    New leftover 2008 Ultra 250x?

    What do you guys think of a new 2008 Ultra 250x for $9,300? Are these really a reliability risk? I really like the looks, power, and off shore ability.

    If you want to go with an Ultra I would stick to the 2010 260x or any model year 300x. These years have significant upgrades as compared any year 250 or the 2009 260x. JB

    I really want either a 250 or 260 over the 300 as I like the gauges more. Problem is I can't find any new 2010 260s anywhere. What specific upgrades are there?

    The big ones are:
    - Better Pump / Pump Bearing Assembly
    - Better Cylinder Head

    There are more, but these two should be enough to steer you away and guide you to the "better" Ultras I mentioned in Post #2.

    I can get you 2 2008's for $10,000 with trailer so you will have a spare one for parts.

    The 08 250x is OK,upgrade the pump within the first 30-40hrs of use and you can do nothing about the head issue. Yes people have had head failures and some people haven't, be interesting to know the true failure rate in % terms as for every head that cracks you probably have 10 that don't???

    I have 70hrs on my 08 and touch wood no head issue to date, upgraded my pump with double bearing and jam nut as well as change the stock pulleys for the Rogue (OEM).

    -Ugrade pump
    -remove pulley cover
    -Lots of TLC after use (washing, lubing, flushing & DRYING)
