RXP 2008 vs RXP 2009 (obv. 215)
I may have run accross a deal here in Ontario for a new 2008 or 2009 (the place looks like they have both in stock...but still waiting to hear back from them).
Just wondering if there is any difference between the years...the 08 is the first year with the metal washers...so that's good.
Oh, the 2009 seems to be $500 more than the 08.

spend the $500 and go for the 09 you will be happy when its time to sell it.

08s are red and the 09s are yellow. The changed the jet pump design and shaft design. The rest is the same. Thats about all I remember.

The washers should still be changed in the 08+. They are not solid metal but metal coated. Nothing can beat the solid metal washers!

09 will have a higher resale BUT i choose the 08 cause of that nasty yellow.

Jet pump and shaft...does this affect anything in terms of quality or anything? Am I gonna care? lol
I think the red is pretty nice, but I like yellow too...so it's just the price I'm considering...
Anyone have a trailer I could borrow? lol
I'm out of Toronto, ride in Honey Harbour.

If they change something its suppose to be a improvement, right... I know I have trouble with water getting into my pump do to high tunnel pressure. I think it getting thru the front seal and I think this maybe one thing they were trying to fix.

So it looks like I'm more than likely going to have to get a 2007...I can't seem to find a 2008 new/used. Maybe I'm just not being patient enough...I dunno.
But just so I know...is there any difference between the 2007 vs 2008 other than the ceramic washers?
