Parts/Kit Overview

The R&D Spark Performer Kit was developed to improve overall handling, pump efficiency and engine performance with easy to install entry level performance parts. Each component part listed can be installed and used as a stand-alone product. The R&D Spark Performer Kit has been extensively tested in all water conditions proving its performance and reliability. The addition of the R&D Performer Kit will add a full 12 miles per hour to top speed performance and transform the spark into a great handling and fun watercraft with one of the best mile per gallon values on the water.

  • The R&D Spark R1 ECU Reprogramming Service will improve overall engine performance by boosting acceleration, improving mid range pulling power, and top end performance gains of up to 12 miles per hour. R&D has improved the overall ignition timing table with timing advance additions, as well as improved the fuel table in areas that could be improved. The O.E.M. “low ceiling” rev limiter has been raised to 8450 to allow the engine to rev without tagging the rev limiter which will allow the Spark to accelerate and stay hooked up in rough chop. The R&D R1 ECU Reprogramming is sure to be one of the best performance upgrades that can be added to Spark. The R1 ECU works very well with the O.E.M. impellor.

  • The R&D Spark Aquavein Intake Grate will noticeably increase overall handling performance, significantly reduce cavitation, increase acceleration, and add 1+ mph to top end performance in flat water conditions! A 2-3 mph speed improvement (over stock) will be gained in rough water conditions. The Spark Aquavein will deliver a noticeable increase in rear end traction, and top speed stability. Low and high speed cornering stability is also significantly increased. The R&D Aquavein is a must have performance part addition.

  • The R&D Spark Pump Seal Kit will seal up the pump inlet to noticeably reduce cavitation. Positive pump hook-up, and top speed performance are increased with a perfectly sealed pump system.

  • The R&D Spark Pro Series Sponson Kit offers 2 rider preferred adjustable blade positions that will accommodate settings for the recreational rider or closed course racer. The R&D precision cast aluminum backing plate and Race Inspired sponson blade will significantly improve low and high speed cornering capabilities, and add unmatched straight line stability. The R&D Pro Series Sponson Kit will reduce high speed chine walking.

NOTE: For Performer Kit applications in extreme rough water or ocean use where the O.E.M. impellor is desired to be used, R&D recommends the installation of an R&D Spark Adjustable Pump Cone Kit Pt. #163-95900.

NOTE: R&D strongly recommends installing the R&D Stainless Steel Wear Ring Kit and 86ing the stock plastic liner that will eventually fail! The R&D Spark test boat desperately needed a new liner after 10 hours. The added speed and power from the R1 ECU demands a stainless steel liner Pt. # 133-50900.
