    I say go get it especially if it's 91 or later model.

    For $250 that guy better garuntee that all it needs is a starter and wear ring. these skis are great because of how simple they are, I'm in highschool and I have no problem working on my '87 650 when it comes to the newer skis, im completly lost. funny knowing they're both engines but one looks like its from an alien spaceship!

    $750 for both sounds great for the beginning of the season. make sure to post pics and welcome to the hulk!

    I'm pretty sure the starter is the same. If you look on ebay or amazon for replacements, the js550 and 440 have the same one.

    does it not have an engine?

    Well to start with mods, what does it have already? post pics if your not sure about something..
    I would start with the basics (prop, intake grate, ride plate) then if you wanna get into the engine I'd say a factory pipe or west coast exhaust, a carb (i use mikuni) and maybe a high compression head.
