-end power. To help reduce underhood temperatures and suppress noise, a water-jacket surrounds the exhaust pipe.

Rather than add the additional weight of an oil injection system, the 800 SX-R engine runs on a pre-mixed fuel/oil mixture.

The 800 SX-R also comes equipped with a freshwater flush fitting that is adaptable to a standard garden hose and helps operators rinse out the motor's cooling lines.

The hull of the 800 SX-R is designed for exceptional stability yet does not sacrifice turning prowess. This increased stability not only enhances rough-water handling for racers, it also makes it easier for beginners to master stand-up riding more quickly. The hull design also provides more footwell area to give the rider more room to maneuver, vary foot placement and shift body weight. The handlepole placement provides optimum control and comfort. Soft padding covers the tray area for improved rider comfort as well.

The hull of the 800 SX-R is made out of fiberglass reinforced plastic. This helps to make the hull as light as possible while retaining maximum strength. Extra fiberglass has also been placed in key areas to further improve hull durability and sponsons are placed just under the hull/top deck bond line to enhance turning. The hull's compact size also simplifies transport and storage.

The top deck of the 800 SX-R is also made of fiberglass reinforced plastic so it's tough and damage-resistant. Other features include integrated foam flotation that is built into the deck and handlepole to make the 800 SX-R virtually unsinkable.
