Thread: Ah.......How fast?
09-01-2006, 08:22 PM #1
Just wondering how fast I can get my 1200 Virage TX going........It went 60 stock, I put $500 in mods and got 5mph I purchased, heads, nu-jet prop, wedge, and the water box. Now I get 65mph. What else can be done?The ski rides like a magnet hugging the water.

Good to see you Rich!!
People will argue, but the truth is that the domestic Polaris 1200 has way too much crankcase volume to make any "real" power. So the big dogs that go all out have a way of filling in this volume with epoxy, JB Weld, Devcon... call it what you will. It ups the crankcase compression ratio, and when done properly, provides a "pull" like no other when grabbing a fistful of throttle.
After filling in this space, cleanup work is inevidable, hence the term "stuffed AND ported."
Another way of doing this is to run a 1050 "full-circle" crank. The full-circle crank itself takes up extra space as opposed to the "porkchop" style crank.

I kinda figured that was it.

And since I am in need of a 1200 crank rebuilding anyway, would I be better off sending a 1050 crank to be modded and rebuit?
This is going to be on a single pipe mind you.

Crankcase stuffing is good no matter how many pipes you're running...

Doesn't that hull still own the record for LB2Cat?

You know if it was me I'd probably do the following (depending on how much you want to spend):
-Bigger carbs: (44mm PRO785 Mikuni can be had rather cheaply and have great bang for the buck but won't get you as far as big Novi's, Buckshots, Red Tops, etc...although they do retain some level of gas frugality...
-Get a CDI from Randy, It'll still run premium but take a little more advantage of those domes
-If you want to go into the motor take a look at the Sharps (they make some monster power out of domestic Polaris motors)
-There's always triple pipes...
-Play around with the size of the stinger going into the pipe (hint...start going bigger initially)
-Reeds are a nice add
