Performance results on SLX after some mods
I was so impressed with the ride today after a few mod changes, that I thought to share a quick note for the archives on a few performance changes on model SLX 1050.
1) Rebuilt carbs
2) Changed stock reeds to Boyesen Power Reeds
3) Swapped stock impeller with a Solas PA-SC-X (with slight pump mod...see attached images/descriptions)
4) Switched to a Solas intake grate
5) Installed a Wet Wolf Adjust-A-Thrust
Ran a bit rich at idle and now requires a carb adjustment.
Very quick, snappy throttle response.
Torque has increased drastically to the point of being extremely noticeable. ( I had to hold on )
Throttling in a turn is also much more noticeable, in particular to when the sponsons grab.
When coming out of a back end spin, or wave jumping, there is just no comparison to the old stock setup.
No regrets on the parts investment, and a special thank to some community members here for helping out with tips and assembly instructions along the way.
