    Sold my 08 RXTX for $7200.00 last year and it had 55 hours on it, no trailer though.

    I might get bashed here but I have found the Yamahas are extremely dependable. We have a 2006 VX110 with 400 hours and only changed the oil. My Sea doo's and Kawasaki's seemed to always have some kind of issue. Just my opinion.

    What area you are from depends a lot on the price.
    In Florida 7200 for a 08 with 125hrs is too much.
    They are great skis and I've had a lot of rxtx and rxpx skis.
    Has the charger been rebuilt?
    If not get it done.
    Ive seen stock chargers go 150 hours before being rebuilt but the skis were ridden with care and in calm waters.
    The more the ski comes unhooked from the water the more abuse the charger takes.
    Is it a fresh or salt water ski?

    I personally don't buy skis that aren't paid off.
    The title gets sent to them even if you pay it off.
    Big risk if they want to Dick you over they can.

    I have found a ski locally at dealer ,, it is a 2005 RXT 27 hours,, yes 27,, it has a newer triton trailer,, it looks to be in excellent shape,, they want 4499.00 for ski and trailer,, this sounds like a better deal , even if I pull the charger before riding season and have it rebuilt.. thoughts??????????

    I would have then hook up their computer to the ski to verify the hours.
    Gauges can be changed real easy. But actual hours are also stored in the ecu.
    Low hour skis sometimes have valve issues from sitting and condensation in the hull can allow moisture to get to the valves and rust them.
    Also I think the doos had some sodium filled valves on 06 and older that were prone to breaking..
    Search this site you will find threads that will tell you what to watch for.
    Ride the shit out of it before buying....

    What area do you live in.
    That is a big factor in pricing...

    I would go with the RXT-X, If you get the 215HP you will aventually spend more $$$ to by parts to get it as fast as the RXT-X
