    XLT 1200 CAVITATION

    I installed a pump seal kit, solas 12/18, riva top loader grate, and riva plate on my brother in laws XLT 1200. The stock prop had a hole in it, the grate was broke and it cavitated badly, obviously in this form. He rode it after I did all of the pump modifications and he said it was a tremendous improvement, but, it still cavitates a little right out of the hole under full throttle. Is this pretty much the nature of the beast with this heavy ski? I told him I did not think he would ever get rid of the cavitation completely, but I thought I would check with you guys here on the forum. Thanks.

    My Xl 1200 has similar mods, and still cavitates down low as well... I am going to a Jetworks mod to wake up the bottom end!

    Well, I guess that is good to know, but it would be nice if it did not cavitate at all. I really took my time and did everything right and so I guess it is just part of owning an XLT1200.
