    Good deal???

    Looking to get one and not looking to go broke. What are some of the problems that these ski's have had? About how fast will it run? I have also been looking at a 99 polaris slth that is not running for about $1000. What do you think is the better deal? I am thinking the kawasaki?

    Well, they haven't made Polaris for several years, parts may be a problem.

    The 900 ZXi is a fun 'Ski. It's a pain in the butt to adjust the carbs.

    The trim box has a tendency to get water in it, make sure you check that out when you buy it because it's expensive to fix. Install the trim cable seal from an Ultra 150, and put some sealant around the trim motor box where the case goes together.

    Also, check the oil lines. They're probably old and brittle. Replace them with polyurethane lines and secure them properly.
