    2011 GTX 260 iS anything to look out for?

    A mate is taking a look at a previously owned 2011 GTX 260 iS. It's only done 15 hours (ocean riding). Anything you folks can recommend to look out for on these skis (apart from the obvious such as oil levels / colour, hull condition)?

    Also is the suspension system problematic?

    Cheers

    Adrian

    Im sill ironing out some issues with mine that I just bought. I think most of the codes it was throwing were causes by loose or none contacting fuses. I had to replace the voltage regulator though.

    Just viewed it, there was some pretty messy sealant around the ride plate and where you fit the flush hose water came out of a hole above it - my 215 GTX doesn't so this.

    Cool

    I S machines are generally great overall skis.
    Some 11 models had crappy drive shafts that are prone to breaking.
    No issues with suspension. I had over 165 hrs of wave jumping and all out wot running on my gtx I S and sold it for my tx 260.
    It's all in how you maintain your ski.
    With that low of hrs I'd pump the old fuel and run some fuel injection cleaner thru it.

    Rip on..

    you sold a suspension ski for a none suspension ski? What it like going in that direction? I went the other way.

    I like both.
    I just got a great deal on the tx and I like the ease of working on a non I S machine.

    This is the reason I will most likely not buy a suspension ski again.
