    help identifying modle and value

    The info I have.

    1996 2 seat,
    800cc twin


    He wants $2000 with trailer. Is it worth it?
    Unknown hours but not many
    buckshot head
    engine set up by whamilton racing
    I have seen this ski a year ago in a storage and it looked like new. Previous owner stated it needs 100oct fuel.

    I wont have pics until next trip up north.

    It is probably either the xp or the gsx. Both came with the carbed 787 engine. Just different hulls.

    The current owner may have the info he gave me wrong. He has never used it and its sat in his storage for several years.

    Well most likely that is to much $$$, for even a great 96 800 twin in the best of condition ... should be under $1500 & should include a trailer IMO.

    I already offered him 1500 and he said he would let it sit He must think he has a classic that get more expensive with age and neglect.

    I'd like to see a pic of the ski. If it's just a normal ski with a couple stickers and bolt on parts then I agree it's not worth 2K. You never know what it is though, maybe he is justified. I would love some pics

    I only got a pic of the engine compartment, the pic of the ski is to blury. It is loaded, handelbars, throttle, cf hood, gauges, sponsons, skat impeller, buckshot head, makuni carbs....... Still not paying over a grand and i think he will take it in a week or two. It was properly stored and fogged in.

    96 XP with aftermarket head. Missing part of the exhaust. I wouldn't pay much for it. I would deff check the compression. The buckshot head is nice, but I see grey crap fuel lines I think
