    2004 XLT1200 project

    Ok here is my 2004 Xlt1200 project the parts are in and the build begins I know there are lots of xll and xlt riders out there who want to go fast and feel the need for speed like me. This project started because the #3 oil line fell off at 55 hours and being a speedaholic i couldnt just let it stay stock I had allready planned on putting the stage 2 kit on to get it up to 62+ so i just added a few go-fast parts to the build and I will see what I can get out of this big 3 seater. It will be a 1300 ported by TJ and here are some pictures of the parts I love getting new parts they look sooooo good. Click image for larger version.

    Cool, You have most of what you need. Have fun with your build. 62 mph is understating what your numbers will end up with. That set up will product 72mph on the gps plus

    Do you have wave eater clips?
    what pump are you running old style 04 and old or 05 up?
    if 04 back try to play with a re-pitched Nu-Jet
    I prefer 3-m 5200 over Life seal.
    How about d-plate opened up slightly since your rocking a ported 13
    Ignition? or timing keyway
    500 bucks vs. 50
    adjustible vs. perm 3 degree's advance

    Keep us posted & wish you luck!

    Thanks i would love to get 72 out of it i did get the wave eater clips even though the 2004 dont have problems like the older ones do, i still have the 04 pump next year i will do the pump and add an advent to the the ski most builders said not to use the keyway on carbs so i am not going to do it, i just tried to make sure i did everything to the motor so it is done for now the d plate will be opened up. thanks Ron

    My Ski will have everything you have done to your ski except the holeshot kit the only difference is the 1300 cylinders ported by TJ, and the R&D head shaved and ported to match the cylinders, I would have done the advent and 05 pump now but they can be added later. ( I even have the riva sponsons they came on the ski but the best mod that came on the ski is the boarding ladder it is so nice to get back on the ski once you go for a swim) Thanks Ron

    You got me going

    Got a similar XLT project (been sitting in the shipping boxes for a while), 1300 raised jugs (thanks JIM) with some LH clean-up and VERTEX slugs, (wave eaters) HOT RODS crank, ported cases by LH and LH mod head, running a O plate for now, ECU and ??? (gotta keep those valves open in the rough), NOVI 48s and VFIIIs, HO pump with matching 5 degree nozzle (keeping the reverse) PPK R&D grate and choice of plates. I've been dragging my feet but now I'm inspired!!!

    You will love the pull thats for sure! I know I love my TJ ported 1390... but BE CAREFUL when top speeding that large hull!! That is alot of surface coming off plane and can get very unpredictable, especially if you are running a FX shoe and Grate for more lift. Coming off plane too fast (not easing off throttle slow enough and sliding back up onto the seat too fast sent me skipping across the water at over 72 on GPS when the ski decided to take a sharp right turn.
