Ultra 260 Reliability
I am looking at selling my 2011 VXR and buying another Ultra. I had a 250 that I put 150 trouble free hours on it and sold it. (still regret it) My questions is this I have found a very nice used 2009 Ultra 260 with 85 hours. Owner has taken great care of the machine and had supercharger fogged each year. What do I need to look for if I take a look at it? He is asking $8500 with a trailer. Or my other option would be a 2012 or 2013 left over 300x and buy a discounted brand new unit. Let your expert opinions be heard!

went to a 300x....Is it a 2013 New Unit with 0 Hours on it... What is the Price for it ?

Best quotes thus far:
2012 Ultra 300x $11,675.00 out the door
2013 Ultra 300x $12,900.00 out the door
Both are brand new.
Is there any negatives for a ski that has been in the crate that long?

300x for sure..
All it would take is 1 repair on a 260 in that price range and your at the cost of a brand new 300...
Get the max warranty and rip on!!!

While the 260 was a big improvement over the 250 the advancements to the 300 make this a no brainier. Just as wot stated get the 300 and the GTPP from Kawi and ride on.

Before you "put the ink" to that blank check - I recommend you read what this guy managed to negotiate for a left-over Kawasaki Ultra-300x with new Trailer, Tax, Tag, Title, Warranty....
Best Deal I have heard of - ever:
Good Luck !!!

Even the battery should still have separate unopened acid pack in a box.
Cosmetically - look for sign of paint damage especially on the hood which comes covered with a see-through protective film from factory and it gets permanently infused on to the hood if left sit for a long period of time in hot sun.
Just like others say, you MUST go for the 300X.
Not just more hp, but much more improvements overall, cyl head, exhaust, supercharger with builtin fogging port and automatic tensioner, etc.
