    Best stock jet ski?

    I am looking to buy a new ski and if I do anything, it will only be bolt on...for the most part stock...what's the best ski out there for this when it comes to top end and acceleration out of the hole?

    I currently Have an '01 GPR stage 2....

    You should find a local dealer and take the ski's you are considering out for a test drive.
    The ski's are all so different these days. It;s a lot of money to spend on someone else OPINION.

    Man find me a dealership in fl that will do test drives. I have not found one here yet. Just a risk factor. Cant even test ride bikes here.

    -I think the RXP would be the first choice.
    -I'd say the Ultra, but it's all just speculation at this point. Ask again in a week.
    -The GP13R is another option.

    I'd also throw the new Kawasaki Ultra 250 in the mix.

    From what we're hearing from preliminary reports, this ski will accelerate like no other OEM ski plus have decent top-end. Plus+ Plus it is de-tuned from factory Kawi..give me some metric tools and where the governors are located, we will see how fast she can go.

    Well, after the disaapointing Kawi release, I'd say:

    RXP
    Kawi
    GPR

    Have you gone to Gene's in Baytown? They offer test rides on their pond. They have S/D and Yami. When you're ready to buy, they will negotiate. In 05, I got them down to $8200 out the door on a GPR for a buddy of mine.
