    This will be quite a challenge, I'm thinking for the 5mph speed you are going to gain it isn't worth it. Pump parts are interchangeable, but it may be an issue getting the domestic motor to fit where...

    Yeah, some people have no concept of what items are selling for. I doubt it even sold for $7000 new, I bought a 96 Polaris SLTX1050 new in 96 & paid $7000.

    Maybe I was thinking of the 3 seater Yamaha he also had at the time that had trim, I could have swore the TX had trim, it was over 15 years ago. The aftermarket domes don't yield enough power to...

    Set the mixture screws to the 1996 SLT setting. The 97 had them set all the same, but used different size jets in each carb, those did run a bit better cause they were easier to tune.

    What I did was take a piece of 12ga smooth wire & hammer the end flat, then bend a 90 degree on the end & trim the end so the "hook" is only about an 1/8 long, this allows you to get further into the...

    Definitely part it out, its 13 years old & needs an engine, you can buy one a couple years old for what it will cost you to get it going again.

    I prefer to have them tight as the watercraft sits on the trailer, more solid when trailering.

    Interesting build, usually people go the other way, ie larger engine, but I can see this should work well for it intended purpose. You have a very stable standup ski for the kids, its not over...

    You should also be able to use the round Polaris MFD used on the 94 & 95 models, they use the same connector, they seem to hold up better than the style your ski came with.

    I did this to an older watercraft 25 years ago, but I could clearly see where each magnet fit from the original adhesive. I used JB weld epoxy & it was still working when the owner traded the ski 2...

    There are quite a few members here who would like to know how that pump performs, the stock ones are junk. I guess it depends on how you do your 'intake' mod, I did mine & picked up 1.8mph & a lot of...

    only turning the high speed mixture screws about an 1/8 turn, if you use an aftermarket reed petal you will need to upjet a size. With todays fuels its not a bad idea to upjet one size anyway.
