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.

Good to hear!!!
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.
Good to see he found a good home to continue his work with the Polaris group!!
