    They did, must be only available in countries with no two stroke rules, like Thailand. Dang, does this mean I can slap a 155hp 1200 in a VX hull? ...

    Thanks lugs. I guess the Chicago UPS distribution center in Hodgkins has gone completely down hill. I checked the google reviews of it and there's been a lot of lost packages and massively delayed...

    UPS probably lost my pro 785 crankshaft

    I shipped my pro 785 crankshaft off on the 19th, I went to check tracking today and it's still in the closest distribution center. I was told to file a claim.

    I figure I should start looking for...

    If it was water check your crank bearings and your crank phase.

    You don't need the same amount of power in a smaller ski like an EXR because it weighs less and has less drag in the water. EXR weighs around 550 pounds and the VXR weighs around 740. EXR 110 hp and...

    Why did the failure happen? I find it odd that a fuel injected ski would have an issue like this. Usually people damage things because there's a lack of oil (probably ruled out by the fact it seems...

    I'd have all of them replaced just because it's cheaper to have them rebuilt than it is to fix what would go wrong from the bearing going bad and taking out a lot of other stuff.

    I've used Crankworks in the past and I'm sending another one to Northern Crankshaft this week. Crankworks did a good job rebuilding but it took me a long time to get my crank back. I'll see how...

    I would check your expansion chamber and exhaust system for leaks. Unrelated to Polaris, I had an aftermarket pipe on my 750 SXI with a small leak. What was happening was the pipe and waterbox were...

    Whenever I do anything to a ski I check spark plugs (and you should check piston wash too), just to be safe.

    Depends on the cost, no reason why this wouldn't work on a pro 785, right? If it's under $200 I would be interested in at least one probably. Maybe two but I don't think I could afford two of them at...

    1. Flywheel spins around on the crankshaft
    2. Sensors on the flywheel are read by a stationary sensor on the crank case in the flywheel area...

    I'm not complaining, it's just a supply and demand thing. There's enough demand for a limited resource of old two stroke skis that the prices aren't falling. If people didn't want two strokes, they...

    100% agree with this. shortening the plug wire is just a placebo, the time you take to cut it and put it back on allows something to cool or reset and for spark to come back again. Could be a messed...

    Polaris was 100% ready to release new skis in 2005, they even had the Matrix which was brand new for 2005, and they just stopped in 2004. 2004 was the year they made their first jetboats, too. I...

    Some of us like a violent, rough, aggressive powercurve, and wet machine. The Spark is the closest you can get to a two stroke sit down today. People always assume it's because of the price, but it...

    It took a while for my signature to show up after I set it. Probably some caching stuff with the website, just be patient and set your signature and it'll show up eventually.
