    noobie

    I just bought a 2002 virage tx. the previous owner said that it had been re-ringed and the top end was rebuilt. I don't know that much about skis yet.lol I want to do some things that will improve the performance and reliability of my ski. If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated!
    thanks
    graham

    Hey Graham,Welcome to Green Hulk!

    The TX should be a 1200,3 cylinder. It should be pretty quik for a newbe.
    Does it run smoothly ?

    You should start with a compression test,than work from there.

    Welcome

    A well running Virage TX will go around 60 mph (GPS measured), turning about 6800RPM.

    Is that what you are getting?

    Reliability mostly involves you learning how the machine is put together, what common items need attention, and making sure it is running the way it is supposed to.

    Reverse Flush kit was sold as an option. You can still buy them from Polaris, or aftermarket.

    Captive drain plugs are fairly standard. A good Marine store should have one that matches the hull fitting.

    Check the O-ring on the other captive drain plug. Sometimes they get cracked or deformed and leak water
