Any Ultra 250x regrets?
Have a '02 Yamaha XLT1200 and am thinking about moving to a 4 stroke. Want another 3 seater and I think the 250x would be what I am looking for. I know the gas mileage is very, very bad but I want to know from those who have one if they have any regrets or wish they had bought a different ski. The XLT was my first ski and we use it for pulling a tube and riding on some smaller rivers and lakes. When I ride it is only for a few hours and not for very long distances. We do get a lot of chop on these bodies of water cause of the heavy boat traffic. Any input would be appreciated.

only regret is sticking with the stock supercharger. nothing beats this machine in the surf.

I love the looks, and rough water ride. But after a cracked head and a thrown rod which led to total engine failure, I cant say I would buy one again.

I too am seriously considering buying a 08' 250x in the next 3 weeks the few that i am looking at are between 17hrs(lake) 22hrs( long island sound) and 43 hrs( jersey shore ) all in the $7000.00 range. found a couple leftovers with 0 hrs but add 1500 to the price. any stuff to be weary of on this style used ski? Hey JET250, what would you recommend upgrade the stock super charger too? DW250X---love the green/white !!!

if you are buying a second hand ski, remove the sc belt cover what you find will indicate where it was riden and how it was looked after, also check for crank float with a large screwdriver and ask for recpeits on last services, anything over 50hrs old replace pump bearings before your ride.

hey JET250 thanks for the reply, the one i am looking at currently has 23 hrs on it and it located in NY on the jersey side of long island stored on a floating dock. 7k is asking price without trailer...also checked out a 07 aquatrax f15x today not bad but was looking for more. i got a line on a 06 seadoo RXT with 75hrs on it for 6100 no trailer..not sure what i want but it has to be a 3 seater and beat only a couple peeps !!( they know who they are )

I wouldnt buy anything off a floating dock, I got my 15f off one and thats alot of wear on a ski, especially in the salt
just my 2 cents
