    Question Purchasing SLX 1050

    Hey everyone, I came from PWCToday to here. I found that the Polaris' community on Greenhulk is much more active! I'm happy to have found this place.

    I'm purchasing an SLX 1050, and I've been doing research as to what to do prior to putting in an offer. From what I see, I should do the following:

    - Compression Test
    - Check to see if the new ignition update is installed

    ... and that's all I can see so far. I am a complete noob at this, so I don't know how to do a compression test nor do I know what to look for to see if the ignition update kit is installed. Can anyone help me out ?

    Also, something that got me a bit upset was that there was condensation inside the engine bay, there was a little bit of water on the compartment's floor and I guess caused condensation, it's on a trailer and we tried lifting it up a bit to have it roll out of the drain plug but it so little of water it couldn't really get out. I had him leave the seat off a bit to have it escape, is that okay?

    Welcome to the Hulk

    Best advice is to start reading, and keep reading

    Use the Search function - almost everything you might want to ask has probably already been asked, and answered.

    It is very common for water and condensation to be present inside a PWC hull. Air drying with the seat off is a good technique. In general, some small amounts of water in the bottom of the hull is not an issue.

    Have a look at the links below, and also look at the Polaris Tech and FAQ sections on Greenhulk.

    I just bought a Polaris PWC - what should I do?

    welcome to the Hulk. You never really get all the water out of a hull unless you really go nuts and sponge every nook and the there is under the engine how do you get that. Tip the ski up and let it run to the back. I like to leave the seat off on a sunny day, also take the storage buckets out and leave the hood open.
