    Need Help Buying a New Ski Today Kawasaki or Yamaha

    I am new to this site didn't quite know where to post this so here I go.

    I am buying a new 2009 Yamaha vx sport or a new 2009 Kawasaki Jet Ski STX today.

    The Yamaha is $400 more than the Kawasaki. Both are brand New skis. I was hoping or some advice, as this will be my first real ski and based on price these are my only two options. Thanks for any advice you can give. I am more concerned probably with reliability. The ski will sit during the summer on a drive on ski dock and garaged in the winter. The skis will be used in Clearlake CA.

    Thanks
    Brian

    Get the Kawasaki they run 62 mph. The VX sport is a rental machine that tops out around 53 or 54. Remember the STX-15f was at one time Kawi's flagship machine but got overshadowed by the bigger more powerful Ultra 250/260/300x boats.

    Honda!!!!!!! My 2008 VX Cruiser hasn't given me any problems. It has the cushy seat and has enough power but doesn't scream.
