    As far as water boxes, I can't really say other than the ski runs 52-53 mph, same as a stock early model VX.

    I have had this ski running about six weeks now and have ridden quite a bit. XLT hull is still one of my favorites and this is a fun cruising ski. Lots of storage and very stable. I'll probably keep it for a while.

    I picked up a 1999 XL1200LTD, the first year of the 1200PV motor. The ski is mint, garage kept. It dropped the rear cylinder and I'm debating going MR1 or just fixing the motor.

    I know this is an old thread, but did you ever convert the XL1200 LTD? I have a 2000 and am contemplating this once the 1200PV blows up

    Yes, just completed a 1999 XL1200 LTD this past weekend! Same conversion as the XLT1200s.

    Looks good! Whats the speed you see out of that conversion? I wouldn't build it for speed, more so as a ski to loan out to friends and family. Something easy for beginners to ride. I have my RXP for speed

    Pretty much the same as a stock VX, about 52. However, it starts every time and I don't expect it to go 'boom' for another 1000 hours--longer life than a 66V for sure.

    I have not yet water tested, but will later this week.

    I swapped a 65u 1200 into a XL1200 LTD. It runs 58-59mph and its a lot of fun, feels light. You have to move the front two motor mounts if the XLL/XLT had a 1200 in it. if it had an 800, the mounts line up.
