    sltx 1050 accelerator pump, keep or eliminate?

    Last season the accelerator pump quit working and I was unable to find a new one, used were all over e-bay. I was told the pump can be eliminated with alternate jetting. I have since found a new pump on e-bay and made the purchase, (the guy had 3 if anyone is looking).
    I did a quick search and wasn't able to find exactly what I am looking for, if anyone knows of a relevant post, please direct me.

    The question is, should I install the new pump or proceed with the bypass?

    thanks

    The '97 SL1050 didn't have an accel. pump and it was a dog out of the hole compared to my SLTX1050 that does have one. I'd keep it.

    I can't say for sure, but there is a very good chance that the 2 cylinder motors have a better "carb signal", so they can accelerate well without needing the auxiliary shot of fuel...

    You can run richer low-mid jetting and remove the accel pump, but then you run the possibility of loading up in no wake zones.

    The later twins have accellerator pumps, and Zig has a pile of rebuild parts for them..
    Keep the accellerator pump and save yourself a ton of confusion trying to re-jet.. (and $$ for a pile of jets).
