Just attach the seadoo body to a go kart frame and hook it up to the controls of the seadoo it would def look interesting going down the streets. Def can't use the seadoo motor though.

No but it would be worth it say to put on a kart for the same value of a predator you get a bigger better engine to make something with it so why not ask

Sorry Bird.....this was discussed awhile back....and I thought it was you....but apparently not......

Anyway, the question of cooling came up.....and that was the major stumbling block.....aren't those engines water cooled? ???

I had a seadoo and yes it is water cooled from the water it is in. If you look at the whole engine compartment you will see all the components in there not only cooling but for oil injection too.

Are they practically the same engine ?

That's a bit like saying "what's the difference between a go kart & a Manco?"

Seadoo is the name of a company who happen to make jet skis... among other types of watercraft

Jet ski is on particular type of personal watercraft, made by many different companies...
