    I have owned it since new it has never been back to a dealer its 100% oem.

    Basically copper everywhere in the engine. Anyone with experience with this get away with tearing it down flushing it out and running it? Or does it score all the bearings etc...

    The engine needs to be disassembled. 2005 used soft stainless bolts. I bought my ski at 30hrs, replaced the bolts at 33hrs and I was able to back them out by hand.
