Kyle Burtka’s Custom 2015 Backie Chan

kyle-backie-chan-build-1 Here at Twangled HQ we receive a lot of emails, calls and texts asking about some of the various setups and builds. Today we are profiling this Murdered out Amateur legal Backie Chan built for team rider and younger brother of Gary, Kyle Burtka.


Kyle’s build started with a Black Gloss Gel Coat Fiberglass Backie Chan Hull that weighed in at 88 lbs. The hull includes dual 1/2 inch cooling lines, 1/2 inch tilt system line, and comes with the +2 inch intake track.


Early this spring Kyle came out to Chicago to assist in the assembly of his first Backie Chan jet ski. We installed a +2 Jet Dynamics Intake Grate with his OEM Yamaha pump shoe, and before we knew it, the build was underway.
