New to forum. Sea Doo 2001 GTX Bombadier
New to forum and jet skis. Looking to buy my first ski from a friend. He is selling a 2001 GTX Bombadier and was wondering if anyone had any input on this model (RFI I think. Not DI). I'm buying a dual trailer and ski for $2900.00- what do you think? I'm a performance nut with cars so my question is does this model have room for improvement over stock? Is it reliable? I will take any info or advice regarding type of oil to use, spark plug suggestions, etc. Someday I will buy another for the other side of the trailer.

Hard to comment on price as it varies by area. The RFI and DI skis are great when they are running correctly when they start having issues you need a trip to the dealer or a Candoo pro system to properly diagnose them and parts are expensive. If you're looking to modify there is not much you can do to a fuel injected two stroke, leaving it stock would be the best bet for reliability. Personally I would not own an RFI or DI model spend a few more bucks and get an early 4tec GTX or GTS/GTI four stroke for reliability.
