    SeaDoo Xp 800

    So I just bought this Seadoo Xp 800 for $1000 w/ trailer. Its had its engine rebuild late 2010 so it has roughly 20 hours on it and everything works except the VTS (have not looked at it yet). Its runs smooth with the flush kit on but I haven't put it on the water. I bought it under the impression it is a 96 xp but when I looked at the vin number the last two digits are 95, it has a DESS key which looks like it came standard on the doo because of the decals around it. I know DESS was introduced in 96', so im not quite sure what year it is. I was wondering if you guys could help identifying what year model it is?

    if you look @ the vin-hull identification number, the last two digits are the year it was produced.
    and BEFORE those 2 digits are two more that are the model year.
    although im unsure if its two or one of those numbers shows the model year..

    so say your vin is something like
    XXXXX695
    or
    XXXX9695

    so, this being said, check the number before the last two. it will tell you the model year. while the last two are the production year.

    hope i helped.

    P.S. congratz on the new purchase

    please take the stupid fox racing stickers and what ever sticker that is on the front above the reg numbers. this is a rare ski. I think from the looks of it is missing the hump seat. there are not many left in this good of shape. you got a heck of a deal. buff that ski out top and bottom and ride the hell out of it! do not remove the original decals they are in awesome shape too!

    ok so its a model year 95 (hence the 5) and production year 95 (last two digits)

    i was confused about if they put only the last digit or both digits in the `model` year.

    coincidentally, my 06 rxp last digits are XXXXXXXX0606. (atleast i believe it is by memory...)

    and yes, nice looking ski :P

    have dun this summer. !
