I've been running and modding these motors for about 10 years
now. I have 2 running and two on the shelf right now.

According to PSI Performance whom I bought race pipes from some
years ago, the stock 700 put out 120hp. With their pipes it
went up to 128hp. With their pipes and extensive cylinder porting they got 135hp. That seems to be about tops for this motor without using custom built cylinders. PSI did make some custom cylinders for this, and I think they got about 150+hp out of it, but thats just my foggy memory. That was also with their own custom built BigAir carbs at 500 bucks apiece.

Wiseco/US Chrome developed a 790cc bigbore kit for the motor.
To work properly the heads need to be modified and the exhaust port reshaped. I have these kits installed on 2 of my sleds.
One has extensively ported cylinders with extra exhaust boost
ports added, to make it like the Black Magic race jugs. I don't
think I am getting much more power than stock hp with all my
mods. I'd like to dyno it sometime. All the mods are very incremental. You need to tweak everything from the engine, clutching, and track/suspension to really FEEL a difference.

I've got alot in my 88 and yeah stock was 120! The 88 had a bit more agresive porting and timing perhaps, I've got the DG pipes and 44 carbs, lots of porting & head work as well as Boyseen reeds and I bet I'm at 135?? But the sled also weighs close to 700 pounds!!!!

I had a 93 EFI and I would not recomend one! That is the biggest and heaviest made!
A 95 or a ZR would be better! The 91-2 were likly the best years! But thats not taking style into consideration!

I like mine a lot. Sure it's heavy to manhandle around (don't get it stuck alone), that's why I have a drive through garage.
With the suspension set up that I have though, it's a real nice trail sled. Handles great at any speed, corners like it's on rails and can run with the newer sleds any day. Gps clocked at 110 mph.

No, both feed the carbs, those 48's take a lot of fuel.
Clean the carbs and use Seafoam in the gas.

Throttle position sensors.
Unplug and connect the wires together to bypass.
Seafoam is a gas additive that cleans,removes moisture, and stabilizes the fuel without adding alcohol to it.
