Polaris SLT 750 Needs a Tune Up

If there is nothing wrong with it and it doesnt hesitate, stall or has some unusual symtom the only thing that can be done on a tune up is putting in some fresh spark plugs.
I dont not know of a place in Miami.........................

I'll get out my video camera today and film it starting up. There is this sound of like loose metal flying around inside of the engine. It is probably something that is loose and will just need to be tightened, but I know nothing about PWC's.
It also needs an oil change, and I don't even know how to do it on a car let alone a PWC. (I work on computers not engines , but I wouldn't mind learning how to work on a PWC)
The carburetor most likely needs a cleaning too (I doubt it is cause of the carb. but there is tons of smoke when it starts), but like I said my knowledge is very limited and I will most likely be taking matt up on his offer.

Oh brother, my brother. You go into a dealer talking like that and they will eat you alive and bill you for the pleasure. That's like going to a computer store and saying the things not fast enough.
1st No oil to change, its a 2 stroke
video tape the engine running and post, try to isolate the sound. If it is out of water, it is most likely the pump area making a little noise (common)
Pull the spark plugs and see if you see anything on the tips that is not brown (shiney, greasy, etc.)
carbs: Send to someone who is recommended. Do a search on the forum for "carb rebuild"
