    Need Buying Advice

    This is my first and badly need advice. I've been reading the forums for several hours but can't decide. The three skis are 1998 Kawi STX 900 $2200, 1997 Kawi STX 1100 $1800 both which look good and the owners will give trial rides on the lake. Also a 1998 Polaris SLTH $1000 700cc 95 hp that the owner says has beed modified to about 110 hp and says he just had the carbs rebuilt, ported & polished. The top speed is suppossed to be between 50 and 55. He will even throw a couple of life jackets. I wanted stable 3 seater to cruise the river and take to Panama City Beach sometimes. Sort of favoring the Polaris since its cheaper. Would enjoy working on them as long as parts are available. Any recomendations? Reliabilty? Easy to repair?

    The links in my signature are also useful

    A modified engine means you will be more on your own when it comes to tuning and problem diagnostics. Not completely alone, but things will be different enough from stock that you will need to know what is what on your particular machine.
