Looking at 2 "new" jet skis, tell me what you think.
I was wondering if I can get some advice if this is a good deal or not. Two skis the first is a 1996 Kawasaki 900 zxi Jet Ski and the other is a 1995 Yamaha Waverunner III 700. I got a lead on them from my brother in law, his brother has owned them since new. Went to look at them today, the look good from the outside except the back of both seats, their dog decided to have then for a snack and ripped the vinyl off them. He is letting me take them to the lake on Tuesday for a test ride, he states that they are in good working order. The asking price is $2000.00 and comes on a double trailer with a tool box. What do you think?

if they were properly maintained and operate flawlessly on the water then 2k for 2 decent skis and a trailer sounds decent, although if problems arise, you could have probably bought newer ones by then

Back in the day we modded them, any thing over 2 to 3 mph over stock they had a tendency to stuff and either go left or right HARD......in the right (or wrong conditions) they can stuff in stock form. A buddy of mine got pitched back then , he complained, Kawi bought the ski back from him.......

Luckily for me my brother in laws brother sold the skies out from under me. Thats a good thing after the advice and information from the great people on this forum. With that, I have the opportunity to purchase a Yamaha SUV 1200 that has come available. All things seem to work out in the end.
