    N00b XLT1200 owner, did i forget anything ?

    Ok, i posted over on pwc today, however this seems to be the place to go for the info. Lots of great info here and i love reading it all. I picked up a 100% stock 02 XLT1200 Yesterday. It has 125 hours and about 125 psi on all three cyls. I read up a bit and followed the advice many offered. I ordered the following today,

    D-plate w/ chip
    wave eater clips and couplers
    Oil block off to go pre mix
    fuel filter
    R&D top loader intake grate
    Pump plug kit

    I wanted to make sure these are the things i need to adress any known safety and maintemence issues ? Is there anything i may of over looked ? I want to make sure to take care of it the best that i can and not have it toss me off randomly as revenge for not taking care... ty

    And yes i have taken it out, yesterday before i purchased in a thunder storm... It was awesome but i lost my lucky hunting and fishing hat to the river depths...

    I would rebuild the carbs while your at it.... maybe an RD rideplate... if you have the money get a "jims plate" from the online store... 5 mph gain over stock.... bilge pump.... you should have have the upgraded sponsons.... jetworks mod (holeshot kit)...

    Check the clearance around the prop and do maintenance on the pump bearings.
