Hi everyone, I figured you all would be interested in the extensive number of mods I have done to my Spark 3up IBR: (not in order of importance)

1. CUSTOM quick trim system (works amazing)

2. CUSTOM extended rideplate with Tunnel (really nice/needed upgrade)

3. CUSTOM true cold/dry air intake system (completely sealed and ONLY cold air and it works flawlessly)

4. CUSTOM E.G.R. setup that ALL Sparks need in my opinion that ELIMINATES regurgitation of oily air getting into the intake (a no brainer)

5. CUSTOM rear silencer bypass (very similar to others I have seen however mine ties into the intake system believe it or not and is very effective)

6. CUSTOM "Taper Bar" grips with bar extenders

7. Stainless Steel Wear Ring (RIVA part) the plastic wear rings are junk lets face it, mine was worn irregularly BEFORE it even went into the water (I still have it if anyone wants it CHEAP! Never used only started up at dealer before delivery)

8. CUSTOM high flow/lightweight driveshaft that I made which increases flow/reduces cavitation and reduces spinning weight (works great WHY use the bogus heavy huge stock one?)

9. CUSTOM modified IBR stoppers and travel angle stops too. (gives CRAZY better brakes and allows my Quick Trim setup to have more range too)

10. CUSTOM V TECH 110 hp tune for my mods

11. Stainless Steel washers all around for the deck and nose/tail screws (really a must have as the stock plastic ones are junk, plus the metal ones make the entire ski more solid by creating a larger more solid hold down over the entire surface unlike the plastic wimpy feeble ones)

12. CUSTOM relocated sponsons (just elongated the holes to drop them down fully is all)

13. Of course I removed the Spark Arrestor too.....

I really like the Spark with this setup and really want more top speed but am unwilling to add 40 pounds for a Turbo setup.

Usually having an extended ride plate ( with tunnel ) not only helps with handling, but also allows the bottom of the ski to get out of the water, possibly lifts the front of the ski up a bit, letting the ski ride only on the rideplate at wide open throttle-
This will get you better fuel mileage ( hopefully by creating less drag by having less of the ski dragging in the water) and faster overall speed. These are all hopes of a ride plate improvement.
If any of you ever had a Polaris ski, the extended "Ocean Pro" rideplates helped a great deal. I purchased one and was amazed by the improvements in the ski's handling and speed.
There is a shop near Tampa Florida that does some amazing stuff with rideplate mods, no doubt he could lend a hand to help improve upon whatever has been designed so far, if he hasn't already. All the Guys who have built the crazy fast Yamahas and Ultras know who he is and have probably sent their rideplates off to him at some point in their quest for speed.

sounds pretty cool, how about some more info on your custom quick trim?

3D cad designed / adjustable manual 6 position w more up and down nozzle range than the stock IBR nozzle has / Stainless and Marine hardware throughout / also makes the brakes MORE effective as a side benefit.
Is this something you are going to market?
Really interested in trim on a spark!
