    Buy a Polaris or not?

    I'm in the market for 2 used pwc's.
    As a first time owner and reading as much as I can on this stuff, I find this site and the thread about Polaris dumping their pwc line. I have my eye on a 2000 polaris SLH with 16 hours on a new motor for just under $1800. My question is, should I skip on the Polaris due to parts shortages and no dealer support? Help a rookie out on this decision...would ya?

    Welcome to the Hulk

    This forum would be one of the positive things about Polaris PWC

    Most of the members on here are somewhat biased towards Polaris PWC, but we try to keep it balanced.

    Who would be doing the maintenance and repair work on the machine(s) - Yourself or a professional repair shop?

    No matter what brand PWC you buy, if it is ten years old (or even five), it needs going over to make sure it is ready for the water, and will be reliable.

    Almost any brand and model will need some parts replaced/upgraded, and many things checked/lubricated/adjusted/cleaned...

    What makes an old PWC reliable is the time and effort spent to do this work.

    Around here you can find all the information you would need to evaluate, update, and prepare your Polaris for riding.

    Have a look at the links below
    I am thinking of buying a PWC. Any tips?
