    400 Hours/26 months - 2010 FX SHO Original Clutch, Never a Repair

    Just for grins I'm posting this over here on the Seadoo side of the world. Having just bought a new RXP-X I'm looking forward to seeing the same durability and even better performance than this machine.

    Not sure if this is a milestone or not but I thought I'd throw it out there as a testament to the reliability of these skis. 400 hours of very hard riding mostly in the Gulf of Mexico but also all over the state of Florida from the St. Johns to the Suwanee River and down to the Everglades. About to make the jump to Grand Bahama island from Boynton Beach. Will easily be 500 by the end of July.

    YuuP, great ski, great reliability, certainly am looking forward to PX results over next couple years as well. Good news is I'll get first hand accounts!

    Yes, similar experience here.

    Stock FZ, riva air filter, ribbon gone, r&d bov, r&d plate, sponsons, 400+ hrs (been through 2 batteries) nothing wrong yet

    Built FZ, 3 s/ch touch downs, 2 broken shafts, blown motor, 37 sprag clutches (yes) pump bearings, sinking. 80 hours.

    New 2013 RXPX - i/cooler leak, throttle body gone, charger slipping - Box Stock. NB. Awesome to ride

    Next Ski will be the Ultra, I'll give it a go

    Whoa...Scotch...you and I think too much alike.

    But I hope I don't have the problems you have had with the P-X. None of those that have them that I ride with have reported any problems. Hopefully yours are sorted out.
