    2000 pro project

    Well I snagged up a running pro 12 for a smoking deal the other day. Had 140 psi in each hole. Took it out for five minutes. Threw a rod bearing and blew a hole the size of a softball in the bottom of the case. The ski is too damn clean to call it quits on. I have a set of cases, and I have 3 good pistons and jugs from another 1200 I have laying around. All I need is a crank. Where do you recomend I go for a crank? Do I send mine to get rebuilt? Do I buy a new one?

    I'm going to clean the ski as clean as I possibly can. Buff it, make the bilge spotless while the motor is out.

    I'm going to send my domes to John at watcon and get a psi bump for the new build. I'm okay spending a little money to make this ski move. I've always wanted a pro and I want a fast one now. Other than triples I'm open to some other ideas to make it faster too.

    Here's some pics of the girl. E

    And have fun and stay safe to all the guys at the gathering this week and weekend!!!

    No matter where you get the crank make sure its built with quality parts. The cranks I have all used Koyo bearings. The Polaris OEM bearings were Koyo. Hot Rods rods are good too. For what SBT charges for Chinese crank bearings you can buy a good quality Koyo bearing. They are around 20 bucks a piece and you need 8 of them.

    I know Lugs uses Midwest Crankshaft for cranks and John Zigler at Watcon uses a guy for cranks who is very good. Just make sure you use good quality parts. It will not be a cheap crank when you are done.

    What's a realistic number I should be spending on the crank?

    Fair enough. I don't plan on getting rid of this ski any time soon.

    Find a reputable builder and go from there. They will usually know which parts are good. I had a crank with WSM parts and one of the lower rod bearings let go around 50 hours.

    You could probably even source the parts yourself and just give it all to the crank guy if you want to be really specific about which parts you want used to build the crank.

    Put a small crack in the bottom of the case. It would have been easily repairable. I kept the case. It could be welded. I would not skimp on a crank for sure.

    That's my plan. I was supposed to be sending my domes to John today but I don't have a running ski to put them on so I'm gonna wait on them. I'll call and ask him his thoughts tomorrow.

    look at the fuel tank in the pro.see how its off set.i'd pull the 01 slx tank and drop it into the pro.you have to take the pro tank bed up,cut it and glass it back.get the foward weight centered if your not going to go triples.besides you'll gain 2 gallons more capacity
