    Waiting for parts sucks!

    Been trying like hell to have a ski done by labor day weekend, and we keep having bad luck with parts.

    I've had two problems with Babbitts in the month. They first sent my parts to some other guy in Colorado. Then on the second order, they sent everything correct, but the driveshaft bearing carrier they sent was assembled by a 10 year old and was all screwed up. Now they dont know when they can ship another one.

    Unfortunately Atlantic didnt have our electrical update kit in stock and has yet to recieve it. Was hoping to have it this week to send the CDI off to Randy for programming as soon as he returns.

    Seemed like everything was going so smooth and though we were gonna make it, but now dont know

    Yes.............nervously awaiting Randy's return

    I have a feeling that once I get in touch with him, we'll be back in buisness, and on schedule.

    Hence why the polaris didnt go in the water this season..Dont get me wrong, it was a labor of love putting it together, but everytime it breaks, which seems more than often im always waiting on parts Might be parting out this winter to pay for the sxr-800.

    +1 on that.

    Twice my ski has failed out on the water, and twice it's been fixed before 9:00 PM that same night.

    I wish I had the money for one spare.


    Not getting any better for me either. Got to work and bid on a bearing carrier. 10 minutes left before auction closed and the alarm went off and I had to leave. Got back, was outbid by $1
