    Question 1997 Polaris SLT780

    Having just purchased a 1987 Polaris SLT780, that was only run last year a few hours and then stored for the winter, what should I do to get it running for this Summer? I have added new gas and charged the battery. Paid $1400 for the Wave Runner and trailer, is that a realisable price?

    I moved your post here for more answers. It sounds like you are on the right track. Give it a test spin and check the spark plugs often for a nice brown color. Give the fuel lines and filters a good look-see. Pic we love pics!!!

    1997 Polaris

    Thanks for the reply, finally this A. M. I turned the engine over and it fired, restarted with water attached and ran it for maybe a minute, seem to run well, just smoked a lot, I think it just needs a good running. Do you suggest using a produch in the gas or in the carb's called Seafoam.

    I have never use sea-foam but other swear buy it. The best is a good clean fuel system if you need to add stuff you have a problem. Just my 2 cents.

    Question 1997 Polaris

    THANKS AGAIN, BUT i STILL WOULD LIKE AN OPINION AS TO THE GOING PRICES OF A 1997 SLT 780 Polaris/ trailer, I am still wondering if $1400 is in the ball park.

    1997 for $1400 That's a good deal if it is solid with trailer.

    You can check Ebay and see what they are selling for there. That'll tell you what people are willing to pay.
