Thread: SL1050....

    SL1050....

    Found a Polaris SL1050 on craigslist for 1600 dollars...didnt really have any info about it on the page, and doesnt seem to be very knowledgeable (spelling) on it. He only knows that he paid 2500 for it 2 years ago and he told me that he would give it to me for 1300. He said their is 80 hours on it......


    I'm going to look at it today, what should i be worried about, and what should i check?

    Look for any cracks in the hull around the ribs,Take a compression Gauge and check that all the cyls are close to the same. Try to get a look into the pump(take a flashlight) and look for blistering and corrosion.
