buying a pro 785
im going to look at a 97 polaris pro 785 . iv searched came up with a few things on this forum . but what are some things i should look for ? my other question is everyone says they're high maintenance, can anyone define high maintenance. i know all 2 strokes require more maint. but my sl just runs no problems other than my speedo suddenly stays stuck on zero. thanx in advance for any input .

Well, the SL speedometer can probably be easily fixed. Have you investigated why it is not working?
The Pro 785 is essentially a race tuned engine with triple tuned exhaust pipes and electronically controlled exhaust valves. They can be reliable but it requires significant effort to get everything just right and maintain it that way.

i have not looked into the sl it was end of season , figured i would wait till spring . isnt there a hose that runs up to the mfd ? i talked to the guy on the phone about the pro . he sounds very knowledgeable about skis so im sue its set up right . is there anything obvious that i should look for ? heres a pic tell me what you think Attachment 356209

if you get a GOOD 785 they are no more maintenance then any other ski just check it over good and make sure the valves open around 4000 rpms when you give it some throttle and check compression should be around 125lb Great ski's when taken care of
