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?

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.

Just out of curiosity...why do the 3 cylinder engines have them and the two cylinders didnt?

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).
