Sorry to bring up an old thread, but I'm trying to figure out if the sea-doo I'm looking at buying has the 951 motor or not. The guy says it's a "1998 Bombardier 900 GSX 2 person ski." It's a little far away from me so I don't wanna get there and find out it dosn't have the bigger motor. I've seen pics of it and it's grey & red, so it sounds like it's a late 1997 with a 951 motor, would this be correct?
Here's a pic of it:

The 1st year for the 951 & it was/is the bastard child of seadoos..

Cool. thanks for the info guys.
There's this GSXL and a 1996 Kawasaki 1100 for sale in the same area for the same asking price. I'll be checkin them both out here shortly.... I sold my ski boat and I'm gonna need somethin to have fun on this summer....

Like ou812 said. The 97 1/2 and 98 951 had allot of problem. The 99 and newer motor were better. But that motor is hit or miss. It can run for ever or grenade at any time. Good luck
