    Used SEA DOO GTS 130 STD 2011

    Hay there to everyone on this forum.
    I am new in PWC so I am thinking of buying my first PWC.
    After reading this forum my decision was to look after a non-SC pwc.
    I would use it 4 family vacation with my daugter and my girlfriend, skiing etc...
    So I need advice, I saw 2011 SEA DOO from 1st owner with full service history....what to look after, to be carefull?
    Sorry, my english is a little bit bad

    There are a few youtube's out there...





    I would ask if it's been used in saltwater; if yes, a more thorough inspection will be needed.

    I would also advise to take to a Seadoo dealer and have them inspect it.

    The GTS does not have the IBR or the rear boarding step; those are very nice features. If you could find a GTI SE in the same price range, I would go for that.

    Make absolutely sure you start it up and preferably ride it or at least connect a water hose to let it run a bit.

    If it has over 100 hours, ensure the 100 hour maintenance has been completed. If it's nearing 100, expect to have to pay for that service, which could easily be over $200 USD.

    If used in salt water and not properly flushed after every ride, it won't take long at all for corrosion to set in. I noticed there were no pictures of the engine bay...that's a bit suspicious.

    Crawl under it and check the condition of the drive shaft and impeller, sometimes those are forgotten items to flush.

    Just be extra vigilant looking for any signs of rust/corrosion.
