    Sharps SLX 1200 engine rebuild

    Just got my engine back from Sharps Marine, my engine was just worn out. I had a new Polaris crank installed, new pistons bored .20 over, recreational porting job and the heads were also cut down. Can't wait to try it out. I did some repairs to some scratches on the hull while the engine was out and now I am almost back together, just waiting to get some jets for the carbs and an alignment tool and I will get it broke in and dialed in and let you know how it goes. I can't say enough about Jay and the guys at Sharps, really great people, very helpful and very reasonably priced. Highly recommend them for your Polaris watercraft needs. Very knowledgeable people. I will repost and let you know how she pulls.

    First run yesterday on new motor

    I put it in the water yesterday and broke it in a little,man does that thing pull. Running great besides being a little rich for the break in period. Big noticable difference in power. Midrange pulls very well and seems like maybe more top end too, I just don't want to hold it too long yet. Sharps did a great job can't wait to get it dialed in on the jetting. I will post again when its broke in good and try to get some pics up here too.

    Glad your experience with the Sharps was like sooooooooo many others, a great one. They're great people, very knowledgable and stand behind their work.

    Now, with that being said, you got the most bitch'nist avatar ever dude!!!

    Thanks I hope to get a better shot this summer of some pretty good air on this thing. I also customized my trim nozzle to angle up a little more so it shoots an amazing rooster tail, I will get a picture of that too.

    Jay has always given very freely of his time and information here at the boards.

ID:	205355Slx is still going good, still not quite dialed in on air and fuel mixture but I'll get it. Here are a few shots of my rooster tail from a modified trim nozzle.
