2001 XL 700 Question
Looking at a used one in very good shape. There is no hour meter, but everything seems fine.
Any areas to check on these, where there might have been common problems/issues? How fast are these for being so large and only a 701?
Just looking for a entry 3-seater for my wife and kids, and something to play in the ocean with from time to time... would this yamaha be a good choice?

I had that same ski and it never broke down once on me.
Its a nice riding ski a lot drier than most.
We called ours the TURTLE, 45 mph.

Maybe id be better off with an old purple hull raider then, as I even have a few parts from my superjet that would transfer over..

Can anyone recommend some mods to at least bump up the low end, and maybe hit 50ish?
