    $3000 is a lot to put into a ski that may not even be worth $3000.

    I put an SBT motor in my old Polaris 750 this summer. The ski has never ran as good as it does right now. I can't say how...

    Oh man, I can't believe I missed that. I looked the throttle bodies over pretty good before dropping them into place. I didn't really see that wire and plug until I had the TB sitting on the...

    A complete SBT engine is about $1600 plus shipping. With gaskets, break in oil, etc. you will be out about $2000 to get it back on the water. Engine removal and installation is pretty simple.

    All reasonable points. It hasnt posed a problem in 20 years but I agree that it’s a good idea to cover that bolt with a rubber boot to prevent accidental contact. I have a nice red rubber boot in my...

    I will for sure be ringing as soon as I find a flywheel. Any chance you have one or have an idea where I might find one.

    Just an update on my no spark issue. I got the CDI/Ignitor back. It tested good so no repairs needed. I had already tested or bypassed every other component in the electrical system except the...

    OK. No flywheel at Bike Bandit. I knew that was too good to be true.

    I still need a flywheel.

    All great stuff guys. Thanks so much for bringing this up. Sounds like battery voltage and charging spikes may be something to be concerned with. Good info. I have an '02 Virage basket case in...

    Really? Why would that be? I'm not doubting you but just curious why the stator and CDI would fail if you installed a multi tap.

    These connectors come pre packed with dielectric grease and I added a little more. The cables are locked down with allen screws much like any other electrical box. That multi tap has been on there...

    Thanks for the offer.

    I did find a set of the $100 Boysen Reeds. I will put them in at the end of summer or the next time I need to pull the carbs.

    Pulling the carbs is pretty easy. I remove...

    Yes, there are reeds available on ebay. I was hoping for a $100 set but it looks like only the $120-$150 reeds are available at this point. My reeds arent that bad. They are sealing very good with...

    Bad reeds can cause a stumble as the motor is spooling up depending on how bad they are. There are both Lean Bogs and Rich bogs. Lean bogs only last a second or less and usually pop when you go...
