What do you want to achieve?
Higher top speed, stronger acceleration, or better rough water handling? Just to name three.
In general, you can get more of one by giving up some of the others.
How much money do you have to put towards the project?
How long have you owned this SL900?

Had a great time on the river today... but am left with a new question to be answered.. One of the Jet ski turns to the right great but not so great to left... like almost not at all till I lean to the left... and that only helps a little.. any answers?

Looked to me like you had good speed. I would say go for some more rip.
Better get it to turn first though!

Congratulations on the SL900 selection. I personally think this is a fine ski. Do you have the 96 or 97? The single best performance upgrade I think for this model is the jet pump, the 6 vane stainless stator will give you much better hook up (and top end IMO). Other bolt on mods include impeller (depending on what you are after top or bottom end), ride plate and sponsons for better handling as well. I don't think more intrusive options are worthwhile for this model given the cost.
