We are taking you behind the build of the new Splashster Prototype PWC. While this is not the first side-by-side PWC, this is the first side-by-side designed with sport performance in-mind. The all-new Splashster is under 10 feet in length and under 48 inches wide and is considered to be the RzR of the water.
The prototype is equipped with a standard marine steering helm custom fit with a jet boat cable. The 135 degres of throw keeps the steering responsive at all speeds. We have mounted the throttle, via finger throttle, to the steering wheel to achieve maximum sport appeal.
We installed a Yamaha 701 cc PWC engine into the Splashster prototype. A stock single-carb 61x unit achieved a maximum speed of 32.86 MPH prior to tuning.
The exhaust is routed through a single tube out the rear of the craft above the waterline. This engine is utilizing a single cooling setup, just as a stock Yamaha Waverunner.
A stock Yamaha 144 mm pump and driveline was used. It is important to mention that the Splashster utilizes Twangled’s custom +2 inch long + 2 in wide intake track found in the Backie Chan jet ski, requiring the Jet Dynamics intake grate.
