I am looking at a Kawasaki 260X. It is a 2009. It ingested some water. I beleive salt water. It still starts, the mechanic says the engine needs to take it apart to determine whats wrong. He is asking 4K on a 09' trailer. Is this worth picking up? What can I expect to need to do to fix it?

I'm looking at one in the states but sounds like a good buyer beware not to buy.

without knowing exactly what need to be repaired into the engine, the amount of money you'll put into it can play from $1000 to $4000 and it depend who's doing the job, how much salt water have been injested, how long before it have been flush and fog. These are performance engine and are costly to repair, If you try to cut corner to save money it will come back on you. You need to tear it all apart and start from there, crankshaft, bearings, valve, is just a sample of parts that could be damage.
IMO, 4000K is not a deal, it's the full price for a ski in that situation

i defintely would not do it. I sunk my RXP and ingested water out in the ocean one time and literally immediately started getting it all out. Problem with salt water is that it will start to corrode within 48 hours. If that thing ingested water a while back and still needs to be looked at then i would hate myself to be the person to find out lol.

A would not buy a used 2009 260X unless you know EXACTLY how the Ski was cared for and by whom. Even then, the odds are still stacked against you. If you are bent on a 260, the 2010 260X is a much better Ski . . . it has some significant upgrades which help in the reliability area. JB

Why not ask seller to take it to dealer and get inspection and repair estimate? Then you know. If its the 2009 black, blue and silver 260X, regardless of motor condition, she is priceless.
