A Gracious Thank You to Lugs785 (Bob)
Bob did me a HUGE favor in helping me get my 785 up and running again. He went above and beyond anything expected and got me up and running in the matter of a couple of days. I fired it up for the first time last night and spent 4 hours riding today. I cant say enough about the way he helped.

Is there any other way to enjoy a 785 other than WFO?? It was so hard to break it in right, but I did. Compared to rgards and my original engine this thing seems wayyyyy smoother. We did a couple plug chops on it and they are fat. Gonna tune it for 7800ish and ride it. Imma do a compression test in the morning and will post.

I agree, Lugs is a very generous guy. We appreciate it, thanks Bob.

Bob is a great guy, and a perfect poster boy for the Newsgroup..
When he started he had no prior knowledge about 785's and tuning, rebuilds, etc.. He has participated in the groups,asked all the questions necessary, and spent the time learning what is needed to rebuild and fine tune the Polaris watercraft.. I have spent plenty of time assisting him, and I enjoy helping Newsgroup members as they are learning the tricks.. Now it's nice to see Bob (and others) passing along the information to newbies.. This is why the GH is so good, and I feel the learning curve here is better than any other group..
