    Used Kawi Purchase Opinions Please...

    Hi guys, a non-forum member friend of mine is looking at making his first PWC purchase. He's not into mod & speeds, just cruising flat water and towing the wife/kids on the tube.
    Here is what he's looking at:

    I know the pitfalls of buying on Craig's but we can confirm legal ownership; the ski is a 20 minute drive from the house.

    All opinions and facts are welcome - thanks in advance,

    NEVER buy a used 'Ski without a test drive, unless you can work on it and know what you're getting into. Running it on the trailer means nothing except that it will start. I'd offer $2500 and see what they say (not really sure what the blue book is on it). Without a test drive, no more than $2000. A compression test is a really good idea.

    Keep in mind that the electronic display costs about $800 to replace if it doesn't work. Electric trim is also very expensive to fix. Make sure those both work. If they don't, discount accordingly.

    The 900 STX isn't a speed demon, but it's a good machine.
