    Im digging the purple. So you are using the Fusion sled reeds? They work well. I have a set in my X 45 and may put a set in my Matrix too.

    Doing a leak test with pressure works better. If you notice a leak just use some soapy water to pinpoint it.

    I don't install the stator and flywheel until it passes the leak test. That flywheel housing is the most leak prone area of a Polaris domestic motor.

    It was really easy to paint the Polaris logos on the head covers with a small modeling paint brush and some silver paint. Really makes the head covers pop.

    What kind of paint did you use for all of your engine parts?

    Next time you paint the head covers, just use a block sander to remove the paint from the top of the "Polaris" lettering, then clear coat everything. THAT will really pop.

    Looks good. I like the blue/silver/black thing you did.

    And the OPs motor looks nice in purple too.
