    Post your favorite mods!

    I am curious which modifications you have performed on your Polaris (aftermarket or otherwise) that you have been the happiest with? Rideplate, sponsons, steering, pipes, something else? To this point, I have run stock-ish skis (minus my 900-1200SL), but thanks to Bob I am diving head-first into modifying my machines (The SL900/1200 and '98 785 Pro). Let me know (in order) the mods that hae given you the biggest "giggle-factor". Thanks!

    I hear that a set of hot seat pipes is the single best mod you can do to the pro, I have a mild port job on my pro but I would imagine that porting the cylinders and raising the compression in the domes would be the second best of course you would also need a set of vf reeds, ditching the stock sponsons and adding some beach house or hot seat would be a smart move. Other hull mods that I would not want to do without would be the umi finger throttle, new turf and seat cover, definately need the drop nozzle( I will never go back to the factory trim) I am still using the factory ride plate so I can't speak of the affectiveness of this mod but it does seem very popular with the racers.

    I think it's model specific to some degree. I like the domestic three seaters and I ride in fairly smooth water, so I would say for me it's:

    Pipes
    Porting
    Slight compression and timing bump
    Polaris W (Fusion) reeds
    Flame Arrestors (Just to tidy up the engine bay)
    Wedge
    Rideplate
    Prop tweak as needed
    Sponsons
    Handlebars
