    Aftermarket Sponsons

    Just wondering how many are using them? I know with the Gpr guys, stepping them is a good option. How about for an XLL?

    I'm running Riva sponsons on my '97 GP1200. They are WAY better then the stock ones for sure. They adjust way easier and quicker then the stock ones and they really help carve corners better.

    I have the stepped stock sponsons on my triple pipe gpr and stepped beachhouse sponsons on my big bore single pipe and like both. I don't prefer one over the other because handling and top speed are great on both skis.

    all depends on what you want from your craft.

    I only have experience on the GTXsc and GPR with aftermarket sponsons. I have to promote R&D G force sponsons here. IMHO better quality, sturdier, beefier backing plate.
    I have done both on the GPR, stepped OEM and R&D... different handling from each.
    I have installed newer 05+ oem sponsons on the GTX, hardwares and all, and also used R&D as well.

    sorry I can`t help you out on the XL...

    I don't think I have ever seen any stepped sponsons on an XLL... my XLL had Riva sponsons and they were nice. My 1390 XLT had stock sponsons on it. I would PM your question to Jims Performance, he had a fast ass XLL.
