    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...

    You can have them rebuilt at a place like Crankworks, Midwest Crank (if you can get ahold of the guy), and Northern Crank. I've used Crankworks and they were good, I'm going to try Northern Crank...

    The basic idea of how these ignition systems works is

    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.

    If you want to sell it to someone who will sleeve it, fix it, and use it for a personal ski I'd be interested.

    Try and buy one and you'll see that they're not entirely a major player. I don't think they're very big in the USA. You can get several aftermarket hulls for stand ups, and you're left to put your...

    An SBT engine will cost you a lot more in repairs over time than the up front cost, compared to original or properly done yourself, lol.
