    Might buy a 700

    I found a SLT 700 and the seller says "No spark" from my readings, just a new battery is the fix? Advice? He wants 225 and it's SUPER CLEAN. I'm looking for a 3 seater for my lady as a Sea-Doo XP (97) is too much for a newbie and the SL750 might be a bit much.

    1996, he said he put in a new battery and still, no spark, though "it ran last year"

    I'm guessing I'd have to pull the motor?

    Sorry for a double post. I read my in depth about the upgrade kit, and, HOLLY BAT CRAP it's expensive for than the price of the ski! If I were to go used, with my local salvage yard, what EXACTLY would I need to tell him, Polaris, what? The ski is $225, not bad, but if I have to drop 500 into it, not worth it. I

    So you drop 500 and you have 725 into it. Thats still a good deal.

    I get what you're saying, but now knowing more about it now than I did, turns me away. I could drop $500 in my SL750, or $500 into my Sea-Doo. If the part was say, 200 or 300 I could see myself jumping. Unless anyone wants to come to AZ and I'll hold it for them. Just a kind gesture. Girlfriend is already pissed I spend more time with my hands in my skis than I spend time with her. "happy wife, happy life"
