    07 seadoo gone ! Looking for 2010 rxtx or newer

    Greetings everyone. I sold my 2007 rxt with 120 problem free hours. i bought it 4 years ago for 8500$ and sold it for 6500$. Thought it was a good deal and didn't want to loose any more money. I usually take long rides on open sea and a new hull is what I am looking for. So..RXTX 260 is the way to go. I found a 2010 rxtx but I am confused about the things I should check about this year's model.. I have read different posts but I am confused. What are the known issues for this model? Carbon seal? Intercooler? Pump shoe boltto the ride plate? Should I go for it or pass for a newer model? Or I shouldn't sell my rxt? Haha

    09/10 had bad carbon steel plastic coated driveshafts that strip on impellar end and also can strip the impellar, need to upgrade to the older c clip shafts, will cost about 600 for oem parts.

    on the pump shoe bolts you need the new updated bolts that have scotchgrip and let them sit for 24hrs before you put it in the water

    Jesus H Christ that's a laundry list of engineering failures.

    deal?ive heard a few driveshaft issues and the pump on plate problems.

    I'd personally stay away from any T-X older than a 2012! Other than shitty factory IC's.... 2012 and up are issue free.

    Sold my '07 RXT last month and bought a '13 RXT-X 260 leftover for 12,500... I now have almost 6hrs on it and I'm loving every minute!
    TOTALLY different animal than the '07 RXT 215.. especially in the chop.
