have today recived the last of my new 1300r parts to make up a zero hour engine,
crankworks crank fully rebuilt inc with new bearings,hot rods,pinned,welded,trued,balanced..
zero hour, 07 cylinders and pistons,
new head worked to 150 p.s.i..
perfect crank cases
bundles of new gaskets...
have no plans for engine yet as only 60 ish hours on orignal one...
thinking of getting lowell to port it,can i have some feed back from ported non power valve ski owners about life span of ported lump and any fuel useage when ported..
the reason i am thinking of fuel is not due to price, but i ski with 4-6 stock ish 1200's and 1300's and cant refuel once out and dont want to be heading back loads before them due to the ported motor drinking like a fish...
thanks for any imput paul

Those new parts make you kind of moist, don't they? Come on, you can tell me! i won't tell anyone.

The guys I ride with every weekend have not seen an increase in fuel consumption due to porting. In fact I think Elliotts non ported ski is probably the worst on gas.

elliotts gas problem is due to drag,the mans 6 foot 3 inch...
the plan was to let the old engine stay in till it grows long in tooth but i cant see it happening once i decide what to do and get lowell to work magic,but we will have to wait and see..
salty; yes your right...

With a ported motor you make more power. With more power you can use a taller prop, so you dont have to spin as many rpms as the stock motor guys. Less throttle = less fuel consumption.
Lowell will do you right on the cylinder work.

set your first goal at breaking 80mph then go from there.
You just listed the mods I have planned for next winter.
