Thanks to Sharps for a great summer on my ported 2000 SLX
The ski went great all summer after the overhaul and porting that Sharps did. I had the supercharged Seadoos scratching their heads. Pretty close to 70 mph I would say. Lots of fun and great weather we had up here in Maine. The modified trim nozzle got some attention too shooting a big rooster tail around the lake. I will be putting it away for the winter tomorrow. Thanks again to Sharps, Highly recommended for your Polaris watercraft needs.

Good stuff nothing like tucking away a good running ski for the winter.

Very nice. I would have to agree. Sharps does a great job! Sad to see it go into storage. I am holding out for the next nice day.

I don't know how fast it truely goes but, all stock I was getting 64 on GPS and know it pulls like crazy after some porting and shaving the heads. Because I did all that I had to raise the jetting and drill out the holes in my throttle plates to get more air. I have not touched the impellar yet, I may try that for next season. So playing around with the supercharged Seadoos has lead me to believe I must be pretty close to 70. I can hang with them pretty good if the water is not too rough. Speedo says 69.9 best so far. I believe its pretty accurate as The GPS said 64 as well as the speedo when it was all stock. Anyway Sharps was right on with the porting its alot more fun to ride with a little extra snap.

I too have the same ski. Like yours, mine throws the rooster tail, however, I am not ported yet, and get speeds in the low 60's after out running a Yamaha with a speedo that read 65. My MFD is toast, so I borrowed a Yamaha and rider and had him pace me. I pulled away from him at 65 on his read out, and it was a 2010 model. It gets looks when you get the nozzel pointed to the sky.
