    My 1st Ski

    Looking for some info this is my first ski 2001 Genisis.
    What type Oil should I use
    What grade of Gas is best
    Spark Plugs
    any thing I should know or look out for

    I will be on lake Erie in the western basin. Thought it would be nice to have so I dont have to take the boat out all the time.

    Thanks Keith

    Welcome to the Hulk. Try using the search button and check out the tech section as well. You have a domestic motor, so anything "Fuji" doesn't pertain to your ski.

    Hi Keith,according to your picture,your Genisis is carbureted?
    Service manual calls for 87 octane non-Oxygenated gas or 89 Oxygenated,if you stick with 89 you'll be fine.
    Oil is ;TC-W3 rating.A synthetic would be best.Make sure it is for oil injected systems.
    Plugs are NGK brand # BPR9ES

    Hi Keith, welcome to the Green Hulk Forums!!

    How long have you had your ski? Do you know any history about it?

    Just picked it up 12/23/07
    wont be able to try it untill spring. It has 41.0 hours on it, did a compresion test all cylinders between 150-155(thats with fogging oil in cyl) I think it needs a new battery has not been used in 2 years I bought it from a friend said if anything is wrong with it send him the bill, so it should be ok may need to clean carb from sitting for 2 years.

    Double trailer ancor 5 vest cover tow rope $2900.

    Awesome! Sounds like you got a great deal on a great ski. That compression is spot on. I do agree, you should check/clean the carbs before running it in the spring.

    Of course, you will need to find something to fill the empty spot on that trailer!! LOL!

    Can you post some photos, exterior and engine area?

    Have you checked the HIN with a Polaris dealer to verify that all outstanding Service Bulletins for your model have been completed?

    Might also have the Polaris service database updated with you as the owner - dealer can do that, I think.
