    Most hours anyone has ever seen on a ski

    Hey guys, just wondering whats the most hours anyone has ever seen on a ski. I just saw a vx 110 on ebay with 544 hours on it... ive seen some rentals down here with 450-500 hours on them and i believe one with 750 one time... also just a quick question, how long can a gp-r 1300 go before it needs a rebuild or any major work done?

    There are a couple of VX's at a Miami Beach rental agency with 1500+ hours without a rebuild

    yeah but i would expect a 4 stroke to outlive a 2 stroke by a damn landslide unless something stupid happens like a timing belt snaps. Didn't jim say he has a motor that's got over 500 hours on it that's original?

    kind of an answer that doesn't belong on this forum, but a stock motor will last longer than a modded one. How many hours, I do not know.

    My '04 FX140 has over 500 hours on it. Regular oil and filter change, little TLC and you good to go.....better knock on wood now.
