    new here, just picked up a polaris ski. thanks for all your help thus far...

    I picked up an '01 virage with 80hrs. I had the once over before i bought it and the carb was rebuilt and some minor cosmetic damage was fixed. Other than that, the shop said it was running strong and had plenty of life left. Its home is at the Lake of the Ozarks and I live in it will get the first test ride next weekend.

    Hopefully I have a problem free summer with it.....

    Welcome to the Hulk

    Do have a look through my signature links.

    Take the time to understand what maintenance is recommended, and what the common upgrade and problem areas are.

    Even though a professional shop has checked it over, they may or may not have covered all the important areas.

    Things that are work checking/doing;
    - remove jet pump and check pump bearings, drive shaft splines, impeller blade clearance
    - If your model has a reverse lever, has it become stiff?
    - Oil tank level sender - any oil seepage or leakage around tank opening?
    - Throttle cable slack, oil pump cable correctly adjusted?
    - and so on...
