    2003 XLT 1200 Help

    Well, after being out of skis for about 10 years i have been looking for a Sea-Doo GTX Limited but a friend of a friend just happened to bring me a 2003 XLT 1200 with 76 hours on it to work on. After looking at it not only did it loose the #1 piston but it took the crank, cylinder and crank case with it. It looks like the only salvagable parts are the #2 and #3 cylinders and pistons. Looks like the cause is the filter in the #1 carb looks a little cloged but no debris in it. The ski has been sitting for over 2 years so there was no fuel in the system. She has stated that she does not want to fix it due to cost so i am thinking about offering her a couple hundred dollars for it.

    My questions are:

    How does it compare to a GTX Limited (the ski i wanted)?

    Looks like about $2,800 just in parts to fix it, is it worth fixing?

    If fixed what is the resale value?

    People ask between 4k-5k for a 2003.

    Not sure what they actually sell for. Post some pics of the damage. Particularly the crankcase. I've got a 2001 XLT that I need a cylinder, piston and crankshaft for.

    Very pleased with my XLT. I like how stable it is in the rough as I can run WOT in a pretty good chop, it handles well for a three seater, nimble for its size. Lots of storage. Parts are abundant.

    I will try to get some pic's up but there is nothing to save except for the #2 & 3 cylinders. The crank can be rebuilt but a OEM crank is cheaper. Both the top and bottom case halves are broken beyond repair and the #1 reed valve is broken. If i buy it from her i will more than likely fix it eventhough I have been a Sea-Doo fan. Sorry, I have never owned a Yamaha so they could be good too. If i decide against it i guess i could part it out. Like i said the carb filter on #1 had a thin film on the screen but after pulling the mag cover there was oil inside so I think it was a combination of the slightly plugged fuel filter and a bad front crank seal that killed the #1 cylinder. I am going to see the owner today and have dedided i am only going to offer her a couple hundred bucks.

    Double ouch. Maybe triple ouch! The cheapest price I've found on a new OEM crank is ~$600. Used Crankcases seem to go for around $300. It that what you are finding? If you buy it an part it out, let me know, I might be interested in the #3 cylinder and piston.

    Those prices are what I am finding too. I met with the owner yesterday and she is going to think about what she is going to do and let me know. I will keep you posted on what the final decision is.
