    is there a govener on the 1200 xlt

    I was at the dealer and the tec was telling my buddy that his sea doo could be much faster if he took off the govener, so I was wondering if my 1999 1200 xlt had a govener on it ?

    There are not any ski's that have a "govener". Some newer models have a learners key that limits top speed to 35mph. The XLT does not have this.

    do you know what the top speed should be about on a stock 1200 xlt?

    Agreed... but if its got some hours on it, full of fuel, with a "decent" size guy you're doing just over 50...

    Thats where I want to be...60+! I want reliability AND performance. I have a more difficult hurdle to overcome though...I am 6'6" and 280lbs. I have a bunch of parts here to install including rebuilding the carbs, rejetting,FAs, etc...I am ready for the challenge though and am planning on tackling most of it this weekend!
