    2007 Seadoo RXT vs. 2008 Yamaha SHO FX

    Hey guys i have found a 2008 Yamaha Sho fx in Georgia with 94 hours on it, it looks good,, I think I can get it for 6500 dollars,, what are your guys thoughts on the ski,, does the supercharger have to be rebuilt like seadoos,, can the supercharger "break" like seadoos and blow up the engine or will it give way or what,, I am very knowledged on Seadoos and was going to look at a 120 hour 2007 Rxt seadoo this week for 6000, but this yamaha popped up and I am trying to decide between the two,, I'm not brand partial,, and am not going to mod, I just want a low maintenance ski, didn't know if its tip for tap between the two or what,, just not familiar with the supercharger Yamaha, thanks in advance for the help.

    I'm a Seadoo guy honestly, but the Yamaha seems to be the better deal in this case. I know the Yami's have clutch issues at times, and the Seadoo supercharger will need to be rebuilt every 100 hours. If you aren't modding, you'll probably be ok either way you go. Good luck!

    You're going to get many biased answers. The two skis are made for different purposes, the Yamaha seems like the better deal.
