    cdi and stator upgrade

    Hey all,

    How much would an ignition upgrade for a 1996 sl900 cost? Where can I find the stuff?

    Thanks,

    Cal

    my fleet

    So far I am on the doorstep of rebuilding the sl900, as for the slx, it is winterized and at the cottage, but I did keep the jet pump here. I found a local mechanic and he thinks it might be worth replacing the impeller shaft. I tend to agree, this pump might continue to get rebuilt on already faulty parts such as the shafts. I also have an entire winter to try removing that damn piece of screw from the housing haha.

    The 900 is waiting patiently because I have a hard decision to make, I can get a good crank for 450 which would mean:

    new mfd
    rebuilt carbs
    three new cylinders
    3 new pistons
    new hydromat
    and all the tools!

    W-O-W ive been spending haha, so I am going to probably bite the bullet and get the crank. I would like to know though..what do you all do about gaskets etc? I heard you can buy sheets of it and trace the old ones and cut new ones out? I feel confident with everything except the engine timing at this stage.

    Any words of wisdom for engine re-assembly? tricky things that you have experienced?

    Thanks

    Hey Cal. Just had to do the timing on my SL900 and it was a cinch. I followed the static timing procedure as per the manual and it worked great. I'd be glad to help you with it, but I don't think you'll need it...super simple.

    If you don't have a dial indicator for doing it, let me know and I'll ship you mine...had to buy one and hate to only use it only 1 time.

    ya know cal i think the slx was due to failure becuase of that broken/missing pump bolt , if no body had one installed its bound to fail with pushing 120 hp ,

    and also haveing a seadoo guy put it togethor , but i think the 2 skis will be super nice ,

    buy that crank and virageracers clys and pistions if you have 2

    Don't use sheets of gasket material. The base gasket thickness is critical to how the engine performs...too thin and you could have deto issues, due to increased compression, and too thick, the port timing will be higher and compression lower. After some bad experiences, I only use genuine Polaris base gaskets. I usually go the cheaper route on the o rings and use aftermarket. As for the driveshaft...put it in a V block and check the runout. If the runout is in check, move on to the next thing.
