    1998 seadoo GSX limited

    I am looking at a 98 GSX limited. Has 255 hours but 20 on a rebuild engine. 150 & 155 psi in cylinders. Everything works. Took it for a test drive and it runs good. The trim around the ski is a little messed up. He is asking $2800. Is that a fair price? Anything I should look for? Thanks in advance!

    out here $2500-3000 about right
    but i do not think a 951 should have 150psi. that's right for 787 and 717 though.

    Compression is OK given possible gauge variation. 145 psi is std, I believe. Shaved head, maybe? Does it have flame arrestors? Trim is easy to replace, BTW.

    $2800 does seem high. It'd be sweet if i could get that for one of mine, & they're kinda special!

    I have two 98 GSX-L that show just under 150psi compression and everything is stock except for R&D flame Arrestor - and would surely sell them for 6k with double trailer..
    The one boat has 200 hrs on it and has had a recent engine rebuild (top and bottom end) and everything works as it should..
    The other boat has 138 hrs on it and has never been apart that I know of and has been issue free, it just does not read the fuel level..

    you will need to run premium and jet it fat if it really does have 150+ psi. It should be 130-135.

    As already mentioned, only problems I've ever had with ours is the drive gear on the trim sticks sometimes and the fuel gauge sending unit/float was repaired by the dealer early on.

    About the price one would fetch here in Ontario. A low hours mint one around here on a trailer might go 3500-3800.
