    2000 vs 2001 XL800

    curious to why my 2001 takes off and hits top speed rather quick, and the 2000 takes off and at a slower but steady acceleration reaches top speed alot slower than the 2001.

    Computer or components?

    both have the same top speed.

    thanks alot!

    ride plate may be longer making the ski plane quicker

    Check the wear ring for gapping between it and the impeller. This could cause cavitation leading to a longer plane-out time. Take a feeler gauge and place it in there. It says the gap that should be normal in the manual for the ski. I have a 00 and it took forever to plane out until I replaced the wear ring with one with a plastic liner. Night and day. Also check as said above the ride plate/intake grate. If either one are different or aftermarket this could give a better holeshot

    ill check that gap, i did fill in the cavities on the 2001 rideplate and such, but it is still much faster to top speed. specially after on plane.

    even when the 00 is on plane it is much slower to top speed. when i punch it, it just slowly gets to top. the 01 when i punch it its much more responsive.
    Say from 30mph or so......

    its just a general question tho, im happy with both. just curious if maybe the 00 has a dif computer setup.
