    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...

    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...

    Keith I really like you and appreciate all you do for the forums, but a lot of us Polaris guys like Polaris because they always did things different. They didn't put stereos on their skis or come up...

    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...

    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...

    Even before this, 750 SX(i) values changed a lot here. They were about $1,500 when I got mine, SXR800 beat it down to about $1,000 for a while, when SXR 800 was discontinued the price started to...

    Forum ate my post. But here's the scoop with stand ups. A lot of stand up people absolutely hate the new 4 stroke ones. A 1500 SXR weighs more than a Pro 785 and a lot of two stroke, two seater jet...

    Those Fuji engines are just ridiculous. My first ski was an SL 750, and I was 13. It got totally abused, hydrolocked at least twice. I put so many hours on it compression fell down across all three...

    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.

    Sea Doo always comes across as a more family friendly and luxury brand to me. I can see why they didn't, they're always adding luxury features and there's nothing luxurious about a two stroke.

    This is probably a big reason why that guy from Polaris said it depends on who wins the next election. I could easy see Trump rolling back some of those restrictions to get an American company back...

    I do really like the EXR. It's a huge step in the right direction for me. I think 4 strokes have been working towards getting smaller and more agile.



    I dunno, I just got off a 160hp 4 stroke...

    I'm just saying some people like that violent ride. There's faster things than a Pro 785 out there, but I love them because they are violent, loud, mean, they feel like they want to hurt you when you...

    Fair enough, but GP 1800 is speed limited by the computer. I have a feeling that 4-stroke having a narrower power-band is trying to be offset by making high power engines and then throttling them...

    I think Polaris could still make a somewhat competitive two stroke performance ski. I don't think it could compete once you start playing with a 4 stroke ECU, but stock for stock I think it could...

    I don't think personal watercraft were ever a seriously profitable business. The only companies that make them and have been successful make a lot of other things to float themselves. BRP owns a ton,...

    I don't think they will. AFAIK Polaris PWC were never really profitable, but they didn't lose money either. I thought Polaris bailed on PWC because they got sued. In 2004, Polaris lost a lawsuit for...
