    What's it worth? '06 stx-12f

    Hello ladies and gents! Need some help here. I own a 2006 Kawasaki STX-12F. Near the end of the season last year, I had a piston crack in the 4 cylinder. After some heavy research on here, I found this to be a fairly common issue with my year/model ski. From what I came up with, it was a predetination issue caused by the ECU, possibly??? Anyhow, a buddy and I took out the motor, started tearing down the top end to find the issue. Well when we made it to the pistons, it was obvious we found the issue. Luckily, my buddy is mechanically inclined, and he did not see any other issues or damage caused by the piston cracking. So, after we finally decided what needed to be fixed and replaced, I went on a shopping spree and bought all the new parts needed to reassemble this bad boy. Well the parts came, and then of course, my buddy and I got swapped to opposite shifts at work, and we no longer had time off together...needless to say, couldn't find anyone else that was familiar with jetski's to help take on this task, and charge little to nothing to help! So, after sitting on this thing for a year, I'm stuck with a jetski that doesn't run, takes up space, and I'm tired of looking at it. My ultimate question here, what would you fella's think this thing is worth? I'm sure there are plenty of you on here that could put this thing back together with your eyes closed, and in less than a days I'm open to offers as well!!! Cosmetically, I'd say the ski is in good shape, normal scratches and scrapes. It had 150 hours on it at the time of piston issue. Title in hand for the ski, trailer is in good shape.

    Motor is in a storage unit. If pictures are needed, might take a few days to get over there to snap a few.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated!
