    would you buy an '05 RXT with 225 hrs?

    Does that sound kinda high up in the hours range? If so how much would you spend?

    How are the maint records? Has the SC been rebuilt every 100 hours? Oil changed every 25 to 50 hours? Coolant changed every 200 hours? Plugs changed when needed?

    If there has been no problems and the previous owner has done all the maint when required, why not buy it? I hear these 4tecs can last forever.

    not sure about maint. records but it was used only in fresh water supposedly. I know price varies by location but Im curious how much value a ski with these hours would cost someone, or would spending extra for lower hours be the route. I know the 4tecs are more reliable than the old 2 strokes just not sure by how much.

    It's always a gamble when buying anything used. Yea, it would be smart to find something with less hours, but look at it this way. You could find a lower maint ski, but that owner could have abused the ski, ceramic washers could have failed, etc. Then you could look at a high hour ski where the owner kept up on the maint, had no problems, etc.

    No idea on how much skis with those hours are going for.

    You can pick up a 05-06 RXT with minor mods and less then 100 hours for arround 5,000.
    So go figure, not worth near that IMO.
    Do a compression check before you go any further.
