    #1yes, there are PLENTY of mods that can be done to this ski. the sky is the limit...depends on how much time and money you want to put into it.
    #2 the 06 still had the ceramic washers in the super charger.If you can, before you buy the ski find out if it's had the washers changed to the riva washers or something comparable.or if it's ever had a washer failure.might save you a headache down the road

    you're welcome.. yeah as long as the ski hasn't ever ingested water or eaten some washers you should be good .the years previous to 06 had problems with the valves in the head dropping and causing major damage but they were corrected in 06.....some others might chime in with more info if I've missed something...good luck!

    I have 2006 with little money and mods and I am doing 77 in the Texas heat. As long as there has been no water ingestion and washer failure I say you are good to go. I would shy away from the 04 and 05 's as they are slower mod for mod.

    I Have never heard of the 04 and 05 being slower mod for mod, I have a 05 rxp with less mods than my friends 06 and 07, I am faster than both of them, and on my conversion with a 05 motor ran 92.2 with a rude1, so as far as being slower never heard that.

    I have a buddy that been through many skis and from we have found is that the 04-05 have been 1-2 mph slower on the top end. Most likely due to cam timing.

    I know there many other factors such as hull, etc. But this seems to be the consensus from his testing.
