    New sponsons installed

    I just installed a set of new Yamaha sponsons (now called stabilizers) on my 2000 xl1200 ltd. Yamaha redesigned them and offered free replacements to owners until 2005. My new set are about 50% larger than the old ones and just bolted right onto the same studs, no mods or new hardware were necessary. It took maybe 10 minutes. The ski still has a slight "gansta" lean at lower speeds but not as bad as before. It gets on plane a little quicker and is definately more stable all around.
    I paid about $70 for the set delivered.

    I just did the same thing and it helped considerably but did not completely eliminate the unsettled feeling. I only paid $40 shipped from the online store here

    Please tell me where you found them for $40 - I know you said at the online store - where are they, all I see are ones that are several hundred dollars. I know that I must just not be looking in the right spot.

    The ones that are a hundred +dollars are after market ones that are better. The cheap ones he is talking about are the OEM ones. Late 01 and up had the revised version that bolt right on for the XLT's.
