    Pro1200 Back in Action : ) PICS [email protected]@K

    Well if anyone knew, i just purchased one of the cleanest pro1200's i have ever seen. Never been in salt water and is mint. I purchased it 2 weeks ago. Well fast forward 3 weeks. Im on the water, with a friend (thank god) before a small storm and we were just heading in. 3-5 foot waves. Im going along then, bam ! No thrust. Killed the engine and was towed back to the dock and brought it home. The drive shaft and coupler went. The coupler from the dealer was not greesed. Nada, bone dry. (shouldnt they have gone throught it before they just went "here ya go its all set" )

    Brought it over at Sharps Marine, dropped if off monday, picked it up thursday. All done, i was a bit shocked at the price though (but it was done right all with OEM parts). $550.00 dollars ! The coupler from polaris was 220.00 and shaft was about 170.00 + 2hrs labor. He did clean up the edges of my prop and went over everything insuring everything was greesed. Well its back and here she is : ) Tell me what you think.

    Some mods have beed done, R+D Grate and all those warning stickers gone, painted on registration and possible a freestyle cone, att, or reeds very soon : )

    Now that's a purty boat!!
    I've been forced to cut them off like that as well, not very often but once in awhile a guy goes a little crazy with the red lock-tite.
    If I'm not mistaken somebody here has broken a piston or rings or something of that sort trying to break a coupler loose.
    The 220 on the part does hurt but he doesn't set retail, Polaris does that.
    Although I don't believe I've spent more than 60 bucks for any of mine (e-bay/member shopper right here)...shop for a spare while you're not in a hurry or maybe convert to the newer larger cheaper rubber buffered unit.
