    There's some interesting stuff going on on that site...

    I wonder how their parts support is. Might be a good source for discontinued Virage parts...

    Welcome to the Hulk

    Is your PWC actually made by Weifang Sea World Boat Co., Ltd, or is it another Chinese brand?

    GH member zephyrlius has a Yongwang Polaris replica, which we discussed in this thread;

    You do need to read up on these things.

    Not just on your model, but also on safe PWC operation and marine rules and safety.

    Only Yamaha brand Waverunners have the visibility water spout. It can be added to other brands, if it is important to you.

    An electric bilge pump mounts down low in the hull, and it draws water directly into the bottom of the pump.

    There is a hose exit, often high on the hull at the rear, where the water gets pumped out. On some models, the bilge pump water exit is down low in the pump tunnel.

    There must be an anti-siphon air bleed in the water exit hoses if there is any chance of the exit fitting being below water level. Polaris uses an plastic elbow with a tiny air hole as an anti-siphon suction break (first photo).

    thanks for that i was wondering what that hole was lol. BTW been looking around this site and cant find anything on how to maintain the polaris jetski after using it in the water for example flushing it etc, step by step would be good. when flushing the motor should the engine be running the previous owner said not to, just turn the nut where the garden tap is in the ski anticlock and run normal water is that right?


    One last thing my mate and i was debating weather the polaris virage has an engine oil to put oil, like a dip stick on normal car. I told him there wasnt, thats why you put the 2 stroke oil in! am i right guys?
    sorry to hassle you guys you dont know how dump i am on jetski lol

    thanks alot this site is awesome better then the Australian site
