    Top speed (GPS) of a 1997 SL 1050?

    Just saw one on Craigslist for what looks like a good price. I did a search and couldn't find any info. Anyone have any actual numbers? Thanks.

    You got that right!

    Okay. It looks like a good running '97 SL 1050 will do 60-62mph on gps. Thats a fast ski; definitely faster than my '97 Yamaha GP1200 on the big end!

    I just sold my '97 a few weeks ago. The only thing that really sucks about the '97 is the carbs didn't come with the accelerator pump. It was only that year/model that didn't have it for some reason.

    If you get it, keep your eyes open for a set of 40mm carbs from a later model 1050 or 1200. Others on here have said it really wakes it up out of the hole and will turn it in to a completely different ski.
