Virage Tx Part Deaux
we'll i figured if i was gonna ride it new years day i better get started on changing it over.spent about 6 hours on it prepping and swapping stuff out.pipes are out,pumps out,carb are off,reeds are out,oil injection is out,bonded coupler is off.solid coupler is on,new heavy tension petals are in.didn't realize just by measuring the offset of the driveshaft in the wear ring how far off the alignment was off,add 3 shims left front,1 shim right front,and 1 each on the rears,will get an alignment tool and double check but it'll be way closer than it was.this is actually the third time around clearancing the pipes.the left front corner motor mount has been ground down again for more clearance.the build is replacing 40mm keihin carbs with the 42mm ones in a previous build up,swapping light tension for heavy tension petals on stock cages,swapping a bonded coupler for a solid one,adding an adjust a thrust to the pump,and complete removal of the oil injection system.i'm ditching the coupler shroud as i can't access the grease fitting with it in place with the pipes.and i'm also looking into moving the extingisher into the unoccupied area under the rear seat access,i figure a weight transfer of around 10 pounds by removing the oil tank and relocating the ext.

Ha ha, that polaris is such a pile of junk!
Only kidding, that Virage is VERY surprizing...
Doug I wish I coulda been there when you pulled out the tripples, I bet once you get it all back together you'll pull even higher numbers... do you know anything about pump stuffing on these skis? Not many have seen 68+ on a Virage I'm sure?
I bet it'd easily turn 70 on some 46 carbs...

porting baby,porting,this ski still has an untouched motor except domes.so if the pro is a little ball of hate whats the virage gonna be???

Sweet deal Doug.
The only thing I wish is that we could get you to become as much "as one" with your camera as you are your Polaris'!!!
