    Project "Things I shoulda done the first time" 94 SLT750

    Reworking the ski I picked up in August to cover things I should have done the first time around:

    Split cases, replace oil seals
    Replace Flywheel
    Replace stator
    Replace damaged reeds
    Replace fuel line restrictor with OEM version
    Clean up ebox interior
    New gaskets throughout
    Rebuild Carbs
    Rebuild jet pump

    First question - I have both rubber bonded and standard steel couplers on hand. Is there a preference or any opinions on which to use???



    Thanks!

    What drive shaft are you using? The driveshafts that go in the solid coupler have the splines in kind of a crown shape, where the ones that go into the rubber coupler are straight. Use which ever coupler goes best with your drive shaft.

    The skis have been mismatched, pieced together, changed, etc so many times...... Not even sure what was stock on 94 750 SLT motors, but I have both couplers....

    Those work with either coupler. The shafts with the straight splines are sometimes difficult to get into the solid couplers

    Solid couplers are lighter, faster revving.

    Rubber are upgrades that will reduce vibration. However, the rubber ones do fail.

    Decided to go with the solid coupler. FYI - The decision also brings SS splines (solid) vs. brass splines (bonded) into play.....

    Just noticed how much darker the exhaust on the CEN cylinder is. This is also the one showing the least wash (very little if any). Any ideas on what may have caused this?
