    Nice looking ride. After doing some detective work, i've come to the conclusion that your ski is a continuation(renamed model line) of the 1999-2000 900STX(but with a updated paint scheme). This is also the same ski as a 1998-1999 1100STX(minus the 1100 engine). The only things i suggest is a primer kit (search post under PEVO for my install w/pics). Trust me your battery will last ALOT longer with a primer kit installed. Only other thing would be to check your oil injection lines regularly (i converted to premix but thats just my preference) Enjoy your ride & stay away from shallow sand/gravel bars..or you will be repairing your pump again! If your going to beach it, then come it briskly & kill the engine and coast to shore.

    EDIT: I see your premixing too. Ratios for kawa triples is 40:1 thats what i mix at anyway

    Look on the front of the engine to see if the oil pump is there. It should have some rubber hoses that go to each carburetor and one that goes to the oil tank. If you have the oil pump, I'd leave it and just run the injection system. If you do this, you have to verify that it's working and it's a really good idea to replace the hoses with polyurethane hose. Secure the hoses with stainless safety wire.

    x2 on the primer, it will save a lot of wear & tear on the starter. I would leave the chokes on, because sometimes you just need a little bit of choke to start when it's warm.

    There is a flat plate on the front cover of the engine. It has a couple of hoses going to it. Water circulates there and cools the stator. I've found a couple of those that are plugged, so remove one of the hoses and try to blow through it.

    look at the dates steve.

    if the ski still looks as good with no problems 1800 is low, trailer still good.
