potential purchaser of 2001 yamaha xlt 1200
i am negotiating with an owner of a 2001 yamaha xlt 1200. 3 grand with trailer. this seems to be the blue book price. anything i should know or check before i commit to buy? i have a 2002 same model, and know about the exhaust guides, the oil lines coming loose, and the potential for the cat to clog the exhaust. i can't really tell that there is much difference between the 2001 and the 2002. any input would be greatly appreciated. thanks
former sea doo owner, will never own one again.

No difference except graphics from 01 to 02. Make sure you ride it though to make sure its good to go. A sick Yamaha can sound pretty good on the trailer, especially with clogged internal carb filters or other carb problems. Price is ok if its nice, but just a few items to fix can make it alot more expensive than you could imagine.

For that money I would look at a 4 stroke I have had nothing but problems with all the yamaha 1200s I have had. Just my 2 cents.

Also, make sure to do a compression check, and make sure your readings are similar to each other (within 5-10lbs)
Crzyjetsky, tell me where I could get a 4 stroke for 3 grand, that is one that doesnt have a blown engine, or stolen?
I have a XL Yammi, and love it, plenty of power, and lots of room for upgrades. Providing you dont buy someone elses headache, they are solid skis, get as much history you can from the seller, receipts ect. Good Luck
