    Life Expectancy of the RXP

    I am wondering how long this ski is going to last on average? 150 200 hours? I am hoping that the 4 tec is going to really improve this. With the old 2 strokes my experience has not been as good as i would like it to be. Also making engine mods does it improve it or hurt it.

    How many Hours do you have on your ski and have you had any problems besides the s/c clutch?

    Almost 90 hours in one summer.

    Absolutely nothing has happened to my ski, dependable as hell

    I think over 800-1000hrs you might need to have ur motor redone, pistons, rings, valves, etc!

    Over 125 hours on mine and im heavily modded.

    Compression is just like brand new and i burn no oil.

    I know of rental 4-Tec's with over 1000 hours on them.

    Ride more... worry less!!!

    The only engine I have owned that has taken more abuse than my RXP and kept running was my STXR. The actual engine of the RXP still seems very reliable to this point.
