    New Polaris owner

    I just wanted to make a post saying hi and showing my skis I just picked up. One is a 99 SLX and the other is an 02 Octane. I was more interested in the getting the octane but couldn't pass up the package. Picked them up with trailer for 3k. But the octane does need an engine as it is locked. Anyways just wanted to say hi.

    Welcome to the Hulk!

    Octane - wow, you will have envious friends around here.

    Update your Profile with your location, etc.

    Sounds like you are familiar with Polaris skis.

    Some Polaris Service Manuals can be found here.

    Thanks everyone for the welcomes. Nice signature Rock_Road. lol. Can't wait to get the octane running. Until then the SLX will have to do. But I have a friend with an octane that I have been riding when I go out.

    holy crap, great deal. Octane alone is worht 4K + Even if you have to strip and rebuild, thats only $500. I would bet it something easy though. Before you do anything, pull the pump and make sure the engine is really locked.. Last 2 stand ups I bought had ocks in teh impeller. Fired right up after pulling the pump

    Already know it's the engine as popped the heads off when looking at the skis. Yeah I know it was a decent deal. The guy wanted 5k but he thought they both ran. Always find things when least expect it, I found them on a craigs list city I never go on. So I would say I lucked out. And I've heard the slx is a fun ski but never ridden one.

    Hopefully I get to ride them this summer besides weekends. I like to go out on the week nights when less people are out. I'm already out of town for the next few weeks for work with the possibility of being gone all summer. Thanks again for all the welcomes.
