    2001 Polaris Virage TX 1200?

    I am looking at purchasing a 2001 Polaris Virage 1200 TX 1200. Is there any known problems with that particular year and make that anyone out there knows about that they could share with me? What questions should I be asking the seller? How many hours on the engine become too many? Or what other questions would you ask?

    Thanks in advance

    Overall the Virage is well regarded. Stable, rides nicely in anything but really rough water.

    The red domestic engines are reliable and fuel consumption is 'reasonable' for a PWC. Top speed will be around 60mph.

    Check cylinder compression. Engine hours are not as important as current actual condition of the engine. Ask about maintenance, engine fogging during storage, and general care and servicing.

    Do check for excessive cracking of the molded hull ribs around and forward of the front motor mounts. Minor and hairline rib cracking is common, and not a concern. Heavy cracking and many chunks missing from the ribs means the hull should be reinforced with epoxy (on the inside).
