    Buy a that sat unused for over 2 years? w/11 hrs?

    Still on the prowl for a used another 2008 RXT. Came across one that has only 11 hours. Was purchased in June of '08, used twice, and then sat locked away in storage until 3 weeks ago due to a divorce.

    That's a long time for a ski to sit. Should I stay clear of this one?

    I dont really see why it would matter

    Not much different to the 08 models that are for sale with 0 hours...

    Well, the hypothetical 2008 with zero hours would be nicely factory lubricated an wouldn't have any left over water sitting in the cooling passages.
    Now, what If they rode it in salt water didn't even flush it, and then just put it away in storage?
    In my opinion there is some risk involved, but hey it still could be a good deal or even a "steal" as everything depends on the price!

    Thanks, you're right it is closed-loop cooling system...
    If it was a two-stroke than it would be different story.
    If the price is right go for it!
