    Pull it. Rebuild it. Enjoy summer. They aren't complicated rebuilds and you will know them inside and out. Do carb rebuilds while its apart using ONLY genuine Mikuni rebuild kits.

    If you have a little bit of time, a shop manual, a set of tools, and some patience, you will be fine. You can definitely rebuild the engine, carburetor, replace the engine seals, and all hoses. OEM parts are generally considered preferable, and if you want to keep the ski, buy the best parts you can afford. good luck michael

    Before you decide to rebuild, research the cost of parts/repairs so you have some idea of the cost of the project. A crank rebuild may run ~$500, gasket sets ~$200, cylinder repairs if needed can run ~$250ea, pistons kits are ~$100ea. I don't want to scare you off, because it can be very rewarding (and occasionally frustrating). Also, if you are contemplating an engine build, learn how to pressure test the engine before installing it back in the ski. With my 3 cylinder engines, a cherry picker has been invaluable in making engine R&R a simple task. For the 2 cylinder engines, it may not be a requirement.
