    New to PWCs

    Hello everyone, I'm new to PWCs and just purchased my first PWC. It is a '95 Polaris 750 SLT. It's a project and I got it for dirt cheap including the trailer. The ski ran last about 3 years ago, it never had problems the previous owner just stopped riding it. I'm just looking for advice on what to do to get it up and running. I have a bit of a mechanical background so my first steps are going to drain any remaining gas and replace the oil and battery. What would my next best steps be? (I haven't done any of this yet, I'm picking it up this week)

    Welcome

    No need to remove the old oil unless you suspect it has been contaminated.

    Start with my signature links, should get you oriented and headed in the right direction.
