    1997 Polaris SLT 780

    I am in the process of purchasing a SLT 780 (1997) for $1400. Is that a fair price, taking into consideration normal usage and condition. The owner tells me that he has noticed a surging as he takes off, after reaching normal cruising rpm's it runs great, what might be the problem and price to fix.

    boat, you should make sure you can get the problem remedied before spending your hard earned cash.
    Possible solutions

    Carb cleaning
    Check fuel lines for swelling and/or kinks
    Cutting plug wires back 1/8-1/4 inch

    before you buy any waverunner, always check compression in cylinders! Also how old is the gas?
