    Tied to dock

    I have a 1994 Polaris sl750 and i would like to know how long can i keep the engine running when it is tied to the dock. Will it harm the ski if it is tied down and not moving. Thanks

    Are you talking about just a few minutes, or many minutes?

    If you let it idle for too long, it tends to accumulate oil in the engine, and the spark plugs may start to foul.

    If you are doing some testing, and rev the motor up every so often, then it will be just fine.

    Thanks everyone. Is there a certain rpm i should keep it below. It is just for testing purposes.

    You can try to move the dock at wot if you have it secured well enough.
