Yamaha W500 Power

Postby dcrummett » Thu Sep 01, 2011 10:19 am

Considering a Squirt with W500 (32 hp) Yamaha WaveJammer ('87-88) engine and pump. Anyone have experience with this powerplant and pump? Not sure what the thrust in pounds is for this engine and driveline...wondering if it's big enough to power the Squirt. I'm not wanting to set speed records, but don't want to build a dog either!

Any comments or perspectives would be appreciated.

I'll bet their isn't much diff. between the kawasaki as far as pumps go...The biger the pump, the more water pushed through, the more speed. I wouldn't mess with anything smaller than a 650 size pump.....
