View Full Version : 1996SL700 Polaris Jet ski taking on excess water

09-24-2007, 09:04 PM
"<font color=""0000ff"">First off I dont really know if this forum deals with jet skiis. However, I recently bought two 1996 SL700 Polaris jet skiis from a co-worker. The first 5 or 6 times I used them I had no problems. Now one of them seems to be taking on excess water in the engine compartment. After removing them from the lake they usually drain water, via the drain plug, for about a minute. This one in particular now takes about 5&#43; minutes to completely drain. Also it is unuseable because after about 15-20 minutes of riding, the rear end sinks into the water when I accelerate. I am sure this is due to the excess water building up inside.

Does anyone have any idea what could be the problem or where I should start in trying to repair the issue? Thanks in advance for any help provided</font>"

look at all the exhaust hoses
might be the driveshaft seal
best way is dip them on the trailer and look at the engine compartment to find where the water is coming from
