    Question Question of Ethics

    Here's an idea to think about and discuss.

    Talking about my '94 SL650, is it ethical to:

    1. Change the case to a ported PRO 785 crankcase
    2. Install ported 780 jugs bored 1mm oversize
    3. Install aftermarket heads on it
    4. Change all the other 'necessary things' needed to make it run
    5. Paint the crankcase blue to make it look like a 650

    ...and leave all the stickers on the hull and claim to have a 'Magic SL650'?

    Or should I strip the hull, and have a custom graphic kit made? I have a friend who manages a graphics shop that does some wild vehicle graphics including full vehicle wraps!

    I don't see any problem with painting the modified engine any way you like. And the hull stickers can say anything too.

    As long as when you sell it, you are straight with the buyer about what it is, the rest is up to you.

    There are lots of 'sleeper' PWC on the water. Look stock on the outside, yet goes faster that stock

    But, do you tell your buddies that it is a 650?

    Yeah, I think they would kinda think that there is something up with that! I just think that it would be funny to see their faces!

    In reality with the oversize pistons, this engine is close to 800cc instead of just under 650 as it is stock. The ported case and cylinders should make for some great power!!! And my bored jet pump will make it launch! I get excited just thinking about it all!!!
