    2001 polaris virage

    I am trying to find out what this ski is worth. I picked it up recently, but its not running. I was told they left a drain plug out and it filled up part way with salt water one night while they had it parked on an island and it wouldn't restart. I haven't taken it apart yet, but its in great shape and bet its something simple. I haven't even separated the engine from the jet pump to see which is frozen.

    Anyone have any ideas on what this is worth as is before I even attempt to rebuild?

    First I'd find out if the engine did or didn't take on water, my guess is it did and you'll need to build it. The reason for a non start could be the waterbox is filled with water. I'd split the box and see what you have inside.
    Any pictures??

    non start

    That is pretty much the only thing I have done. It doesn't appear to have any water inside. The electronic components appear pretty good.

    Does anyone have a manual with the resistance on the electronics that I can spec out?

    If you go to my gallery and look at the tech section you'll find testing a domestic testing.
    Also go to the tech section here and find the article by 4strokepolaris about checking the domestic ignition system.

    ph2ocraft...I was looking at your albums. All very cool btw. I'm looking at the pics with the stand up skis. I've never ridden one before but there is only one word that comes to my head when I think of myself on one....suicide.

    LOL I too have all but given them up, maybe twice a year but that's it.
    I'm too old, fat and the knees are done (knee replacement in 1 month). Those are my excuses and I'm sticking to them.

    Actually back in the day we used to ride them all the time, now it's time for the kids to take over. I still have my old 550 from this 03 photo.
