    Rxp 155 vs 215

    Thinking of buying first 4 stroke and wondering real world compare of 155 vs 215. How many hrs.are they good for ? I see a lot of the 215s for sale with 100 -200hrs. What kind of life do have left in them ? I know the gear head in me says supercharger,but looking for no headaches and i have 130 hp 2 strokes now and hit 50-75hrs a yr. Any years to stay away from ? thanks for any info you can give.

    I personally wouldn't buy a SC ski with 100+ hours but I also like to avoid headaches. If you're doing 50-75 hours a year that is some serious riding! Most models in the years at which you are looking have issues that vary per model. The best thing to do would be to narrow down what you think you want (to the year/model) so that we could help.

    Hate to say this I would rather have a well maintained ski with more hours. Than have a 4-5 year old trailer queen with low hours.

    That being said. 4-tec's like any other engine need maintenance. If you take care of them they can last a long time. So don't let hours scare you.

    If it has a motor or an ass. It's going to cost you to maintain it.

    the 155 rxp it's a crap,no vts....,so in my opinion riding this model it's a pain in the as,if you want a rxp buy the 215 model....it's just my opinion:thumbup:

    VTS alone is worth getting the 215, but plan to have to rebuild the SC'er
