    Talking How I got my 2007 Ultra for $1000

    I figured this deserved itz own thread.. I just want to see how ppl react to the inside skinny of what happens when u take ur ski into the dealership for service.
    Soooo anyway the SC was seized.. had salt residue in it and the dealership thought it was bad so they sold the customer a new ski. It only has 40 hrs on it!!! I have a deal worked out with my local d-ship and I buy all their stuff they either can't diagnose or stuff they take on trade. They were beggin me to come and work for them as they dont have any pwc techs.. at least decent ones.. But I own an HVAC/R company and they couldn't pay me near enuf to have me work there.
    Usually what they do if they cant diagnose something is quote a SUPER HIGH estimate and then usually the customer simply forfeits their ski,bike,quad for the diagnostic fee..
    SH!T last year they GAVE as in FREE, an 03' Avon Zodiac RIB inflatable! I turned around and sold it for $9000!!!

    Little story: They told me their "tech" took a customers ski out after doin the 10 hour service/oil change on an almost brand new unit and he 4got to tighten up a line and SUNK THE SKI!!
    Another one! They couldn't pull the jet pump off another ski, (splines into the pump were a little rusty) sooooo they hooked the FORKLIFT up to it and ripped the bearing pillar and damn near ripped the entire d-shaft tunnel completely out of the belly of the ski.
    And another: Bike tech takes a customers bike out on the road and dumps it, breaks his leg and totals the machine...

    BTW my 07 ultra250x ran when I got it but the SC had salt residue on the side walls keeping the rotors locked in place. I removed the SC tore it down and soaked it for a few days and VIOLA it lived!

    Not knocking you but the "stealership" that you are buying the skis and what not from are crooks. I would not be proud of "helping them out" even if i didn't aid in the deed.

    dude props, Ive been looking for something like that, to everyone who thinks this is wrong, most of the skis that get turned in like that are done so on insurance and if not they are old or degenerate, there are a few gems in the rough but most of them are trashed or blown up skis that arent worth fixing anyways.

    thats a great deal i wish i had found it first
