    05' or 06' RXP ?

    I am trading in my 03' XP to the dealer. The price difference between an 05 and 06 is about $ 350. He says they have never had a problem with the supercharger clutch. They have 1 ski with 1100 hrs that belongs to the DNR that has never had a problem. Do I save the money towards mods or spend the money for the 06' with the new design supercharger clutch?

    It's too early to tell how the new '06 clutch assemblies will hold up. The RR unit was not bulletproof as I'm sure some members here can attest to.
    A lot may have to do with improper installation.

    For $350 go with the 06. The 05 will depreciate that much as soon as it leaves the show room floor.

    After just posting/reading a on another thread about the black gel scratchin' so easily..I'd opt for the '05 with the silver deck before having an all black ski. If both were black I'd get the '06 and start going to therapy to deal with all the scratches that will be going on it. ..I didn't take into consideration value or mechanical changes/improvements. Just can't stand all the scratches.

    In the UK, the 05 models come with a years free insurance. I understand this deal is being dropped for the 06 range.

    Makes a difference of around 500 here.

    I also think that you should take into consideration any discount you may get on an 05 ski. I just got my RXT around 800 off the standard 05 price...so I figured that, with the free insurance was a better deal than waiting for an 06.
