how many hours are too many ?
I'm looking at a 2005 GTX Non-SC 4-tec with 495 hours . Hull is in good shape, overall it's clean....it was probably a rental at one point. My questions are:
1) should I buy it for $2500 if the compression is good ?
2) what is the average cost of an engine rebuild ?
3) does this year have any common problems (non-SC) ?

the price seems right. Our rental company here routinely sells the 400+ hour rentals for $3500

You can not go wrong with the GTX Non-SC 4-tec it is a soild platform. My parts supplier has a customer with over 1600 hrs on one, motor never been part just regular maintenance, (seadoo's do not like lack of maintenance) learn how to and diy most of the up keep and you,re good

I sold a ski to a rental owner a couple years back. He said he averages around 800 hrs on his GTI's before having to replace the ECU's. Never has motor problems, but his electronics eventually corrode from constant salt use.
