more slx 1200 questions
I still had the gray Tempo lines on my ski, what fuel line should I replace these with? Carbs are still all original with 165 hours on them,should I be thinking about rebuilding them? Is there any thing I can do to freshen up the oil pump or the starter. Its all right in my face probably a good time to do some of this stuff. Thanks for the help.

Just get low pressure fuel line from an auto parts store, you should be able to do your whole ski for about $20. The oil pump should last forever, but I think they may have a filter, I'm not sure. Personally, I wouldn't touch the carbs unless the ski is not running correctly, or if the piston wash looks lean - but I'm sure others will disagree with me on that.

i agree with Ryan, i wouldn't touch the carbs unless they are giving you issues or you are looking lean..
for fuel lines, i used fuellines.biz, they where fast and cheap and they come in different colors, other people on here recommend them, i replaced my temp lines and they where just, and i mean just starting too show signs of breaking down, the insides started too turn greenish orangish, and my skis a 97 with 160 hours or so

Scott's right about the MotionPro... some of the best fuel line out there. However, it's more than just a "little" pricey. Their premium line is $4.15 per FOOT!!!
Good stuff though...

1/4 size your going to need 20 ft,
and 1/8 primer line will work for the oil if your going to redo it
when i did mine, i was like there is no way i will use 20 ft, i came damn close..

I have a 2000 slx also. I will be changing all the lines including the tank pickups. Not a bad time to replace diaphrams if you got the money. Or a total rebuild kit would be better. it comes with new seat and needles and all the gaskets and diaphrams.. all the stuff that usually dies after 10 years..
Just because it running fine, means nothing, it could go at any time. If your gonna keep the ski, I would do the carbs.. no worries about the oil injection except for the lines// I would change them. they can slit vertically as well as horizontally. They get real brittle too. not good for a vibrating engine compartment. just my 2 cents...
