Thread: Winter projects?
11-21-2005, 04:47 PM #1
Since the year is winding down, I'm guessing we all have "winter projects" on the table. Let's hear about them.
Me, I'm sorta at a standstill performance-wise. I've pushed my stock carbs as far as they'll go, further actually than I thought possible. So, over the winter, I plan on concentrating on "cosmetics". Plan on fixing a few boo-boos in the gel coat, and changing the overall look of the ski. Thinking about going with a different color on the fairing, and getting some new graphics. Kinda toying with the idea of going black with flames on the CF windscreen and fairing. Maybe black and red graphics on the sides to match the red in the flames. Who knows.

After i build my speeds up to catch you guys i'll start trying to make my ski look pretty.
Im thinking about getting some green back on the ski to go with the greenhulk theme

Well it's no Yamaha but...
2000 Polaris SLX
Old race team Triple Exhaust port cylinders (bored to 85mm to make 1192 vs 1159ish)
True hull & repair minor damage
Maybe a paint job
Maybe some other little tricks here and there...This is all designed to go with the old race team triple pipes i have.
End result should be 240ish hp and about 7700-7800 rpms on a fairly steep prop (be around a 15/24 in a 144mm pump)
Hoping for mid to upper 70's...She won't be the prettiest ski out there but she ought to turn a few heads...

RX, i just did mine and its a pain if you are by yourself, but should be easy if you have someone to hold the kit while you turn the bolts. Would you like me to send you some pics?

My winter projects will be getting more out of the hull, engine and pump kit to name a few. Hopefully I will be able to claim speeds like the Texas bunch...we'll see.
