    96 Polaris SLT 780 Salt/Fresh Water & Digital Display problem

    Since this is my first time owning a ski I am going slow and need all the help I can get. Here's my question: Do I need to do anything special since I will be riding in fresh water and the ski has been in salt water? I have ran it 2 times for not more than 1 1/2 minutes. Saw some sand come out but everything else sounded good (did have white smoke coming from the back? Does that have to do with mixture?).
    Another question is about my digital display. How do you get into where the fuse is? I don't have a manual and from the pics it looks like I should be able to find it. Is it a sealed box that I have to open (screws). If so do I have to use anything special to seal it back.
    Thanks again for any help. Ski on!!!

    Nothing special going from salt to fresh water riding just normal maintenance. The 1/4 amp MFD fuse is located in the same black box the spark plugs wires run from. The box has a reusable rubber gasket seal. The smoke is normal for 2 stroke engines and will lessen once the ski is warmed up and in the water.
