    I understand, but in this case lake test just means taking it off the trailer for a minute. Not going to WOT it out across the lake. Mainly just want to leak test it first, then take it out for a minute to put a smile on my face then pack it up for the season.

    I don't expect at this point to have a lot of time left to get this all done before April/May when I can start working on it again. Doctorate studies are rough.

    I have been looking around but am not seeing anything. Anyone know how I would go about lubing the steering cable for this? I am having trouble figuring out how you get the shroud off first of all. I do have a lube kit, but getting to the cable has been a struggle. I just don't see how you get this shroud off (the part just behind the steering assembly that houses the display).

    After further thought about this, I have also decided to get all repairs completed before taking this out to the lake again. No sense taking any chances now that I have it running again. Just means I don't get to play until next summer but hey that's the price you pay for loving Polaris craft I guess lol.

    I believe it was one you had suggested in a thread somewhere else.

    You may not need to get at the handlebar end of the steering cable. If you can force feed the lube into the steering cable from the jet pump end, that might be enough. The wet end is often where it corrodes, so lube at that end has a good chance of helping the cable.

    Finally had a warm day that I didn't have to spend doing homework and got a lot done today. The steering cable is still a bit tight so I think I may try to replace it in the spring. For now it is winterized and tucked away for the winter. The reverse motor was such a pain to install, but it
    works great. The old reverse motor was basically a hulk of rusted metal.

    • oil filter changed
    • put garden hose quick disconnect on
    • winterize jet ski (anti-freeze, fogging, sta-bil)
    • reverse motor replaced
    • steering cable lubed

    And what's left:

    • replace steering cable
    • fuel pressure regulator upgrade
    • ride test & find water leak(s)

    I don't know if I am keeping it or getting something else to tinker on but if I do keep it:

    • finish seats
    • replace traction mats
    • heat gun plastic parts to liven up the color
    • find an oem cover

    A wise person I know suggests that tight cables can be greatly improved by disconnecting on both ends and then spinning the cable innards with a drill. Worth a shot
