    1997 Polaris Pro 785 PWC goes 62.9mph on GPS

    Error on my part it has 69.5 hours on it, not 120 hours as i listed before. i was on the wrong screen on the dash display and since the bottom row of LCD screen doesnt work i didnt realize i was not on the hour meter screen, and i was on the voltage screen instead so the 120 i saw was 12.0 Volts not 120 hours!!!


    1997 Polaris PRO 785 PWC. i had it out on it on the last weekend in June on Lake Ontario for about a 25 mile ride, it ran 60.5mph on GPS with a full tank of fuel, and 62.9mph on GPS with about a 1/4 tank of fuel on the way back home. it has a 98 CDI box (better timing curves), 99 Fast-Trim motor, Handlebar bag,Hot Seat Performance 5-piece Billet Head with high 91 octane domes in it, V-Force Delta Reeds, Skat-Trak 8-vein Magnum stainless steel Stator Pump, Skat-Trak Swirl 13/18 degree stainless steel impeller re-pitched by Impros, Hot Seat Performance aggressive polished Ride Plate, Hot Seat Performance Waterbox, Beach House adjustable sponsons (black),UMI black angled Billet Finger Throttle, Renthal medium-compound Watercraft Grips (grey).comes with a karavan single place galvanized trailer. in nice shape. the ski has always run like a champ! a few of the "bars" in the guage LCD display are not working so some times some the the speed and RPM numbers arent complete, sometimes they all work sometimes they dont. unfortuantely these guage displays going out like this are quite a common problem on the late 90's polaris PWC's.. Also the left side rub rail came off and i lost it in the lake. It also comes with the factory outdoor heavy duty cover and i also have the lightweight "dust cover" for when its inside. this ski has never been stored outside or in the water. i also have the stock pump and stock impeller and stock head that will go with the machine. it has 69.5 hours on it, if it ever stops raining i will put some more hours on it! The only reason I am selling it is because i bought a boat that i can take my family on and i really dont want the Pro 785 taking up room in my garage if its hardly getting used. Resonable offers will be considered, lowball offers wont, so please dont waste my/your time with lowball offers...... located in Rochester NY. $3100

    I'm not looking for a fight, but $3100 for a 63 mph pro is too much. Good luck though, if you get it I have a 2000 I'll sell also.

    Thats a realy rare ski. Iv personaly never seen one in person $3100 for somthing you dont see everyday is a fair price. And besides the ski is yours you can sell it for what ever you want.
