    Got the same model for free from someone who had it almost 15 years in his garden without use. After replacing the battery, direction cables and plugs it runs smooth and nice.

    Yeah it needs about 800 dollars worth of stuff. $10.00 later, runs great. How much you wanna bet the owner before took it to the dealer and they told him that.

    Glad you got it nice and hot and a good run after the water episode previous. The amount of water you drained at the end was not bad, I had a ski the same and it was never completely dry. And, damn thats a cheap ski, over here in NZ that in the condition it is now as it sits would sell for at least $4000 maybe more.

    You're way ahead of me ,Bro ! I hate anything that runs erratic (sign waves).Just not harmonious with the flow of nature. Nails on chalkboard. Makes me clinch my teeth and grimace .

    Why not just pull the header, more room to work, and more exposed bolt to work with???

    You might get a manual on line that you can print off.

    I had the exact same model and year. I got it with a lake house. It had a broken bolt on the header and the carb was all gummed up. I ran but would bottom out with high RPMs. I sold it to a coast guard mechanic for 1K without a trailer and I am sure it got it running smooth.

    Just a note, never want to run it that long without water hooked up. But sounds good I have a 96 Polaris slt 780.

    The key to the Rotax engine's is to let them warm up for 10 minutes before you drive them so you don't foul the plugs.

    You're a bad influence. I watched the first videa and immediately ran to Cragslist to find me a seadoo with an easy fix. Found a few to check out. My wife is going to hate you. Kids will love you, but wife is going to hate another project around. Thanks

    Maybe one bolt broke before and the guy broke the second one made the leak worse.

    I own two 2001 Seadoo Bombardiers. I bought them 5 years ago and they only had 60 hrs on them, but I paid a lot more for the two. They came with a nice tandem trailer as well. One is a RFI and the other carberated. My carberated 1000cc runs 66mph. Both still running good. I'd replace the wear ring with a nylon one instead of rubber.

    It sounds like that starter is going or maybe that’s just audio distortion but it sounds like the splines don’t go out

    Idle RPM should be 3000 dry and it will be about 1500 when it is in the water.
