View Full Version : FS:Non Running jet ski and trailer

04-28-2008, 02:22 PM
i have a 99 polaris 1050slx. it pretty much needs a new motor. you could rebuiold the one it has but would probably be easier/cheaper to buy a new one. other than that it seems fine, though i cant guarantee it. i havea few parts laying around. it also has a single jet ski trailer that i would sell separate if anyone wants just the trailer. would like 500 for both or 250 for either one. can provide pics upon interest.

if you were closer to western nc, would go look at it. can always use another jetski

Pix plz!

I talked to him and he is going to get pics up. You can find alot of info on the model with a simple google search ;)

I live in northern Wisconsin and considering driving to pick it up. So it's hard to believe for the price that Western NC is too far :D lmao

You shouldn't have a problem getting $250 for the ski. The trailer though, $175 tops. Trailers are every where, and a brand new one can be found for about $350-$400.

Here's a 1998 SLX, same as the 1999 model.


It's a 3 cylinder 2 stoke.

A motor will cost $945 from SBT Performance, plus a $200 frieght charge that you get back after sending in your old engine.

I have rebuilt a couple of engines that came from SBT, they truely ****. Rebuild em your self at a local shop. support the local guys and get a better quality at a few bucks more ;)

I have never had a problem with SBT. They also have a 1 year full warranty.

What kind of motors have you gotten from them, and what exactly was the problem?

one seadoo 580 and 2 seadoo 650 engines. on both 650's the cranks where so far out of balance i cannot understand how they ran. I took pics of the last engine I worked on. There was a lot that I fixed that could have been done by SBT. the cylinder walls should not have been shipped they way they where and I found a bolt in the crank case. don't remember what else until I find the pics again.

I live just down the road in jacksonville, but I know nothing about jet ski's..and yes I've lived here my whole life, kinda sad I know. My question is, what would the jet ski be worth once fixed in this area? I've never owned one and I'm not too sure I would enjoy one or have the time to ride it. But if it was worth it to fix it, even if the cost is a grand I might be interested in working something out to help get it out of your way.

05-09-2008, 06:51 PM
yeah sorry to hear youre from here
the area isnt toooo horribly bad i guess, ive been toworse places, just all the same stuff

anyway you probably wouldnt get much more tan your money back on it once you fixed it up. maybe a few hundred on top, but only if you did the owrk yourself. i would have to imagine that if you like going to the beach adn like being in the water you would like jet skiing. my family had two pretty much from the time i was 12 til just a couple years ago and i could spend all day out on the water on them. to me theres not a lot thats more fun that jumping waves and doing 180's in the water and cruising across teh water at 60+
but thats me. if you want to look at it, the ski is actually located out towards richlands, off 111. im goign on vacation though here soon so anything after tues would have to wait til end of this month. only two thingsi know of for sure that need to be replaced are the motor and carbs. carbs can be had for 200 or less and a motor for about 8-900 and you have to send in teh core motor. other than that, drain the fuel/oil, replace the other stuff wit the parts i already ahve and you should be good to go.

Alright, thanks for the information..let me talk to some guys I know that could probably fix it for me and I'll get back to you about it.

05-11-2008, 11:39 PM
sounds good

05-26-2008, 01:47 AM
back from vacation
lets get this thing sold
will accept offers, also willing to part with just the trailer if anyone needs a trailer
