2005 F-12X vs 2007 F-12
I was hoping for some help picking out my first jetski.
2005 F-12X 39 hours $7200 CND
2007 F-12 75 hours 6500 CND
Is there a bad year for the honda's? I understand one is supercharged. Can anyone tell me how many hours I should expect before I gotta do a major repair. jetski season has started and in canada it doesn't last long so I really wanna get one this weekend and those two are my choices.
Also anything I should look at when I go see it. I tried looking for the post (sticky) in pwctoday but could not find it.
Thanks for any help.

1. Brand new ones still in crate from dealer available here in Ca. for 7499. ('07)
2. If you buy one of these 2 get the F-12X. 39 hours is nothing on a Honda. I have friends have 400 hour salt water no problem.
3. If buying the F-12X get a good look at the turbo. You need to spray down after each ride as it is carbon steel and rusts. If it has a little rust on it your in good shape. Check the waste gate actuator also.
