2008 RXT-X or 2009 FZS?
I can get both of these for the same price. The FZS is stock with under 20 hours, the RXT-X has under 50 hours and has grate, wedge, fizzle intercooler, riva nozzle kit, and home made rear air. I have personally ridden both skis. Which ski should I pick and why?

well I have both, and I can tell you I always ride the FZ for the same money and 30 less hours I would get the FZ plus if you planon modding I would get the FZ for sure

I think the RXT has a superior ride in the chop, but a number of owners of the 2008's have had problems with cracked pump tunnels; this can be a big headache. Also, keep in mind, if you drop a valve on one of these 4 strokes the cost for parts and certified labor can exceed the value of the craft. I would go for the Yamaha if it still has an extended warranty. If it doesn't, then I would probably walk away from both of them and find a ski with an extended factory warranty which you can transfer into your name. Pre-owned Yamahas can be found with up to 5 years of coverage, it's called the Y.E.S. Warranty. Of course if you plan to make major modifications, the warranty may not matter to you. If you don't mind driving a little ways, you can usually find a zero-hour 2009-2010 FZ hold-over sitting at a dealers for about $9,500 maybe less. What are they asking for the FZS?

I'd say it depends on where you ride and what you plan on doing with it.
