    1991 Yamaha sx650 stand up

    Have a local guy selling his 650sx in immaculate condition, all stock except for primer system and carb work. Fires right up first try, compression 135. What's the ski worth? I'm just looking to buy it as a you and see if I like standups. I have ridden a superjet for a about 5 min and it was a workout but fun. For up first try, turning was hard I must admit. Good ski? Any huge issues? Are parts readily available? Any help would be great

    a 650 should be in the 140 range stock. 135 is still good. A 650 is a great ski and a perfect learning platform. its good anywhere from 600-1000 depending on condition.
    Hope this helped!

    Save your money. The 650sx has a cult following, but was never a great ski. I bought a couple nice shape ones a couple years ago for less than 500 a piece. They are great to learn on, and great as loaner skis, because anyone can ride them, but you will get bored with it real quick. Find a nice 750 sx/sxi. You will see those at around 1k from time to time, and it is a much better ski.

    i hardly ever see standups around northeast ohio. they seem to be rare compared to the sit downs. id like a newer superjet but im not looking to spend a bunch of money. only reason why im looking at buying this ski is its easy for 12 yr old daughter and wife to play around on as well as myself. i like the fact its super clean and 900.00 and turn key
