97 slt 700
My son has a 97 slt 700 and wants to know what he can do to make it faster.
It is stock right now. I have a 2004 mx150, which i love.

Most reasonable would be to sell it and buy one with a bigger motor and more hp.

Hi Jim,I've been messing around with a 96 SL700 ( smaller/lighter 2 seater)
I found I could use a bigger impeller, I'm using a Skat Trak 15/20 ( with higher compression heads and larger carbs and long style jet pump) It runs 53mph GPS.@ 6300 rpm.With a SLT,I think the highest you should go is 13/19. And of cource you need to watch the piston wash,especially with more load on engine,so you do not burn up a piston.This is just my opion,and I'm pretty sure it will need carb adjustments with a prop change.
My impression is the biggest problem with the 96 & 97 700 is it runs at 6350 RPM,compared to 6700 RPM for 98-2001 models.I think the difference is either the cylinders or exhaust,both of which I will be testing as soon as it warms up ,I'll post my results.

According to the Polaris Parts cross reference, the same 5131081 cylinder was used 1996-1997 (all twin cylinder models), and on the 1998 (SLXH and International SLTX only)
