    2000 tx 1200 help

    I just up graded from a 1993 sl 650. I ran it today for the first time and was happy with the performance. My question is how good are the speed o's I got 60-62 what kind of speed should I get out of this machine? It is all stock. What can I do to increase my top speed? Cheaper the better.

    Thanks!!

    Speedo's are typically very inaccurate...usually on the high side. However, yours happens to be very close to being right on...typical top end speed is around 60-61mph.

    As far as for more speed...there are a lot of things you can do but the best bang for the buck is getting higher compression heads. Do some searches on the forum and you will come across a lot of the things that you can do.

    P.S. Where in Wi. are you located?

    I live in Minneapolis but I have a sister who lives there. There are a few people on here from Milwaukee...you should send "rizzo7883" a message as he's from there and also has a Polaris. As for the watercraft, 175 hours is getting up there if all those hours are on the current engine...if rebuilt, then you're good for awhile. If everything else has had it's regular maintenance, then you'll be fine.
