    Kawsaki performance

    Hello, I have a 2000 stx 1100 di. Runs great but I would like to go a little faster if that is possible. So is there anyone that has modified these machines? I read somewhere about adding about 1-2 mph with a solas impeller but I don't know much about it. Any one here with experience in this? Maybe bigger pistons tell me what you guys think

    Honestly, don't waste your time or money. A different impeller might give you a noticeably better hole shot, but you really won't be able to tell a difference in top speed without a speedometer or GPS. However, you will spend a small fortune.

    You have a 20 year old 'Ski for which parts are getting a little scarce, and it was never intended to be a fast 'Ski to start with. If you want something similar, look at an STX-15F. Faster, much more reliable, parts are plentiful because it has been in production for the last 15 years. You can pick up an older one for about $3K. I bought a non-running 2005 model for about $1100. Put in a battery, a used display, a used fuel pump, and cleaned the fuel system and it runs great. It shows 60 on the speedo, and I've got less than $2K in it. It ain't pretty, but I actually bought it to use as an engine donor for an Ultra 150 project...

    All good points plus I'm not a fan of spending money. maybe I'll give this ski to my girlfriend and look for something bigger even if it's a project.
    Thanks for the info I'm sure I'll be posting on here again
