    Sank 06 rxp

    Haven't really had any noteworthy news to post in a while, but thought I would mention my 06 RXP went down faster than the Titanic this weekend. Yep you've read the stories....STAY AWAY from the skat trac and rad 4 drive shaft bearing/seals. Say what you would like....he didn't grease after every ride, he didn't check hose clamps.........it is just not a reliable set up.

    I don't have to worry about it anymore, looks like the GP1300R will be the new project.

    Wonder how the insurance goes on this? I had coverage, and I did recover the ski, with an extra 100 gallons of lake water. Crap I'll never get 1/10 of the time and money I've got in it. Anyone ever got any $ for loss like this?

    i've had two friends turn there skis into insurance... both got payed very well... one of them hit rocks and destroyed the hull on a 06 gtx 155...think he got around 6,000 grand out if it... the other broke a riva driveshaft on a 04 rxp and the ski sunk...think he got 5,500 ish out of it...play dumb, "gee i dont know why it sank..." let them tell you what happen....im sure they take care of it...and let you buy the ski back for next to nothing...
