    Pre buy check list. (or: what should I check before I am buying a ski)

    Hello guys,

    Recently I bought a second hand 2003 XLT 1200. However, It's engine was replaced and unfortunately I think that my deal was not quite good.

    Now, I am looking into buying another ski after selling this one and honestly I don't know what should I to check and how before I am actually pay money.

    I will be more than glad if some of you could help me around here - what should I check before buying a Yamaha ski. My preferred models are XL\XLT between the years 2000 to 2003.

    Thanks a lot!

    check compression and take it to the water and ride it before paying

    Check compression, hull, gauges, pump, impeller, water test it, check handling and acceleration/top speed, check the spark plugs, check to make sure it doesn't take on water..if all of tha is good, you're probably gonna be fine.
