    1997 Pro 785; bad MAG piston. Western New York

    I have a 97 pro 785 for sale. It ran great for the past 2 years, but just ate the MAG piston at the end of this season. It has an ocean pro head and 93 octane domes. After market impeller (don't remember the exact specs), flame arrestors, and quite a few other after market goods. It did a consistent 63mph on gps, and ripped your arms off getting there.


    It pulled SUPER hard and ran fantastic before the mag let go. It is very clean and in extremely good condition. I don't have the time to deal with it now. I still have my 2000 slx, and that's enough to get me by next summer.

    I can get better pictures for those interested.

    I'm looking for 1200obo for the ski.

    I can be best reached at 716-512-3nineseven8

    The ski is located in Western New York

    Any other pictures of what mods you have on there as well as overall condition? Might stir some interest.

    Its clean! I bought a pro like this blown up.. and tore it down and it had the pto piston blown and looked exactly like yours. Crank and rod bearings were trashed on a 3 cylinders. Maybe yours isn't as bad but I would def check if you plan on selling it or you wont get very much just because of the amount of work it will probably need to check and get it all running again. Good luck and the ski itself is clean!
