Forgot to mention, he wants a trade for his glock 17 and $300. Total value he paid for his glock was $430 plus the $300 cash, equals total value of $730. So good deal or no? will post pics either tomorrow or friday

theres something fishy about a loaded ski with a trailer for $730. I'd want that ski GPS'd too. that hull with that motor is very hard to get to 70 and be dependable and not a wrencher. Im wondering if the motor is a 787 thats been stroked or if its a 787 or as everyone knows as an 800. the 98-and up XP's had the 951's in it and had more power and were faster. It really depends on what you are comfortable with. do your homework, compression test(150psi), title, check the wear ring, ect....that Factory pipe alone is worth 750

this is what i would do with it though.
1. do the trade for the glock and $
2. part it out
3. buy new glock with part out $$
4. pocket the rest
as nick already said, selling the pipe alone you will break even. the rest is ammo and range time.

its a great hull but under powered with the 800 motor. but at that price and with those parts on it it is a very good deal. which is why we where saying to get it and part it out at the worst.
and if its stolen then parting it out or turning it in would be the only ways to go.

Kind of sounds stolen to me. If he has paper work for the performance items then it is prob ok.
But I think most skis sit like that in the winter. No battery, no title, no key....
Otherwise good deal, but it might need some work to make sure it keeps running correct and if you are not into or know performance, prob not worth your time.
