    $10000 for 2008 250X and 2007 15F both 60 Hrs.


    I was hoping some of you could share your thoughts. I can buy the above skiis for 10K and am concerned about what I am hearing about 250X reliability. Both skiis have 60 hours on them, never seen salt, with trailer. Should I get them? Sure seems like a good deal.

    I am not a mechanic but my friend is. What tests can I do to check them before buying? Should I stay away from the 250X? It sure sounds like a blast.

    We are looking at them tonight. Someone will buy them quick at that price.

    I would not buy a used 250x unless I knew the previous owner and complete history of it. Or unless it still had extended warranty on it. Use the search function on here and you will find tons of info. I would do alot of reading before making this decision.

    PASS on it.
    I have a few friends who weren`t so lucky...
    There good ski`s if "you" own them from the beginning and do all the required work mentioned throughout this forum... Good Luck in your quest!

    2010 260 has the new styles head

    the difference is the water hole that are NOT their on the 2010 , more alloy making it stronger, Lucky KAWI said they never had a problem .
    But they seen fit to modify the area that always cracked

    Can I buy an aftermarket warranty on the 250x?

    There may be some aftermarket warranties available, but the kawasaki extended warranty has to be purchased before the factory warranty expires.
