    Polaris SL900 Questions

    Hi,
    I'm looking at getting a 1996 SL 900 to either replace one of my Fuji SLs or flip it. The hull is mint and in good shape, but the motor is in boxes. Haven't seen it in person yet, only photos.

    I don't know anything about the domestics. Are they better than the Fujis? I think the hull is the same, correct? I know it has the extended pump.

    They only made the SL900 for two years, so are parts harder to find?

    Any updates to do like the Fujis? Does this model need the updated ignition system, or is that only the domestic twins?

    Guy is asking $500 CDN with trailer. Pretty good price imo.

    The 900's are great boats ,the domestics are much more reliable then the fuji's in my opinion .The hulls are the same and as far as parts the 900 parts are still out there and you can stick a 1050 or a 1200 motor in there as well and theres tons of those parts out there .

    Ok, I went to look at the SL900 today. Looks like only one piston siezed and he took apart the engine. Only problem he left everything out in winter so everything is rusty including the crank. The crank looked good, and all the bearings spun nicely. too bad it needs a new one now (not to bright on the guy's part). Cases were good, all the cylinders has surface rust on it. Impeller looked good.

    Now my question is that does anyone think this is worth it? Hull is in perfect shape. I checked ebay and didn't find any sl900 parts, but I can find tons of Fuji parts so I am a bit concerned about getting part for it.

    I offered $300, but he said no way, $500 firm! I think I need to walk away from this one.

    Any suggestions..

    Are the 900/1050 motors more rare than the Fuji motors? I can't find any 900 parts at all on ebay, only Fuji's.

    I only found one 1050 crank for $500usd.

    I am looking at a 1996 SL 900 that is for sale for $1500.00....
    The guy says the ski is in real good condition with just normal dock scuffs and such.

    Are there any issues that I should be concerned about with this ski?

    Or anything I should be looking for when I test ride it?

    And do you think $1500.00 is a good price, he won;t come down any at all

    Any help would be appreciated
