    2008 250x what to look for?

    Having only owned seadoo rxp-rxpx previously am going to try a second hand ultra 250x.
    The ski is bone stock and only done 22hrs since new.
    Is it just all the usual cheecks you would do or any specific points to look for with this mode?
    thanks alot.

    Salt or fresh use ? If salt make sure it was flushed well
    Inside is clean no rust check belt condition pulley condition requires removing belt gaurd remove spark plugs look for rust and to make sure they come out. And general condition.

    I checked mine out for the normal stuff, then took it out and ran it hard for a while. Come back and check the oil for water.
    So far I've nearly doubled the amount of hours since I bought it. 85 now and runs great.

    Said fresh water mostly and he has got reg stickers for the nearest lake to us so craft is registered there.
    Ok how long does the belt usually last 5 years?

    Crank float is the back and forth play in the crank, usually cause by a failed pump making the driveshaft push into the engine.
    That's why you will hear about the bearing mods for those pumps, so if it fails it won't destroy your engine.
