    Taking on water

    I am definately new to the jet ski market. I just bought a Polaris SL 750 from my brother. He said he was riding it and it was taking on water. He dried that out and allowed it to sit in the water all night and no water the next morning. The next day he rode it and again it had water in it. Any suggestions on what could be causing this? Is it worthing the cost of repair?

    Thanks

    uanay, I'd also like to say WELCOME to the green Hulk Forums!!

    I'd also run it on the trailer while it's at the ramp and make sure you have no exhaust or cooling hose leaks while the boat runs.
    While the boats on shore you can also start filling the hull and see if you have water exiting the hull. Tip it back so that you only fill the back section of your ski.
    Let us know what you find.

    Can I check it hooked to to a water hose, or do I need to take it to the lake?

    You won't get a water leak from the thru-hull fitting while on the hose.
    Either take it to the lake or start filling the hull with water.

    Do you know where I can get a repair manual for this model?

    Manuals at:

    www.overtons.com

    www.sbtontheweb.com

    www.partsland.com has parts and parts breakdowns. Great company.

    While you are reparing this , suggest you re-seal and re -bearing the jet pump.

    You can purchase new seals for the mid bearing from the "00" year on partsland.

    www.denniskirk.com has pump re-build kits.

    Lot of options for this ski

    e-bay usually has something, look for the factory manual as it has better detail and specifications. I think the cost is about the same.
    I like to use the parts breakdown at Atlantic Powersports as they keep it current, with superceded part numbers. You can also check price with just the part number and see what other models the part fits.
