  • Why we do this, a thank you message

    I have been mostly offline here for the last week or so, just logged in this morning to find a 'thank you' message in my private messages inbox.

    The following is from a new member, with zero public posts. Sometimes we forget that in addition to the logged in and active Greenhulk user accounts, there are many other people who see these public forums and can act on the information they find here.

    Just wanted to tell you what an amazing wealth of knowledge you guys put out there and say thanks!

    Buddy gave me a xxxx SL750 that has sat in a field for 14 years. Holed #1. yy hours.

    Thanks predominately to you guys [it is now] running like new. I used (everything) in your posts. Everything! Runs like new.

    Working on the Ocean Pro plate and R&D grate right now to try to tame Flipper.

    You guys are amazing.

    While we often help each other within these forums, there is a ripple effect whereby we are also helping a larger audience.

    I want to take this moment to thank all the active members for contributing to these forums, especially the very active Polaris watercraft enthusiast community. The calibre of member posts and threads within the Polaris sections compares very well with the other brand centric forums.

    Thank you to everyone who contributes, and to those who have contributed in the past. Kudos

    Yes, thank you indeed! If it wasn't for this great Polaris community, I probably would have purchased a different machine. However, the knowledge in this community and K447's website make me feel confident that I can fix any issue that may arise in the near future. I did not have that confidence in other PWC communities!

      It's just how this forum is. Pay it forward if/when you can

        I would like to extend my thanks also. I joined a year ago and have logged onto this site almost everyday since. It has provided me with knowledge that i would not have received anywhere. Also, It has giving me the background to purchase my fleet at a substantial reduced price knowing that all the Polaris Group would assist. I believe I have even made a few friends and look forward to riding with some. I thank all of the Polaris Group for giving of your time to selflessly help us novices.

              I absolutely agree 100%! You guys are awesome! I recently joined too, and while I haven't posted much I have been reading these threads every chance I get. The volume of information and help is phenomenal!! I feel I have a much better understanding of how these skis work. I almost regret leaving my ski to be fixed by the local guy...I still don't have it back.... I think that after reading several of these posts, that I probably would have been able to get it "tuned up", and would have been able to ask questions if I ran into any difficulties.

              Once again, thank you all for your willingness to share your knowledge and help keep this fun skis visible on the water!!

                  I to have had a few PMs along this line with the msx four strokes. For many people, this is there only source for polaris info and help as many shops want nothing to do with a polaris watercraft. I get comments almost every time I go out about my MSX 150 and how old and the amazement that it still runs...

                  All thanks to the hulk!

                          2015 Watercraft Ride for Dad charity, request for donations

                          Each summer M447 and K447 participate and support the Watercraft Ride for Dad charity.
                          100% of the donations go to support men's prostate cancer research and education.

                          This is the only charity that I ask others to contribute to, and only for a short time each year.

                          The majority of watercraft enthusiasts are male and we are all susceptible to this.

                          If either of us have been able to help you in some way through these forums, I ask that you now consider making a donation.

                          Note: If you are in Canada you will receive a tax deductible donation receipt.
                          For those in USA or elsewhere outside Canada, even without the tax deduction, you can still donate.

                          Please click this link to support the ride;

                          Thank you for your donation,

                            2 weeks of awesome vacation and use of my 2001 polaris virage carb, all because of the support you all provide, and the generous maintenance of this website. Carb rebuilds, jet pump rebuild, and fuel sender replacement, fuel line replacement all learned here. Thank you!

                              Late comer to the party here but yes, thank you for all the technical information. I am fortunate enough to have the factory manuals for all 2000 Polaris PWC models which I have referred to many times, but the information here and at K447's site are outstanding for quick references and explaining things in easy to understand ways. Like many here have said, this is about the best we can get when working on our rides as most places won't touch them (but yet many of the places I've been to that said they won't touch a Polaris will be all over a Tigershark) and this forum is indeed the defacto Polaris PWC service division. case in point...the local Polaris dealer parts guy wasn't even aware Polaris made PWC's
