    Welcome to the Hulk! It is highly recommended that you read through all of this information before you ride. Some preventative maintenance that is critical and could cause serious damage if not done: http://polarispwcknowledge.shorturl.com/

    +1 Very Important to follow BFC's advise. Its is VERY easy to pop a hole in a piston because you are in a rush to get out on the water. Been there, done that.

    Well Just my luck there's already something wrong. The screen on the handlebars doesnt work. I have read through the link and I think I will do that fuel upgrade. I am off work all next week so I believe I will take my time and get it all checked out before I take it out on the water. What would cause a hole in the piston?

    Are the digits faded on the MFD or is there nothing at all visible? There is a 1/4amp fuse in the E-box that powers the MFD. It is very easy to pop that fuse if the battery arcs when connecting the terminals.

    Piston holes are caused by a lean condition. The OEM single outlet fuel pumps get weak over time and can't supply enough fuel. The OEM hose routing put the MAG cylinder at the end of the line which allowed PTO and CEN to get enough fuel to run normally but MAG was starved. The result was excess heat due to the lean condition and it would melt a hole in the center of the piston. A triple outlet pump provides equal volume to each carb and avoids starving an individual cylinder.

    Thanks everyone, it's becoming more clear to me how these engines work.
    Anyone know where I can get a triple outlet pump?
    And it was the fuse on the MFD........... thanks for the tip on the fuse.

    DO NOT oversize the replacement fuse for the MFD!!! or you may as well smash it to bits with a hammer.

    www.watcon.com for the fuel pump.

    +1 on the 1/4 amp fuse for the MFD. This fuse is available at Radio Shack #270-1002. 4 to a pack about $3.00
