    Hydrospace swap

    Since i cant seem to sell my hydrospace, im trying to start preplanning for an engine swap for when the stock motor eventually goes. I am thinking 951 or 1100 but cant find a ton of info on how each actually rides, ive heard the 951s handle a bit better but seem to he alot less around, the 1100 would be easier from the sounds of it but i havent heard much on ride quality. Any opinions on either swap or other options to do with the ski? Any input is appreciated, thanks!

    I have a fresh 951 in an 01 xpl. Less than 30 minutes after completing 3 heat cycles for break in.

    I would go with what ever power plant your more comfortable. I have a 1100. Friend has a 951. Not a whole lot of diff to me. Either way we had to add weight to to front to balance out
    My ski favored the left bad and would hook and do crazy stuff until I added weight I put 20lbs on the right side and 5 down the middle. I experimented with ankle weights until I got it where I wanted.
