    9k for an 08 250x ??

    i stopped by the dealer today just to take a peek. they have a couple of 08's left over and the guy said 9k with no taxes and i dont need a trailer, so what do u guys think? i was considering the 260x, but the price doesnt seem that bad.

    under 1k more and you have the 260x. Thats not a deal for a 250x

    Smile No expert... but here is my opinion

    First off, I am no expert, far from it I am pretty much a noob. However, I have done a lot of research for a noob and here is my opinion:

    No way in hell! There are TONS of '09 Ultra 260X skis available for under $10K. I have seen some '09 Ultra 260X dealer listings online for as low as $9,000. From everything I have been told the 260X is a much better and more reliable ski. You would be making a mistake if you paid that much for a '08 250X, especially in this economy.

    I think $8K is much more reasonable but I am not sure I would even pay that much for a 250X at this point, I would recommend that you save up and buy a 260X unless you can get an absolutely CRAZY good deal for an '08 250X, say $7,500.

    Good luck!

    PS: +1 on crashhard's post, this is defiantly NOT a good deal

    Well first off I haven't seen any 09' 260x for under $10,000. Don't know where you all are seeing those--none on EBay for less than $10,000.

    I got my 07' in the spring for $8250 with the rebates, etc. I heard of them going for maybe $8,000 but that's it. I've been watching all summer the prices and they didn't get much lower for an 07'. Watching the 08's it looks like some went as low as $8500. The best I could do in the spring was $9100.

    So, end of season and such, I'd shoot for mid or low 8's. If they don's sell the 08's in the next several weeks it probably won't be until next spring for the dealer which isn't cheap I'm sure.

    And with all that in mind, I've put 45 trouble free hours on my ski so far this season. Even using as little as 5 gallons an hour cruising at 25-35 mph.
    Get an extended warranty for $600-700 for an additional 4 years and you should be set if you have ok dealers nearby.

    There are tons on pwc-traderonline under $10K, some even under $9K but not sure if I trust those listings

    Brand New '09 Ultra 260X: $9,149 @ PCP Motorsports, Sacramento, CA

    Here is another I found on boattrader.com:

    Brand New Ultra 260 LX: $9,699 @ Bristow's Kawasaki & Polaris, Saint Cloud, MN

    I would not even consider purchasing a Ultra 250X at this point. The Ultra 260X is a much better ski. It is just a little bit more $$$ but it is totally worth it. You can easliy compete in offshore races on one bone stock.

    And with all that in mind, I've put 45 trouble free hours on my ski so far this season. Even using as little as 5 gallons an hour cruising at 25-35 mph.

    I have 135hrs+ on my '07 Ultra 250X, no issues so far (knock on wood). Purchase a service manual and do as much work as possible yourself to save some $$$ and make sure it is done right. I still reccomend a extended warranty for peace of mind as dmk mentioned though

    Man, you weren't lying. There are no good prices down there in FL. Well, look at the bright side, you now have an excuse for a road trip. Did someone say white castle ?

    And it always seems that those hot prices, and even some not so hot, always have a doc fee along with freight/setup which is typically $400 or more.

    So Naptown you think the 260 is THAT much better? $1000-1500 better?

    I'm still a newbie here and to the ski market but I don't see the difference. My 07' has been great.
