Pics of the 2smoker I picked up this weekend :)
Here's my replacement toy for the Polaris I got rid of last weekend (finally).
Needs a couple things, some general clean up, a primer kit, and a gauge to stick in the open hole on the console.
I'll pick up a hydroturf seat shortly, and eventually get the bottom half of the hull painted black to get rid of the pink. Need some decals too, kinda plain.
Got a good price on it. Has a fresh top end with prox pistons, flame arrestors, and a solas intake grate.

That`s the best power to weight ratio Ski ever made. That thing can do some cool tricks.
Mine has the spec 2 pipe and an MSD box on it. Runs great. Enjoy.

I'm gonna pick up a Spec II pipe when I get a chance
Question for anyone that knows.
It has stock carb jetting, but a set of Vilder Racing F.A.'s on it.... can I compensate by opening up the mixture screws some? Will also have choke plates removed for a primer....
Probably need to lower the popoff some too right?

First thing, get those grey tempo lines off and clean the fuel system(small internal filters, selector switch, fuel tank...) Replace with NAPA 1/4" fuel line.
I'll send jetting specs after I get home(lower pop-off & bigger pilots).
The carbs may be difficult to remove cause the bolts in the '96 become one with the carb bodies.
ps. that's a '96 not a '95 800 (different hood)

Nah it's a 95 with a 96 hood on top of it.
The 95's had that pink portion painted on that the 96's didn't :/ Notice also the hole in the console where the multifunction display would have been in a 95. No speedo hookup either (I'm picking up a speedo equipped rideplate soon I think)
Carbs are rebuilt, but I'll be looking at the filters when I take 'em apart to rejet, the only grey tempo line left is lines interconnecting the carbs... I have some more runs of short clear line so I'll replace 'em. The rest has already been replaced with poly line.
Appreciate ya looking up the specs.
Bill Oneal suggested:
Rejet to 75 LSJ 1.25 turns out from closed.
OEM HSJ, out 1 turn.
95 gram spring
Let me know what ya think. I'd like to get a SpecII Factory pipe next year for it.

Huh. I had a 95 that didnt have the pink paint. Never seen that before. Mine had pink stickers but not paint.
My was the small motor. They made both that year. Cant remember if they called them half years or by some other distinguishing name.

The 95 800's had the pink paint, the 95 720's did not, and they were painted completely different. Javiert has a 95 XP 800.
Stick an SLP FlowRite in that hole.

HS 142.5(stock) 7/8 turn
LS 75 (new) 1 turn
N/S 1.5 with 80 gram spring (pop-off~38#)

Thanks steach, I might be able to pick those up quickly locally.
I noticed the SpecII called for a stock needle/seat, so that had me kinda confused too... especially since I was looking to do a SpecII eventually anyways.
What is the stock spring in these anywho, and stock pop off? I don't have a manual for this one yet... 38 sounds kinda high though, higher than stock? Thought you were supposed to go lower with an aftermarket f/a...

stock spring is 95 gram. stock pop-off in the 45psi range. steach is right with the jetting and carb settings. the 1.5 needle/seat flows plenty of fuel for the f/a, put the 80 or even the 65 gram spring in and you should have a good starting point.
