    2003 Polaris MSX 140..Worth getting?

    I have located a 2003 Polaris MSX 140 that is in good running shape, but the body supposedly shows wear from sitting outside all of its life...Im not too sure if its oxidation or gelcoat damage(guy doesnt have any pictures)....I would be getting it for around 1k and it comes with a few extras...Are these OK skis? Im really not too familiar with them..just seems like its a pretty good deal for a running ski. Clean title too....

    I appreciate any information you can give me..or pros and cons.

    For around 1k..i would consider it. Just make sure it runs well, if Im not mistaken the MSXs were 4 strokes. Also keep in mind that Polaris doens't make watercrafts so parts and repair might be tough. I would not be too concerned about oixidation, that can be cleaned up. Just my .02 cents

    Yea it does need a small repair but he has all parts bought..its just a seal in the driveshaft area..said it leaks some water.

    Also from information I have found on them..it appears they are 1200cc 2 Strokes...140 HP...This right?

    1200 cc two stroke...i would go for it...def check the compression..etc. Like willycrumb said, if it is the four stroke...id make sure it runs well and id think twice.

    Ya I have had a few of them..I mainly buy them for parts. Was just curious what this ski would be worth in parts or whole.

    Thanks for the advice so far guys

    If you don't buy it pass it along to some of the GH Polaris junkies. I'm sure somebody over there would snatch it up.

    As far as I remember the 1200cc Polaris was a relatively reliable motor. I wouldn't be horrified and would prolly go for it myself. You'll be able to find parts for a while yet.

    I'm gonna own my pro till it rots out from underneath me but thats just me.
