This is an aftermarket, lightweight hood and is 4+ lbs lighter than the stock 550 hood. Comes with built-in water separation to filter out water and provide maximum airflow to your engine. The 550 Force hood offers a stylish, modern look to your vintage 440 / 550 Kawasaki jet ski. The stylish and functional air intakes offer WAY better air flow, along with a water-separator system to reduce any water from getting into the engine compartment. This hood is made from fiberglass, bonded with pure-vinyl resins, and carbon-fiber reinforced around the gasket edge. This hood is over 2 lbs lighter than the stock jetski hood which, in turn, lowers center of gravity and improves stability. The center section has been specially designed to capture the hood strap, which helps keep the hood in place during any aggressive riding.
