Found a '95 700 Waveraider and was wondering if there is anything in particular I should know about it as far as mechanical issues to watch out for?

I've been around boats all my life but never owned a PWC. Obviously, this one is 15 years old, and it has some sun fading, but i did hear it run for a few seconds and the seller is more than willing to let me run it on the water this weekend. Assuming it is in good mechanical condition, what would it be worth?

I just bought a '94 Waveraider with a trailer for $800. I had to put a battery in from O'Rielly Auto Parts as Walmart doesn't carry the battery that fits.
This too is also my first jetski after been a boater for years.
I really like this thing, very quick and fast. Need to be careful at low speeds as it it top heavy especially with two people and has a tendency to roll over. Will turn on a dime.
I converted from oil injection to pre-mix as it smoked excessivly which is common for these 2 strokes, oil injection cuts down on that immensly. I use a 50:1 ratio. Hope it works out for you.
