    I presume you have downloaded the 2001 Polaris Service manual, available from here.

    Give us some history on this machine.
    What has been done, what checks have you performed, etc.

    Two or three cylinders, carbs or fuel injected?

    What maximum RPM does the engine achieve in the water?

    Sounds like it may be running on only one cylinder.

    What is the compression in each cylinder?

    Do you have strong spark in both cylinders?

    Does one spark plug look wet, or different from the other?

    Were the carbs cleaned or serviced?

    Cracked head? Did it ingest water? Was the crank shaft checked for index? Any piston damage?

    5mph - what engine RPM?
