    Yep, 580cc from 1988 to 1991 or so with the old style electronics inside the flywheel case. only 55hp 60hp tops....If this is your first ski........dont because you'll hate it. HX is NOT for everyone. jmo

    My old HX had a 580 that I later put a 700 into. That no doubt is a 580. I want an hx and put an 954 in it.... Gonna be fun....

    The HX was only in production for 3 years 95-96-97, and all years had the 717cc engine.

    Not sure why someone would put a 580 in it
