    Vibration at idle on 2000 Genesis

    Is it normal to have a vibration on idle on this ski? It has the 3 cylinder 1200 triple carb. As soon as you give a little gas, it goes away. Idling about 1600 or so.

    Pretty normal. Make sure the thru hull fitting is lubricated. Some grease on the driveshaft splines helps a little with the rattle as well.

    Be sure to keep the through-hull bearing on the drive shaft properly greased with waterproof grease.

    Download the 2002 Service manual, if you have not yet done so.

    Your through-hull bearing should look like one of these. The early model years used a needle type grease injection fitting, later years used the more common Zerk fitting (top in photo).

    Perhaps your through-hull bearing has been rotated, and the grease fitting is facing downwards.

    Use good quality Marine grade waterproof bearing grease.
    I use Amsoil Synthetic Water Resistant GWR Grease #2

    Not a big thing, but that rubber air intake fitting should be aimed downwards.

    That way, if the ski is inverted and takes on some water, it will reduce the chances of that water getting into the engine air intake.

    Do you have a vented battery? I don't see the clear battery vent tube that normally connects to the battery nipple.

    The Moron polaris Dealer Liquid Gasketed the F***ing Lid to the base the base to the carbs and cemeted the Rubber Snorkle (Intake fitting)

    Yeah sorry tahts not aimed at anyone but Having to remember the Fool can switch me from calm to totally pissed like a light switch

    heres a Tip STAY AWAY from Waynes Polaris World in Bancroft hes a flat out crook.. Im gunna lay him out July First weekend when I go to the cottage after all the stuff I found out he did to the previous owner, like $1200 bux for a PTO piston replacement, $490 for the Filler neck/cap replacement, $470 for the rear handle replacement.. to boot its not like we crooked him on the price for his work but a single cyl replacement for $1200 and he didn't have the decency to replace the battered PTO head cap x.x

    Crap from what I read for $700-900 I could of had a FULLY REBUILT dropped in x.x

    Thats the reason I got it they though THAT was the going rate for the repairs they said they couldn;t afford it so i bought it in a DEAD state as in "No Start"
    hrmm for $490 they didn't even drain the fuel and 3/4 gallon of water at the base of the fuel tank x.x when it went in for the Filler neck/cap replacement after a dock mishap

    ok I've vented and sorry for the thread hyjack its hurtful what somone could do to somone when there inexperianced (ie mechanic going over the top to hose somone)
