    Buying a used seadoo questions

    I'm getting ready to buy a seadoo. I found a 2006 RXT with 20 hours on craigslist and am going to check it out on Friday. I plan on taking for a test ride. Anything in particular I should be trying on the ride to test it out? Any specific questions I should ask or things I should look at on this model?

    Thanks. TNT

    Welcome to the forum; I have two '06 RXTs. Great bikes. You will enjoy them.

    I'm assuming the 10 hr. inspection/service was done or you'd be getting a code.

    Next, ask if the washer were changed on the SC. If they weren't, that is the first thing you will need to do. Check the link near the top left of most any page on this site titled "Supercharger Info". Def. change the washers... You'll prob. also want to read the thread on how to change your own oil. Doing it yourself will put coin in your pocket after 1 service.

    Finally, be patient - about 1/2 a dozen GH members will chime in with some real tips and pointers. Good luck w/your ride.

    Take a good flashlight with you. I mean a good one. Crawl up under, use said flashlight, and take a peek at the prop and wear ring. Remove the seat, and using the flashlight again, take a good solid look in the engine compartment. Check for leaks. Bilge should be clean.

    I just picked up a 05 RXT 2 weeks ago in Michigan, and paid $5800.00 for it, and it is CLEAN!!! Good luck!
