    Purchasing a second hand 2008 RXPX. Help Please

    Hey GreenHulk Members,

    I am about to purchase a second hand RXP-X.
    It is a 2008 Model with 50 Hours on the clock.

    I am getting an inspection done at a Jet Ski place that will look at compression, hull condition and trailer condition.
    Is there anything else that I should tell him to look at it?
    Are there any common issues with the RXP-X that I should know about?

    Thank you all in advance

    Look at the wear ring, prop, and I would also verify the clutch washers are not ceramics and that they are metal 08 updated ones. I realize the ski is an 08, the updated washers were not introduced until late 08 production models.

    If the early x's came with ceramics then I must have got lucky. I bought my ski in winter of 08' brand new and still haven't rebuilt my s/c. It's still turning hard with 108 hours on her! Rebuild coming soon though.
    Keep us posted when you find out!

    NOT one X boat came with Ceramics period....

    BUT it is always a safe thing to do in inspect the SCer as you never know what people may do when selling a ski.

    Were are you located I have a mint P-X with 25 hours I am selling. And you can bet your but mine is perfect.

    Early production of the 08's had ceramics per SeaDoo. Second half of production were updated to the 08 spec washers. That is what I am basing my statement on.

    I have a early 08 RXPX and it had metal washers. Engine built like 11/07.

    I would pull the SCer and check slip, remove 2-3 spring washers and replace with 2-3 mcmaster spring washers.

    Check and make sure the intercooler is not pregnant, too.

    And what the others guys said about pulling the pump and checking the prop and wear ring.

    Adding: Check compression, alot of these ski have ring problem.

    I just done the SC rebuild and got the viton seal from Jerry. After having top up oil constantly and cleaning the intercooler and hoses I can say the new seal works.
