    SL 1050 Performance

    Iíve got a 97 SL 1050 that is getting a complete rebuild this winter, all internals. It was completely stock before, but I am looking for any mods to up the performance a bit. Let me hear any and all of them. I already have a 6 vane stator that I bought a few weeks ago, but havenít put it in yet. Just looking for thoughts from anyone. Thanks

    Biggest bang for you buck would be to find some 1050 Hot Seat Domes.

    Hot seat domes are pretty rare aren't they? I was thinking maybe Boyesen Power reeds too, has anyone swapped reeds? I had good luck with the Power reeds on my 750. Anything else?

    I've seen a fair amount of people using carbon tech reeds in 1050's with good results, would that be a good way to go??

    Also, I've got some high compression heads on order from a guy that is having some old ones copied, will require premium fuel. Will this require any jetting changes that anyone knows about or should I just tune on my own once I get them?

    Whenever I do anything to a ski I check spark plugs (and you should check piston wash too), just to be safe.

    Performance reeds are nice. They add a touch to acceleration.

    Domes are good too. Yes, you will need to adjust jetting for it. Make sure to do a squish test once installed. Too much clearance and you don't get a good burn. Too little and you'll get preignition, or possible contact.
