    New to the PWC world

    Hi, I have my eyes on two Yamaha XLT 1200 locally that are up for sale. One is 2005 original owner with 185 hours and the other one is 2001 with a complete motor repair. I really can't make up my mind to which is the best choice they are both selling for the same price. Please any comments will help me greatly.

    Your information is very vague. Without knowing all of the complete details on each ski, there is no way for anyone to give you solid advice.

    Unless the "complete motor repair" includes a receipt from a reputable dealer or repair shop showing all that was done along with a transferable warranty, it is worth about 2 cents.
    Block out 6 to 8 hours to read old posts here on the Hulk and learn how to thoroughly check out a used ski.
    Knowledge is power.

    don't start off with something more then 10 years old. Go buy a spark and have a blast.

    If you turn out not to get in as much time as you'd like, you can get some good money and a quick sale on a year old spark..not so much on a ten year old yammie.

    Thanks for the advice, will check old post. The guy selling the fully repaired 2001 does have paper work.

    Any ideas on how many hours to get out of a 2 cycle motor.

    figure approximately 200 hours between rebuilds on a two-stroke

    The 05 ski is at 185. I should keep away and look at the 01. Thanks for the tips
