Which waverunner comperable to the Sea-doo GTI?
My folks are looking at skis now, and dad got a decent OTD quote on a pair of Sea-doo GTI 130s on a trailer.
I told him to also consider waverunner, but didn't know which model to steer him towards. Best I can tell the VX is in the same price range, but can't find any compairos.
One thing cool about the Sea-doo is the closed cooling system, but I told him the Waverunners are legendary for reliability.

Id say the VXs /VXr (1800 cc) would be the closest to compare....just remeber the VXs/r are bare bones skis, a lot less bells and whisltes, but that means a lot less things to go wrong with it, no supercharger worries, less fuel burn.....etc.......same with the FX HOs.....more bells and whistles then the VXs/r.....
The more I ride my VXs the more I like it, its just a good basic ski.....More like what a Personal Water Craft should be in my opinion..............

he's getting 2 sea-doos for a pretty good price. they seem like really cool skis. I think he may be set on them. I did try and steer him towards the yamaha though. I hope they don't outrun my FX140 too bad, they're only rated at 130hp, even though they're 400cc bigger XD

no they are 4stroke. 1400cc or something.
