    Change fuel, fog oil in the cylinders before you turn it over, new spark plugs, change oil and filter & i would do the super charger because of the time that has past and don't want to take the chance, what is a few hundred for the rebuild of the super charger vs couple thousand for motor rebuild

    I just hope the hrs are true and someone didnt change it with B.U.D.S megatech

    You definitely want to replace the ceramic washers so al long as it's out, get it rebuilt.
    With having to send off the ECU for a key, every thing should be back and you should have a great time riding.

    Hope the guy didn't go to jail for stealing skis.

    I would verify that it has the updated valves on the head too. You can pull the valve cover and take a pic of the stems right under the rocker. If they have a 72 stamped on them they need replacing. 2006 was the turnover year for the update and have seen the older valves on them. The only other weak link would be flywheel bolts.

    Being that it is a practically new ski i would do the valves, flywheel bolts, and supercharger rebuild with updated kit. You migh invest another 1000 but that thing will run and run afterwards.
