    Hey Brand new meber with a question

    Hey everyone I am new to this forum and PWC's I have a 1996 polaris slt780 I just bought and love it !

    I am just curious if there is performance reeds available for these skis and if they are worth it or not aswell as other small things i could do to get alittle more out of it. I like how much power it has now but if there is a couple aftermarket things out there to get a little more power for it why not.

    Also what is recomended to be checked or serviced after every ride out i hope to get years of fun out of this thanks everyone

    Welcome

    Click below for the service manual, which covers some of the normal maintenance items.

    Also have a look here.

    Keep the through-hull drive shaft bearing well greased with good quality waterproof marine bearing grease.

    Click here for some other common Fuji model issues and info.

    There is a lot of good info on these forums. Plan to spend some time searching and reading.

    Welcome to the Hulk Justin.

    Performance reeds are a nice performance boost for sure.

    If your Flame Arrestor has the skirts on it, you can cut them off to get better breathing. Flame Arrestor is what most would think is an air filter. Cut off the sides to expose the mesh screening, while still having the top and bottom sealed.

    High compression heads works nice for bottom and midrange power.

    An aftermarket impeller works well. Something like a Skat Trak 13/18 for your ski would be good.

    An aftermarket ride plate will help with better handling, and sometimes faster planing.

    Aftermarket intake grates woek well if you ride in choppy water.

    A stainless steel 6 vane jet pump will gain you 1-2 MPH with no engine mods.

    And an extended jet pump is a nice upgrade if yours doesn't have one already.

    Their VForce Reed systems are simply the best. You are gonna pay for them but you get what ya pay for.

    Try EBay and such to possibly find used cages complete with Carbon Fiber Reeds, etc. Also there are a lot of good guys/gals on Greenhulk that have tons of good parts for sale. Put up a WTB in the classifieds as well, will not hurt.
