    Question Input on 09 FX SHO heads, whats involved?

    Maybe looking into getting back into the game here after selling my RXT. i found an 09 FX SHO on CL. 170 hours, pulled a banana boat at a jetski rental place. They lost compression in a cylinder after dewinterization. the salt water did some damage. the guy wants $4k. i offered $2k and he said the lowest he would take is $3k. also has some bottom damage from running up on the floating dock, dude said it wasn't into the fiberglass though. missing a mirror and the seat could use a new cover. he said the cylinder piston and wall look good, no visibile damage and good cross-hatching.

    what do you think i would be looking at $$$ wise to get this back out on the water. i would only pull the trigger if i could get this for a great deal. sorry the pics are a little fuzzy, it's what he sent me.
    thanks for the input.

    The problem is if the head looks that bad i would say that the rings are also stuck, If you go for it be prepared to take the whole motor apart.

    Thanks Jim, i was fearing it looked like it needed a full rebuild, especially after 170 hours...i think i'll walk away from this one. Much appreciated.
