    Talking New to forums and have a few questions about a RXP

    I am looking to get a rxp and the one I am looking at is located in Jacksonville FL and I am in Chattanooga tn. and the ski is a 04 with a few mods like wedge, opas block off, vts rod, ride plate, stock prop re pitched, intake pipe, exhaust restrictor is off. things of this nature and has 76 hours on it and also has extended warranty on it.. what all should I look for with buying this thing. I will run a compression test once I get down there. I dyno and tune high performance cars all day. and have had gsx ltd and built my 951 motor once it went south in the past but no experience with the 4 stroke s/c seadoos. if you could give me a few things to watch out for guy I would be great full.. mean while have been reading and will get back with my searches. but I am making a call to the bank in the morn and don't think I could skim through all these 100+ pages on the rxp in that time.

    thanks again guys.

    ask if it has ever been sunk, or full of water? Was it in salt water? How many clutches have been replaced? Type of oil used.....things of that nature......also ask if he still has the ceramic washers or if he replaced the SC with metal washers

    I will ask those questions.. and I would pick it up and not ship it as I would want to test ride. and I take it you know the one I am talking about.. and I can get it for 200 more than what the starting bid is.


    thanks for the fast response guys

    I highley doubt that if you were to ask him if its ever sunk and it actually did sink that he would be honest about it and say it has.
