    99 GSX RFI. need opinions please.

    Sorry for making so many threads. the other 2 could be deleted if a MOD sees this. but anyways. I am looking around alot to find a good deal on a jet ski. I found a couple, one is a 98 GSX 951cc. Pretty sweet but its at a dealer and im going to pay around $4000 for it. Now yesterday i looked in the paper and found a 99 GSX RFI for sale, 785cc and for $3000 with trailer. Little under powered(i think?) compared to the other one, and its a 3 seater. My question i guess is, do you still think i will have fun with this one, it has under 100 hrs on it and is in really good shape. What should i do? thanks!!!

    GSX is a 2 seater, not a 3 seater...
    The RFI motor is reliable, but it really can't be modified...
    The 98 GSXL is a good ski, can be fast when modded, but I would suggest a 99 GSXL if you can find one...

    that is what i was going off. Claims to be a 3 seater. But anyways, its like 110hp to 130. And its alot cheaper.

    thats a GTX, not a GSX....2 different ski's...

    The GTX with the RFI motor is a good ski, a cruiser ski....

    The GSXL with the 951 is a FAST ski, performance ski....

    2 different hulls, 2 different riding styles...
