    check the carbs and see if there's any corrosion on them.....also check the nozzle trim....should be nice and smooth...they tend to get sticky with time..

    Welcome to the forum !

    as mentioned above, bring a compression guage and do a compression check. Start it and let it run a on a flush also to listen to it. A test ride would be good also. The 2000 models were very strong hull-wise. If you start it, after it has stopped, with the seat off, see if you can hear the powervalve motor cycle. This happens immediately ate the engine stops. The powervalve motor located in the hul just under the glove box has two cables that operate exhaust valves via cables for all three cylinders. The cables run all the way to clinder number three.
    As the owner, if he was the original owner, ask and inquire about the Catalytic convertor. They have been known to break apart in the exhaust. The replacement for the Cat-Con's are a D-Plate.
    Also, look in the hull for oil, excessive oil. with a ski of that age, the oil lines have been known to come off and engine failure can occur.
    Look under the hull and all around the ski for any signs of damage. Parts are very easy to come by for it. Please take the time to download a service manual for that ski. It is a very handy tool. You can find lots of information in the HOW-TO/FAQ Yamaha Two Stroke section of the forum. Also take advantage of the Advanced SEARCH feature the forum has. Its very handy.

    Again, welcome
