how many hours before rebuild on 2 stroke
Thinking of getting a used 2003 xp di. How many hours would these engines normally run before a rebuild is needed ? What would be considered a lot of hours on one of these machines ?

Anywhere from 50 to 500 could need a rebuild. Every ski is different, and how it was maintained matters greatly.

It all depends on the rider. If a person owned it and ragged the crap out of it, never flushed it and let it sit all winter with no storage oil in it then 20 hours could be a lot.
What I do is pay attention to the person selling the craft and ask questions like who winterized the ski or did the up keep on it. If they say something like "Man I have never had to touch it, its always just started everytime" then you know it never got winterized. Therfore its prob gonna blow up on ya

All depends on the riders and person doing the maintenance. My ski is a 95 XP with probably 300 + hours and it still has perfect compression and no issues. I just maintain it and store is properly

I have a freind who used to race the 951 skis. He says to do a preventative top end at 150 hrs. My GTXL shattered a piston at 160 hrs. That was much more expensive than a top end.
