    looking into a stand up

    okay so i am seriously thinking into getting a stand up just to play around on our lake, mianly to just ride and try to jump and maybe be able to do some tricks. it dosnt need to be fast but it needs to be able to move me (6'2 225lbs) i have no idea where to start or what to even look for on craigslist, also i dont want to spend more then 1500, so can anyone help guide me in the right direction with what model to look for and even what to look for when buying one so i dont get screwed over.

    thanks

    You would want a 750 SXi or SXi Pro. They are about 2-3K though. 650/550 in your price range. You may be able to find a 750 for 1500. But it may be u s e d for that much.
    Good luck.
    By the way 6' 200 lbs and I ride a 550.

    i agree 750sxi, the 650 is a bit under powered for how much the hull weighs and can porpoise like a bitch with a larger person riding it

    thanks everyone im looking at a 1995 750 sxi the description says this
    Hello i have a 1995 Kawasaki 750 SXI jetski, the ski is in good shape and runs perfect, compression in each cylinder in 155psi, jet ski has custom handlebar pole, quick steer plate, aftermarket boyseen reeds, and dual carb setup...also the ski has custom footholds and a D-cut ride plate, ski is winterized but will start for potential buyer, wont be disappointed buy it now before prices go up this summer

    compression sounds good, bring a gauge and ask to test it. definitely hear it run before you buy it. if its in good shape and runs like he described I'd say go for it. Sounds like a good deal

    i also found a super jet for sale
    "For sale a square nose superjet. It has a wrap on it and is in great condition. has bilge, 155psi in both holes, start right up and runs great"
    ive been reading and some say the super jets are more fun to ride?

    A super jet guy will say a super jet is more fun. A kawi guy will say a kawi is more fun. A sea doo guy may try and talk you into a 3d...lol
    They (SJ) are good ski's and fun.
    But I'm a kawi guy so I say 750.

    Get the superjet, I've ridden almost every standup there is and the SJ is much easier to ride than a Kawi, unless you can find an SXR 800. But you won't find one of those in your price range. Once you start riding a stand up, you will find yourself spending a whole lot less time sitting down.

    Come over to the dark side,,,,,,, It's fun.

    Never been on a square nose but with my experience on a round nose sj and a 750sxi, I'd say the sj is more fun.
