    Damn It-I hate deals

    Damn It-I hate deals, Was doing a little search today and ran across a '97? SL750 on a decent galvinized single place trailer for 300 frostys.

    Of course it has a burnt cylinder on it. It's about 5 miles from work, I talked to the guy today and it's suppose to have a great MFD,over all the picture makes the ski look good. So I guess I'll have to go take a look at it tomorrow.
    Guess I won't pass it up for that price.

    The trailer and the good MFD are worth the 300 hundee. (175 and125)

    Wow, I wouldn't pass that up either! I can't even get a used trailer here for $300. Part it out and you could make some money! In fact, if you do part it out and it has a good crankshaft, I call dibs!!!

    I see a lot of these laying around yards around lake saint clair. most look like they have sitting in the sun for years. with dirt n dust on them. I bet I could get a few pretty cheap.

    Probably that PTO piston in every one too! lol

    Yep. I got my '94 SLT750 for $300. Trailer was junk, but the engine had been replaced in the last few years. 120PSI even on all 3 cylinders and it has spark. The ski just needs the 3-outlet pump upgrade, the carbs run through, and a couple of minor fixes here and there.

    I worked out a deal and got a very nice Karavan 2X trailer to fit both this ski and my existing '96 SLT780.

    I also have a line on a '95 SL750 that has no spark. I think a little multi-meter detective work should find the problem on this ski. I haven't checked compression on this one, but the PTO cylinder is discolored so it's been real hot at some point. If I can't get this one running, it would still make a great donor ski for parts, and possibly some parts to put on the market.

    And to think, 18 months ago I was considering selling the 780, now I keep acquiring more skis. Geez, this really is some kind of weird addiction. Is there a cure for this or does it just keep getting worse (at least until the money runs out)?

    KJ

    From what I know about addictions, this will just get worse. The money will come from somewhere. In fact you may start buying and selling this stuff just to fund your own addiction. You will end up with a fleet of skis and all of them will eventually be all tricked out with triple pipes and the biggest pistons you can stuff into the cylinders. You may even try to add more power with things like superchargers or nitrous oxide. Its all about the rush!

    I know the feeling Danno.

    All kinds of deals out there and I have no $$$ right now. DOH!!!

    John it does get worse.....

    J, you just summerized my wholw pwc experience.

    What amazes me are the # of 750's out there. They were only made for 3 years 92-95, even though that one is a 97. LOL
