    OK, here's how to do it:

    Use .025" stainless steel safety wire. It comes in one pound rolls, which will last most people several lifetimes. You can probably bum some from an airplane mechanic at...

    OK, I guess they don't have the little loop on the end like the OEM clamps do. I like spring clamps generally, but I think the Kawasaki ones are a bit weak.

    I would never recommend removing the Yamaha oil injection system. The hoses MUST be properly secured with either .025" stainless steel wire, or Oetiker clamps. Tie-wraps don't cut it, and Yamaha...

    I reiterate, Start the engine, THEN turn on the water. Turn off the water, THEN turn off the engine. NEVER allow water to run unless the engine is running!!! You don't need to 'time' the water...

    Remove the spark plug wires and ground them. Remove the spark plugs and cover the holes with an old towel. Stand back and spin the engine over with the starter. If there is fuel in the crankcase,...

    A little oil goes a looooong way. If it had oil spilled in it in the past, it's going to be hard to eliminate it. Try a garden sprayer and pour some liquid laundry soap in there and swish it...

    Wow! I never knew that Polaris made a standup! Actually, that looks really nice! I certainly wouldn't pay $7000 for it, though! Parts are probably scarce as hen's teeth.

    Welcome aboard, Texas Scrambler!

    Where to begin? Well, do NOT just hop on and ride! It's 20 years old and it probably needs some updating & general maintenance.

    Oh! I guess I never noticed those. I suspect that it has something to do with metering the fuel pressure for the return line or something. I don't know for sure. I do know that the carbs are all...

    Hell! At 62, you're still a pup!

    Yea, this Coronavirus nonsense is ridiculous. Being on the water is the safest place to be. Saltwater is even better because it's a natural disinfectant.

    You need to buy the needle & seat, P/N 16030-3704.

    You may also need the arm, P/N 16055-3702; spring, P/N 92144-3764; and screw, 92009-3712.

    A water temp gauge is pretty useless. These engines will blow up before the gauge...

    I don't know if you have to pull the engine to get the fuel pickup out or not. Sometimes the service manual will say to pull it, when you really don't have to. I've pulled fuel pickups/internal...

    The trim was a major problem on that model. Water could actually get in through the cable. That's why later 'Skis have rubber bellows on the trim cable.
