Craig,
Your wont need one 'cause you have the large locker that goes over the top of the tubes and hold them .

I had a 900ss years ago, the old one with 4o mm carbs abd the Conti exhausts - what a noise!

The best sounding motorcycle engine in my opinion was the original Laverda Jota, with the 180 degree crank. I can still remember the sound on one of those as it roared down to the Creg-ny-Baa at the Isle of Man TT Races on mad sunday in the early eighties. Perfect
My first Ducati was a 900 SL fantastic sound!

You didn't miss much, couple of presenters and the rib driver throwin up in what looked like choppy but not difficult conditions, and 5 seconds of of video of the rib with a flat tube. The rib was the second boat the "owners" broke trying to do a ferry job for the presenters. Didn't look very professional.

One outing, two boats and two broken engines.

Maybe they should spend less time tuning the engines.

Not very good publicity for a company that "appears" to make quality boats.
