    Congrads on taking a step up. How many hours on it? Has the supercharger been updated? Any codes in ecu (press set button 5 times quick) and normal other stuff that you would check on anything wear ring prop and all that fun stuff!

    I will check out all of the hours and the codes when i take a look at it next week. What will the codes tell me? Im not sure on the supercharger. Should i not get it if the supercharger isnt updated?

    Thanks,
    Charlie

    Test ride it. That ski should run 7600 RPM. Look at oil color, wear ring and prop and note the hours.

    7600 rpm is the rev limiter. If you test ride it and get anything close to 7600, it may be a fine deal. If you ride it and get a couple hundred rpm below 7600, the cause could be the wear ring, impeller, etc.

    The top speed will vary ski to ski. I think the 185 hp skis average 62 mph, maybe 63 at 7600 rpm.

    My '03 GTX 185 just ran 62.0 GPS @ 7590 rpm this past weekend so I would say you are spot on

    My 06 GTX 185 runs between 62 and 67 on the speedo not sure how accurate it is. Def check those rpms they will tell you if the chargers working properly. If its not it will go 45 to 50 and the engine rps will be under 7000. Def ride the machine I wouldnt buy it not being able to ride it.

    Beat him up on the price if the supercharger has not been done. You can have it done on this site for about $400. I have had many done all have been top notch when they came back.
