Thread: Advice xlt 1200

    Advice xlt 1200

    I'm rebuilding a 2001 xlt for the second time.
    the three jug sizes are
    80.0014
    80.0014
    80.0018

    plated OEM cylinders. What Pistons/sizes would you recommend ?
    I want a forgiving build that isn't running on the edge of disaster !
    many thanks!

    Standard size WSM pistons should work just fine for that build.

    So, I agree with that recommendation, those are all standard jug sizes. But what lead to the rebuild? And, not doubting too much, but the plater I've worked with (Millennium) has always told me straight up what the bore size is and what pistons are needed.

    It was a 'mystery' sinking...

    i left it tide at my neighborhood ramp for two
    hours. When I came to pull it out, the whole motor was under!
    i worked to get the water out but messed up. I ran it too hard before all the water was dried out of crank..
    I'm about to reassemble, just got the last package of parts today..
    ive got pics of a cylinder I'd like to have an opinion on.. From the geniuses on here!!
    illpost asap!!
    thanks!!!

    That gasket appears to be wrong. The 01 xlt has a spacer, and requires 2 gaskets. The one on the left appears to be correct.
