Need your help
My boss said if I can get his Polaris SL650 running I can have his Kawasaki 650SX standup for free. I just sold my GP800 last week and would like to pull this off.
I have no idea what year it is, maybe a 1996? So far I know this about the ski:
- bat is probably dead or dying. It was connected to a charger when I got there.
- He said it would fire on starting fluid, but no gas is getting to carbs.
- Of the four hoses come out of the tank, 2 were clogged, all were brittle.
I am looking for a carb rebuild kit, new mats, seat cover, and a handlebar pad.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. My previous ski was a Yamaha, and I have only worked on Sea Doos and Yamis, so the Polaris is completely new to me.
Here are some pics of it:

Looks just like my 94. What's the HIN number?
Replace all the hoses including the ones inside the gas tank. ($25)
Replace the fuel pump with a triple outlet pump from John Zigler ($26)
Carb rebuild kits I get from Ebay usually. Mikuni Super BN 38mm x 3 kits around $100
New mats can be had from Hydroturf. Mention you're a GH meber and get 10% off.
Seat cover can be had from Hydroturf, Ebay usually, or buy some marine vinyl from JoAnn Fabrics (or someplace similar near you) and do it cheaply.
Handlebar pad try Ebay, John Zigler, Never Satisfied Motorsports, Beach Blonde, or search the classifieds on here to find someone parting out a ski with no MFD in the pad.

I'll have to see how it runs once I get it running and go from there. I figure I'll sink between $200 and $300 to get it right.
I am assuming I will pay for the parts.
