Major Differences between RXP and RXP-X???
Hey guys I found a good deal on a low hour (32), like new 05 RXP for 6500 with trailer, and no mods/ or scattered washers. My buddy has a almost 80 mph - GPS'd 08 RXP-X (got alot of goodies in it). We both race closed course so flat out speed isnt a priority, but I still want it quick ~ 70's.
My question is 6500 for the 05 w/ trailer, or a new 08-09 "non-current" for around 9500 -10k, and still need a trailer?
What were the major issues with the 05's? and what should be done?

I have an 05 Rxp... besides the supercharger washers going i havent had any problems with it... I have heard that the seals go out which can sink your ski very fast. I have also heard of several needed upgrades like flywheel bolts that need to be done to these skis.
If you do get the 08 or 09 I would still check the washers on the SC and replaces them with the riva ones. I know the X model has a different larger intercooler and is the "Racing" model from what i have been told. Also the dealer told me that a lot of the SC problems were fixed on 08 models and up. For me 6500 for an 05 RXP is a little High.. the RXPX needs to have low hours on it also for 9500 and be in good condition.. Check the hull and inside very well... it also depends a lot on how the ski was rode if it will be worth that much.

I'd offer $5000 on the rxp. 6500 is high for the year

if your wide open all the time the oiling system on the newer models are better. i tapped my pto housing and updated to the new style, so it can be done... not that it is a deal breaker but i paid 7500 for my 04 about 4 years ago.. came with a comfab pwt double trailer, had 26 hours on it, fresh water only. deals are out there to be had now, the economy still blows triceratops penis

Well I think you guys will be proud of me. I bought an 08 RXP-X with a Sweet Karavan trailer w/ Roller Bunks for $8k! Only has 15 hours on it! Now to figure out what mods to do first!!!
