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
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.

Are you sure its DI that color looks just like my 2001 Carb model?

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