    Angry 04RXP bought on Ebay with 25hrs ENGINE BLOW in 5 minutes. Fix or sell AS-IS??

    This is my sad story. I bought o4 RXP on Ebay two weeks ago. It had only 25hrs. Before I gave the guy money, I put it in a no wake pond and it ran 65mph. Only for a minute, and than I ran for cover.
    After I finaly got all paper work notirized... and got registration in NYC I finaly put it in the water last Friday. It didn't go over 50mph and in less than 5 minutes it stopped. The plug on 1 cylinder is all pounded by the piston and I lost all the coolant. It won't turn over. There was red oil in the engine????
    I'm very unlucky or it was a setup.
    I bougth it AS-IS. So now I don't know if I should rebuild or sell as-is.
    Any thoughts?
    Where can I get discount on parts? Dealer is asking 3-4K!!!

    wow..

    Hey, what did the dealer say the problem was? Same thing happened to me and the dealer could not determine the cause. Long story short, Seadoo ended up giving me a brand new engine. The wanted to put the blame on me, but could not figure out what the problem was.

    I'm in NYC Mahattan, but the ski is in PA. About 100 miles from NYC.
    At the dealer they said, that it will take $250 to find out what is wrong, but it will be in $3-4K.
    Anybody know where to get used engine?
    Taking offers on the ski AS-IS.

    That sucks man. Good luck with it. I bought my GP1300R over ebay. It only had 8 hours and looked brandnew. Havent had a problem with it except the ones I have made lol. I think it is just about who you buy it from. Also a good thing to do when buying over ebay is to have the guy take the ski or boat to the dealer and have them look over it and give it a clean bill of health.

    i'm not all that far... actually just passed thru PA yesterday on the way home.... and thru the city. i go to school in the city and i live on Long Island.

    let me know if u want help, let's crack the motor open and see if it's rebuildable or a useless core. could always get a reman from seadoo... i believe 3500 gets you a reman from seadoo directly.

    is there oil all over in the bottom of the hull?

    which cylinder's spark plug took the pounding?

    any visible holes thru the cases or chunks of rod floating around?
