    2000 polaris virage

    new boat to me this year. a friend who has an older polaris ski was with me. got it into the water started and ran great up up full speed, after about 20 min tooling around it just would not go anymore. would kinda launch then drop off and rev at about 3500 rpm. checked and changed plugs. seemed to make it worse????

    Welcome

    Any warning messages on the display?

    Fuel or oil level low?

    Do some diagnostics. Cylinder compression check.

    What is the service history on the machine?

    Has the fuel system been serviced? Carbs rebuilt?

    See my signature links for common issues and maintenance items.

    sounds like the overheat sensor is kicking in and doing its job. I would check for overheat issues. When the overheat sensor kicks in it limits RPM's to 3500.

    took it in and had it looked at and compression was bad in cylinder 1. also rod was knocking. looks like a total rebuild. i called all the boat stores in my area and they all refered me to the same shop. no one will work on them here.
