    Thoughts on 2000, 2001 RX

    Looking into purchasing a 2000 RX. I do not know much about these ski's minus the fact that they have the 951 rotex in them. It has a rebuilt engine with 34 hours on it, and the boat has 109 hours total. Comes with a trailer, and the gel coat looks good. He's asking $3300 or best offer. Seems like a good price assuming the compression is good. I do value the opinions of the members on this forum though so experiences with the RX would be greatly appreciated.


    Thanks!

    You'll like it if the VTS works,...i love mine, if i sold mine thats the price i would start at because of the KNOWN condition of it.Those have the junkie ass plastic pump that the stators break off and messes up the pump effentency. I replaced mine with a 98-99 LTD ski all brass pump(including the wear ring). So Crawl under it with a light and have a look at the impeller and wear ring (the thing around the impeller) and look through the jet nozzle to have a gander at the stators (the half curved things) the edges facing the impeller need to be straight. Then have a look in the bilge for excessive oil,if so look at the injection oil tank. they normally leak where they were plastic welded together. The press the Start/Stop button, look for the Power up on the Gauges and test the trim (VTS). good luck to ya

    thanks for your help! i'll be sure to check all those things. How hard was it for you/cost to replace pump, Do you think its worth it? Any idea on what the compression should be in the cylinders?
