  • SUV conversion #3 for offcourse2

    I am doing another SUV conversion. This time for someone else.
    I will take pictures and video of the conversion for everyone to see how I do a SUV conversion.

    This is a 2000 Yamaha SUV 1200 Canada model and we will be using a 2003 Yamaha FX for the donor ski.
    This will make for a good SUV conversion once finished.

    Here is the SUV.


    This is a great looking SUV with low hours.

          I will start by dissembling the SUV and cleaning the hull to get it ready for the transplant.

            To remove the engine I first remove the battery and the battery box containing the first extinguisher and then the air filter box . Then I removed the upper exhaust manifold. I then disconnect the supply and return fuel lines and the throttle linkage. Then I removed the engine mount bolts. Then I removed the four bolts holding the electrical box to the bulkhead. Then I disconnect all of the wiring harness including the wires running to the multifunction display. Unhook the water hose from the bottom of the exhaust manifold and any other hoses is connected to the engine. I then lift the engine carefully out of the hull then I loosen the hose clamps on the hose in the rear compartment that is hooked to the intermediate bearing shaft. Then I remove the intermittent bearing housing making note of any shims and their locations Now is a good time to do a quick engine compartment cleaning with some degreaser. Try not to let any water or cleaners seep into the engine mount bolt holes.


            I did not make a video of removing the engine from the ski because this should be pretty simple for anyone doing a conversion on the SUV

                        I have removed the fuel tank and the exhaust parts from the rear compartment and gave both compartments another wash down to get them clean. I have also removed the ride plate and pump from the hull.
                        We are now well on our way to getting the hull ready for the FX four stroke transplant.

                          First chance to log on since dropping the skis off, sorry about all the Fluid Film in the SUV great anti-corrosion qualities but it can be a bit messy. I am so looking forward to fishing the updated ski. I can't tell you how impressed I was with your shop. By the way anyone following this and looking for some SUV or 04 fx parts I am planning on selling the left overs, we wont be converting the FX to 2-stroke

                            Here is how I do my layout for cutting out the inner hull to get access to the imbedded engine mount support plates that need to be moved.

                              The videos below will show me cutting out the inner hull and removing the inner hull so that I can get access to the engine mounting plates in the hull to relocate them.
