Hey my names Eric, i live in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. but ride just outside of Dunnville, Ontario on lake erie. i partially own, with the old man a 2008 Seadoo rxt 215 (from basically new) and just last week purchased a 1987 kawi JS300, will be doing tonnes of noseying around the forums but over the winter i plan to completely overhaul this machine with a bigger motor and all the funn accessories. also needs to be painted (gel coated) previous owner ruined the exterior with this awful puke green paint that he hoped would turn out to look like kawi green. it doesnt. any help will be much appreciated, if anyone in the area knows where i can get parts and stuff, also info on how to paint these id be very appreciative. I am a level 3 mechanic apprentice so hopefully shortly will write my papers and be licensed, but i am very mechanically inclined since i work on cars 6 days a week as a job and this will be my funn hobby for evenings and ride on weekends. ordered the k&n flame arrestor and adapter, excited for that to show up tomorrow
Thanks very much for any help! excited to dive into this project.
PS. the hood has a approx 2" hole as an intake, i was wondering what other ppl have used to screen this to allow air but restrict water??
