WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN BUYING A JET SKI PERSONAL WATERCRAFT ► Our Website: http://mechaniclifestyle.com Hey guys, in this video we will cover some major things to check out when buying a used jet ski / personal watercraft. Jet skis are usually divided in two categories: 2 STROKE and 4 STROKE. There are advantages and disadvantages for both but I personally prefer 4 stroke. Always make sure you take it on water before you buy the jet ski / personal watercraft. ► 2ND Channel Subscribe: http://bit.ly/2a86p9Z ► Honest Product Review Channel: http://bit.ly/2ygqUcy ► 2013 GT86 Project Playlist: http://bit.ly/2dz4xY1 ► Ford Fiesta ST BUILD http://bit.ly/2a59UKp ► BMW E46 ZHP PROJECT http://bit.ly/2g8tOa9 ♦♦♦ Cameras & Gear Used For This Video ♦♦♦ •Cameras Panasonic Lumix FZ300 http://amzn.to/2BNWtNA •Tripod Polaroid 72-inch http://amzn.to/2iVTmP4 •Microphone Polaroid Pro Video Condenser http://amzn.to/2krpSsA •Light NEEWER 160 LED CN-160 Dimmable http://amzn.to/2jjg9Bd •Comuter for editting Lenovo ideapad 310 http://amzn.to/2kqUNFl ♦♦♦ Other Equipment and Gear that I use ♦♦♦ •Camera Sony HD Video Recording HDRCX405 http://amzn.to/2jk8nqB •GoPro HERO5 Black http://amzn.to/2ktNKfj •Extra Computer For Editting Lenovo Ideapad 510 http://amzn.to/2ktOuB7 ►Social Media Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/worldmechanics/ FACEBOOK PAGE: https://www.facebook.com/worldmechanicsofficialpage AMAZON ASSOCIATES DISCLOSURE World Mechanics is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com *Disclaimer We, World Mechanics, are not responsible for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video.

Rule #1 is do your research!!!! Buy what you like but do the research to see what faults it may have or how reliable it is I bought a 200$ 1989 Seadoo SP its great its one of the most reliable Seadoos made!! 55HP of pure awesomenessssssss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Haha Id be lucky to do 40mph but I'm also 6'4" and 250lbs! but its still too much fun for a very low operating cost

Saber Tooth Lawn Tigers 55 horse power of awesomeness. How fast is it
John Reece (8 months ago)
How heavy are they, debating whether I should try to tow one with my small car or not
Saber Tooth Lawn Tigers (8 months ago)
The older 2 stroke ones are light and the newer 4 stroke ones can be upwards of 900lbs still probably towable by most small cars though

Step one, dont buy Polaris
Mark G (6 months ago)
The 4 stroke ones can be reliable, my friend has over 300 hours on his.

you get it

First step of buying a used jetski. 1. Dont buy a 2 stroke unless you are into standup skis. 2. Don't buy a brand that no longer exists, theres a reason they arent around anymore.... 3. Just avoid 90s built sit down skis all together. 4. Hours arent everything, rental yamaha VX 4 strokes (most popular rental model in the world) get upto well over 1000 hours on original skis. A low hour ski jetski that is old....is still old, think of it like the 40 year old virgin. 5. Dont buy a 2 stroke, seriously. Unless you like wrenching on your motor more then you ride it . 6. Compression test it, a compression test kit costs like $25. And can tell you alot about the health of a motor. Above all buy one that has a very well documented history, sub 50 hour skis that werent cared for will blow up alot quicker then one with 100s of hours that was well maintained. 7. Always water test, always.water.test

Nothing wrong with sit down 2 strokes. Just recently bought a 1996 Seadoo HX 717cc Rotax and gave it a quick fix and now runs perfect

Saber Tooth Lawn Tigers don’t kid yourself

Compression test, inspect the impeller and water test. 4 stroke a aren't a golden ticket to worry free use and will be even more expensive to repair. They keep making them more expensive and complicated the newer they get. 4 strokes are jam packed in the hull and a lot of the labor cost is just getting ti a part to replace it.

I bought a used 2 stroke 4 years ago and haven't had a problem.
Saber Tooth Lawn Tigers (8 months ago)
I would rather my light (325lbs) 2 stroke 1989 Seadoo SP over the massive and ugly 4 stroke whales they make now days!!

I hope you don't buy that jetski because the 780 the parts are very scarce and the reason I know that because I use to specialized in Polaris engine parts I salvage them for a living for years and those blue motors are a nightmare. Also the 1st thing you need to do is make sure it has an aftermarket fuel pump because the stock blue fuel pump on the ski does not feed enough fuel into a 3rd cylinder therefore your 3rd cylinder always runs Very lean I just hope you done a compression test Especially checking the 3rd Cylinder
Bennett Wilke (6 months ago)
FLORIDA LIFE CLIPS since you specialize in these moters could you help me with mine? A lot of the time I can’t get mine over 3900 rpm and it drinks gas and oil. We suspected the gas pump but it’s never been moved so we can’t loosen the pump. Do you have any suggestions?

the slt 780's are very nice and durable
Elio Camey (1 year ago)
excellent video, thanks for sharing tips and good luck on the next one you buy!
Paul Tran (1 year ago)
I wonder what year that jetski was made?
sean mclean (6 months ago)
95-96

pfft should have bought a sea doo. lol jk my mom has one just like that one and it's about as good as my seadoo
catfisher420 (1 year ago)
First thing to NOT look for when buying a jet ski is, Polaris, sea-doo or tiger shark. Only buy Kawasaki, Yamaha or Honda, they are the most reliable.
sean mclean (6 months ago)
no, its because they look cool. would you want to ride a 22 year old jet ski, cause there faster than most yamaha's
sean mclean (6 months ago)
its not right, polaris has been the longest lasting brand out there exept maybe kawasaki
sean mclean (6 months ago)
i have rolled my polaris over 20 times, its never taken on any water
Fred Head (6 months ago)
650 hours on my Seadoo. No issues. Brand whores LOL
sean mclean (6 months ago)
polaris is the best in my opinion because mine is 22 years old and i havent had to replace anything on it. but tiger shark and sea-doo suck
