    Cool picking up 2x 2012 gti 130's

    I know how to check over skis but just wanted to hear from some Gti owners to see if there are any special things to look for.
    These units are rentals that have 25-50 hrs.
    Thanks in advance!!!

    Rip on...

    Not really its just a basic stock standard ski.
    Check carbon seal, Pump, oil, ibr for Smooth movement, pull fuse box lid look for moisture.
    I like my 2012 130 very reliable apart from when my ibr blew up warranty took care of it.
    Pull a tube and wakeboarder no probs enjoy...

    I'd be interested in knowing what happened with the iBR?

    Yeah.
    I'm getting 2 for 10,500 with no trailer
    They will be headed over seas once I check them out for a week or 2 of riding.

    My IBR just blew a fuse and that was it never worked again, I put a new fuse in and it blew straight away dealer changed it out, I probed to find out what was wrong but they never really said what was the matter. I reckon water got in the ibr somehow

    When it blew could you still move for ski forward? Were you stuck unable to move the ski or get back to shore?

    You always get the best deals. I'm surprised a rental place would get rid of them with so few hours.

    Well I have a very disappointed update.
    I drive from Orlando Fl to Daytona and then to Key West Fl.
    The skis that were advertised for $5500 each were 2012 seadoo Gti 130's with around 25 hrs.
    They were 2012 Gti 130's that had 28 & 38 hrs on the dash.
    But inside the hulls of all 7 were the skis replacement parts and hrs at time of change.
    All the skis had 800-975 hrs written on the inside of the hulls with a list of parts the had been replaced.
    The seats on all 7 were ripped in different places.
    Bumpers cracked
    Missing parts and misc latches and broken oil dipsticks.

    This guy has the balls to lie to me after telling him I sold 100+ skis this last year and I know what to look for over the phone..
    He sent me emails prior to the trip that say the skis look great and run great.
    What a load of shit this guy is telling everyone.
    He tells me after I call his bs that the skis motors were completely rebuilt at 28 & 38 hrs ago.

    I said is that also only 28 & 38 hrs worth of Goo and mildew on the motors???
    The motor mounts were all slightly rusted and no marks of a wrench on them.
    I drove 21hrs and 990+ miles and just under $300 in expenses to see his junk yard of skis.
    Don't buy anything from Mike Miller.
    He's telling me he has a lot of export clients.
    I really feel sorry for them when they get there 28 hr 2012 Gti's.

    Pass the word about this dip stick.
    He sells x rentals and has no problems telling you a straight faced lie.

    Wow almost 300 skis for me and this adventure was the absolute worst.
