    New to PWC, a few questions

    I just picked up my first PWC, a new to me 95 SL750. I've been going through the service manual so I can replace/inspect/clean everything I need to.

    A few quick questions:

    1) Are there any web sites that offer stock polaris parts at a discount?
    2) Is Green Grease ok to use for everything that calls for grease?

    I'm sure I'll have more questions, thanks in advance!!

    -Brian

    welcome to greenhulk!!!!!!!

    my second ski was a 95 sl750 great ski to have!!!

    as for vendors there's partsland.com and there are a few forum members here such as john zigler and watcon that i highly recommend. also dont forget the polaris classified section.

    as for the grease, what's the green grease made for? if it were me i would go out and get some new grease that i know is good

    im sure there will be others here to chime in, there's a ton of polaris guru's here!!

    Thanks!

    It's a fully synthetic grease I've used on trucks for years. It says it's for cars/trucks/rvs and boats.

    Welcome to the Hulk!

    I don't know about the Marine qualities of Green Grease, but the web site is annoying! Loud, and too many testimonials for my liking.

    You want to use a WATERPROOF marine bearing grease. Waterproof means it resists washout in the presence of water, and meets or exceeds standardized tests for grease washout.

    Green Grease does say it resists washout, so I suppose it will be OK for use in your Polaris bearings.

    I use the Amsoil synthetic Marine Grease (GWR type, I think).

    There are a number of sources for parts, some have discounted prices, others have faster shipping, and then there are the guys who actually support this forum, and their customers, with advice and information;
    Jay - www.atlanticpowersports.com
    Randy - www.watcon.com

    There are others too - do some searching and reading on here, you'll find them.

    Thanks!!! Yes, I'd rather deal with someone who knows their stuff and supports the board

    One more question. I need to do a cyl compression test. I have the carbs/intake off right now. Can I do the test without them on? Thanks!

    I believe your compression numbers will be lower without the reeds installed.
