    welcome

    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

    cheers

    ok

    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 !

    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
