    Smile Got my first 785 pro today!

    I've owned almost every ski made at least once. One ski I never owned or actually saw in person is a 785 pro. Finally got one today! It's a 97 with a ton of hotseat parts on it,umi steering ect. Friend picked it up for me a few hours away so I haven't seen it in person yet, but I'm excited. It's never been registered. Comes with the original Mso. It's a ex ijsba limited ski that's been sitting ? Long. Can't wait to get it home and start going through it.

    Ok-have it ready for the water now. Rebuilt carbs-pulled mag cylinder to get pv unstuck-removed and cleaned all pv's- removed tank and cleaned-replaced all fuel lines-checked all hoses etc etc etc. Sounds great- hoping to maybe hit the water tomorrow. Most of the factory decals are missing as well as all rub rails. I removed the rest of the decals and buffed it out- going to order pads in red this week and getting online now to look for rub rails. Heres a few pics after washing-before buffing-it really looks great.

    I won't have it home until Saturday. When I get it I will post up everything I find. He sent me some pics on text of the engine bay just so I could verify it was a 785 but you couldn't see the details well

    Was rough! Ive had about a whole 2 hours ride time on my superjets this year! Only sit downs ive ridden have been test rides. My GPR is in a million parts and Ive sold about 10 of the rentals skis since I had to relocate off the water until we rebuild this fall/winter. I figured this would be a fun ski to just get out and carve on, I cant wait to get it onn the water!

    I finally finished rebuilding mine and have taken it out twice now. It is now top of the list of my favorite skis. Really would like to get another to fill a double trailer I have sitting around.
