    2008 RXP 155 to 2008 RXPX 255 or 215 model

    What are peoples impressions of the 2008 RXPX 255? I currently own the 155 model and possibly looking into the 255 hp model. I've got to beleive its much faster and has great responsiveness when messing around. I find the 155 a little sluggish at times coming out of spins. How does the 255 respond? Also, would the 215 model be just as good?

    Used ex to ride with a guy who had a 155hp rxp when I had a 215 rxp and it's no comparrison at all.
    the p-x stock is a lot faster out the hole and stronger all round and hooks up better corners harder and obv is easier to get more out of having a lot of the goodies from the factory.
    seadoo wouldn't make a 255 version of a ski to be the same as a 215 hp one.

    Yeah I'm figuring the 215 and 255 would be more powerful, just wanted to know more about them from people who own them first hand. There's always the supercharger issue, but that can be fixed. I'm looking for a little more speed and aggressiveness when I want to let loose.

    Wow. 400+ hours. Never seen a machine with that many hours. That's impressive. This is my first 4-Tec engine and only had two strokes before. I knew the engines were pretty good, but never thought 400 hours was possible without engine rebuilds. I'm leaning towards getting one as I want the power and speed. Thanks for the input.

    220 hours on mine, 130comp on all 3 cyls still, running a et137+4 for 100 of those hours.

    keep up with the scheduled maintenance and the ski will keep up with your riding habit.
