    97 xp carbs

    Hi I have been rebuilding 2 stroke seadoos for about 3 years and I can rebuild carbs pretty good thanks to sbt videos.
    I was looking for something that would teach me how to tune them and what tools to get.
    I have been tuneing by ear but i cant help thinking that my 97 xp should go faster then 52 mph on g.p.s

    Nope....that's about it for a stock '97 XP. They are underpowered and the impeller sucks.

    I have a '97 XP as well with just Prok flame arrestors and hit 55mph on the GPS this past weekend. So I would say 52 for a stock ski would sound about right.

    :yup: the last time I gps'd mine, I got 53.7 mph, so 52 isn't far off. I've heard that the max for the 97xp is about 54-55 mph.
