    If you do not chamfer the ports and round them out, the rings will get stuck and break. You have to very carefully round them out without lowering or raising them. I use a long, small file. I have...

    Squish is the distance between the dome of the head and the top of the piston. It's smaller on the edges, you can take a soft metal rod, like a welding rod for tig welding, bend it so it fits into...

    I would optimistically check the pump first and see if that's the problem, but I think there's something wrong with your crank or bottom end and it's just a matter of time before it causes serious...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...
