    SeaDoo RX 2001 Opinions?

    What do you guys think about a 2001 SeaDoo RX??
    It looks like the first model with DI (direct fuel injection).
    The price seems OK, $4500 with double trailer??
    I"ve been ready to get an RXT, but this is almost 8K less.

    I had the exact boat back in 2001. Except mine was the carb model.
    I liked it alot. I actually miss it.

    Price is fair with that double trailer I think.

    is 70MPH realistic for a 2001??? Dont think so.... Otherwise why not. BTW if you're looking used, I'm willing to bet you can find a used RXT for lots less than $12500...

    yeah, that 70mph is not real, probably lot closer to 60mph which is
    what my '98 GST 951cc does (bored out by the way).

    New RXT is about $10,500 to $11,500 pre tax. Double trailer another
    $1400+

    It seems that market price for '04/'05 RXT is about $8K to 9.5K sans trailer.
    At that point you would go new and get all warranties, new ski rush, etc.

    This 2001 may or may not have DI, could be carbs. I was just wondering
    if there were any known issues with first year DI models?? This ski is
    about same size as my current one, 1/2 seater, 9'. I've been leaning heavily towards the bigger RXT since I run in the ocean off Ft. Lauderdale and the Keys a lot.

    My 2001 RX (carb) ran 63.6 on GPS.

    The RXT is a really nice platform. I'm considering one of those myself

    2000 was first year for di. Lots of trouble.

    I had an 01 di. I put 130 hrs on it . Loved it.

    Handles a lot better than an RXP.

    Got the same speed as RX951 in winter time.

    In 2001, you could get a carb or DI model.
    Same color hull and graphics.
