    which rxp 215 to buy

    Over the winter i bought a 2007 rxp 215 (red/white) with 23 hours on it and 2 weeks ago it blew up with 35 hours on it with a fresh oil change. My story leads me to 2 jetskis that i am currently looking at and i need an opinion on which one you think i should go with both are 2007 rxp 215 (red/white)
    heres the difference

    jetski 1-
    --76 hours on it
    --supercharger washers changed directly from showroom floor at owners request
    --single owner who seems to know alot about the jetski
    -- 2 life jackets/ oem jetski cover
    --just changed oil/ spark blugs/ fliter/ wear ring
    --single trailer
    downside is its 6 hours away...

    jetski 2-
    --34 hours on it (i hesitate to buy one with lower hours because it seems odd)
    --single or double trailer available
    --no cover
    --2nd owner (bought it last year from dealership)
    --has no idea if the washers in ths superchager has been changed ( so probably not)
    -- only 35 minutes away and willing to drop it off (no charge because he works close)

    Both jetskis are the same price and i feel like jetski 1 even being so far away the owner seemed like he knew what he was talking about and said i could take it out in the lake behind his house before i bought it. Im hesitant to buy another jetski because i just bought this rxp over the winter and have had nothing but problems since i bought it i just want to make sure i go for "the right one". Just looking for opinons here both jetskis are $6,500. i just dont understand how you can be the second owner and only have 34 hours on it when they cost $13,500 new in 07?

    shoot me some opinions! btw i blew up the lower end (threw a rod) on my jetski

    #2 , Change the washers yourself. "easy" Make sure to water test it.
    For the price of a 6 hour drive, you can get the new washers, and a cover if you like.

    No kidding. I bought mine brand new this spring and already have 43 hrs on it. But some people buy stuff and never really use it... Ran into a 2002 GP1200R last summer with only 18hrs on it.....

    Sometimes the longer drive could be worth it .. But like mentioned before with the amount of money youll spend on gas u could have #2 delivered and use the gas money on washers and a cover ??!!
