    Buying Ultra 250, What to look for?

    Hi,

    I am buying an 2007 Ultra250 with a little over 100 hours on it. Is there something I need to look for or something that is a common maintenance problem? I know the ultra150 needed a pump rebuild often, the rxp needed upgraded washers in the supercharger.

    Thanks!

    yep, pump bearings, engine thrust washers, s/c, cooling issues, no different to any other s/hand ski, some are cared for some arent. i dont envy you but im sure there are some good ones out there.

    From what i understand you will want to inspect that ski carefully I had a chance a few weeks ago to pick one with 85 hours on it for $2500 down here and even at that price I passed after talking to a few people on this forum.

    Look it over well. If it was maintained well u can expect lots of fun and reliable hours like I have. Expect to do the pump bearings and upgrade to the 300 set up. A few hundred buck. Did mine around 230 hours.

    Yea it was maintained well. I know the guy. But doesn't mean that problems can't arise.just doing some thinking. I have an ultra150 right now but looking for one my parents can ride and that is more reliable. May just buy a new rxp. But wanted to wait a year or so.
