    2004 Msx 110

    Looking to buy a used Polaris Watercraft, but they seem to be very hard to find. I saw an ad for a 2004 MSX 110 and I just wanted some advise before I call the dealer. Is this an okay watercraft and what problems should I look for or know of. Thanks, I am glad I found this site.

    Welcome to the Hulk.

    Do some searches on the Polaris forums. There are some other MSX 110 and MSX 150 owners on here.

    Those are the only 4 -stroke, Weber engined PWC Polaris made, and only for 2004 model year. Polaris does use the same turbocharged motor in some of their snowmobiles, and the German made Weber motor is also used in other products. Parts are available.

    One important issue is oil levels. Apparently the factory markings on the dipstick are too high. Filling to the max line when cold is actually overfilled.

    Excess oil ends up in the intake tract during operation, where it fouls the inter-cooler and sensors, and results in performance problems.

    Overall, the MSX 110 & MSX 150 seem to be reliable, as long as good fuel is used, oil levels are correct, and the maintenance has been well done.

    Hi fusion, WELCOME to the Green Hulk Forums!!
    I think the 110 in yellow looks pretty cool, let us know if you need anything else.

    It is yellow and it has about 85 hours on it and they want $4200 with no trailer. He is emailing me photos. Do they have good power, are they reliable and what would the top speed be. Have read on a few other forums to stay away from the 110 but all products have some issues.

    I just recently bought an 04 Polaris MSX 150 with 25.1 hrs on it. Took it out on the lake today and reached 67 mph by factory speedo. That translates roughly into 61-65 actual MPH. It seems to run well, very smooth and has good acceleration when the turbo spools up. Love it so far!!

    I think 4200 is too much but the 110 has no more problems than the 150's. You can always upgrade and get a kit from Jay at Atlantic which gives you the 150.
    As far as problems or reliability issues Weber now has parts and dealers popping up all over the United states and you have guys like Jay that have been working on them since they hit the market.
    Remember also, a lot of sites are unfamiliar with the Weber power plant and simply lack the knowledge to make a competent repair. How many of them have actually attended a class or even looked at a factory tech service manual?
    Be sure to take your unit for a thorough test drive, check compression and max RPM's along with top speed numbers. These basic checks will give you a basic idea of the engine/pump condition.
    Check with Polaris and make sure the unit has been serviced (including valve adjustments).
    Good Luck and let us know what you do.

    It sold

    I took too long making a decision. Can any of you help me locate a late model Polaris 3 seater in the Northern States. I am from Saskatchewan, Canada. I think I really want a msx 110 but would be interested in other Polaris models. Thanks again for your help.

    I don't know Canada too well, Eastern or Western side? Jay has a lot of 110/150 boats, projects and the such, he's in New Jersey.

    Right in the middle!

    Maybe 400 miles north of the border, about 1,000+ miles north west of Michigan. Northern mid-west states would be the closest to Sask.
