    Spark stability comparsion....same as '98 GSX LTD? Way better the XP?

    Hey guys,

    I have a Spark on order and my buddy wants one too.

    He is 300lbs. He rode a 1998 GSX Ltd (951 carb) 2 seater. He is asking how the spark compares in regards to stability to his '98 GSX.

    He was tippy when stopped on my '96 XP, but was ok on the GSX.

    Can anyone comment on this for us?

    We would test ride one, but in WI they will be sold out before we can test ride one.

    Thanks.

    300 pounds is 3/4 of what the ski weighs... Haha

    Way more stable than an XP. Probably on par with a GSX

    Or wait till next year when the touring model comes out, it should have a slightly wider hull and a larger gas tank, mirrors, and some storage.

    Is this Touring model a sure thing, or a guess?

    I'm 240lb with 3up with no issues, still do 50MPH. I would say its as stable as a Seadoo RX or GTI LE RFI.
