    Ideas for a Head on a Modded 96XP 800???

    Just getting ready to do a little shopping. I want to know what peoples opinions are for after market heads. The one that I have was on the motor when i got it. Its R&D. Worx informed me when he worked on it that the motor it came off of had been detonated and knicked up the dome pretty good, so i'm shopping.

    My current setup is as follows.
    Factory Spec II w/ MSD water injection module
    Microtouch revlimiter
    46mm Mikuni carbs Buckshot modded.w/ flame arrestors
    R&D head

    Wish List:
    Solaris Prop: Pitch???
    85mm Nozzle: Brand???
    Sponsons: Brand???
    Suggestions?? Ideas??
    Thanks everyone, all help is apprecieated!

    I think Miller is the best available right now. That way you have the ability to buy new and be able to select the octane you want to run.

    I would put an ad up over at pwctoday.com. or how bad is your r&d head? Most likely unless its trashed I would clean it up and just run it. Most likely you wont even notice a differents. Also make sure you squish is correct.

    Well try a post on PWCTODAY.COM and if you have no luck the R&D head actually work pretty well and are avaliable. ALos A good mod is adding the 95 pump extension to your ski, it will make your ski handle much better and stop alot of the porpoising.

    Also a cheap mod would be installing an 98 gsxrfi big hub pump with an xo or 17/22 skat swirl. Ski will hook up alot better and better topend. OR if you have the money magnum pump.

    Your problem was improper cly/piston clearance for a modified motor & cheap pistons.
