    I think the only 'major' issue with those skis was the old ignition systems were known for issues. Polaris does have an update kit available but at the tune of around $300 for the kit its usually just as well to run it till it breaks.

    The 700 twins are great motors,except as stated,all the early domestic ignitions are prone to fail sooner or later. They normally are pretty good on fuel. Is it running now or no spark?

    DO the update if it doesn't already have it. I love my 700. Lots of power from that little thing. I bet it would be lots of fun in a SL hull
