Whatever!! since I had only my 1st breakdown in 6yrs of salt water riding-and would have happen if I only rode fresh I don't buy your post-if you don't take care of your stuff or ride it regularly through the yrs no matter what you ride in, salt or fresh ( and I see blue paint which means the classic Polairs stuff) its going to happen -mechanical stuff gets old thats life-if you don't ride regularly and winterize-or when it breaks down and you don't get to it right away it looks like your picture, or it justs wears out that whats happens. I know I'm just venting after yrs of reading of non-salt riders BS posts about Ocean riding when they don't ride in the ocean and I'm tried of it-so sorry but thats my 2 cents.
But I still Love all my Polaris Bros-just want to set things straight

my loud _ss has to jump in on this 1
i live in a salty area ,and i have to say
I HAVE NEVER flushed my skis or outboards evan the pro
i have also left my sl750 in the canel for a YEAR
if i didint go out for a few days i would just put the nose against the sea wall and nail the gas,wind it up 1 time,done hop off ready for next week
and like pirate33 ,,i have never had a problem caused by salt water evan after the ski was sunk (tied down to dock during storm surge/hurricane)
and in my many years of working on outboards i cant say i have seen a "salt" caused problem ,only bolt removel problems due to salt
ok that my pennys worth

and then i posted pics when i got into the motor, it sat for 5 months over the summer w/ saltwater in the case, i would have bought it earlier to save it but it was a repo.
and btw, i plan to take very good care of the new motor i bought for it the picture was merely to make fun of that destroyed piston and crank, not blame my problems all on saltwater.....

There are re-manufacturer places like SBT, but not many forum members use or respect them. They are also real pricey, like 1300 for a motor w/ 2 year warranty. and that doesn't include shipping
Look on eBay too, i almost bought an engine off there, forum members post eBay finds in the "eBay Bin" its a sticky in the general discussion if i remember right.
good luck w/ whatever you decide to do. Just out of curiosity does your motor look like the one in the picture up there? I only ask because it think i may have the most saltwater demolished engine on this forum!!
