    Location of second HIN, Hidden Hull ID on 2000 Genesis?

    I just bought what I thought was a 2000 Polaris Genesis via craigslist.

    My problem is the hull ID# on the Genesis is for a 1995 Polaris 750SL.

    Does anyone know where the hidden 2nd hull ID# is for this particular model?

    I would love to help the police in this investigation and also to find out who this jetski actually belongs too.
    Thanks for your help in advance!

    the 99 in my backyard has them on the left side between the front & rear motor mounts. (under the exhaust with the motor in). Good luck, hope you get your money back.

    On the Virage hulls I think the second HIN plate is glued up front below or in front of the storage bucket.

    Other possible locations are around the engine or inside the rear of the hull.

    If the culprit pried off the old plate the glue blobs used to attach it (no rivets) may also be gone, in which case there may only be a ghost mark where the glue was.

    Post up some pics of the Ski. Maybe it IS actually a Genesis that the guy lost the title to, and PUT the 750 HIN plate on so he could sneak by under the radar with a "legal" ski

    I googled the pic and it is a Genesis FFI jetski. Mechanic says it is either a 2000 or 2001. She posted it on craigslist as a 2000.

    Here is what it looks like.

    My other problem is it has no spark (just to add insult to injury) It worked for 1 day and sputtered like fuel lines just needed to be cleaned out. Thanks for all the help!

    It easy to tell by looking at the top of the engine. Post a photo of the engine.

    Spark plugs sticking straight up means carburetor. Spark plugs at a low angle towards the air intake means Ficht fuel injected.

    Diagnostics for a Ficht engine are very different from a carb'ed engine.

    Sputtered like the fuel lines needed cleaning? On Polaris carburetor engines if the entire fuel system is not 100% clean, including the carburetor internals, you risk engine damage from lean burn. Fuel hose cleaning? Just replace the hoses with new.

    I would straighten out the legal mess before sticking any time or money in it. My Polaris skis 94-99 all had an ID plate glued to the front of the hull under the storage bucket.
