    Xl or Gpr intake duct?

    I have a 99 Xl 1200 and it has the rounded style intake duct and I was wondering if anyone has swapped to a flat style gpr intake duct. Seems like it would flow into the rideplate better. I know i woud have to get a new intake grate but o well might be worth it.

    Rounded Bottom

    Flat Style

    People replace the XLL and XLT pump shoes with the FX pump shoe to cure this problem. Jim used to sell this as a complete handling package for the XLL/XLT skis and has since stopped using them. Having personally had a high powered XLT with an FX shoe I can tell you that the increase in speed is NOT worth in increased safety risk! The ski feels great but becomes unpredictable at top speed. My ski took a sudden sharp right at 72 mph which sent me skipping across the water.
