yamaha xlt 1200 2004 mod
i was just wondering if they fixed the leaning out problem the 1200 yamahas
had at cruise. or should i still rejet the carbs the ski has 40 hrs on it and its a 2004 model xlt and stock

the 66v had no lean issue, only when the check valves in the carbs are distorted, every 100 - 150 hours for the carbs or 5 years best to rebuild.
great engine, great ski.
any questions on them just let me know

my last XLT was running 65mph with completely stock engine (carbon tech reeds) and stock ride plate. just jetworks valve, pump plug kit, worx maxiloader intake grate, freeflow exhaust, worx sponsons (set down !!) and jetted up .5
with a mod ride plate, higher comp it would have run way higher.
best place to start is to seal the pump, and get rid of the stock intake grate, you live in the best place in the world for this stuff.... just down the road from Jack Shelly at Worx !

would it be any advantage to change the prop its std and still in good nick do you have any idea what pitch they are as stock thank very much for your help

i have also removed the two outside bars from the std intake grate and sealed the pump and shoe will try it tomorow

NO NO NO !!!!!
It is very unsafe to ride a XLT ski with the bars cut off.
With the stock intake grate the pump will overstuff and "Buck" on you - you just made this problem worse.
PLEASE DO NOT RIDE THAT SKI WITH A CUT GRATE.
The fix is easy, go get yourself an aftermarket top loader grate - the wing these grates use fixes the problem
