My 2013 FX HO Cruiser Deal and Experience
Found two 2013 FX Cruiser HO with a 2013 ComFab double trailer.
Skis are in mint condition. 10 hours on each.
Seller is asking $21,600 for whole thing
I have been looking at new 2015 yamahas because of the RIDE tech, but budget has keep me from going to the HO model of the Cruiser.
I see the 2013 have a "Neutral" on the Reverse Gate. How well does this really work?
Since these are non supercharged (something I did NOT want to mess with), I should get 60+ MPH and none of the headaches correct?
Take good care of it and they should last me forever.
Thoughts. Input? Thanks

"Beta", I find the neutral works great. The "Ride" sys. would be nice though. You should get +/- 63 mph after break-in. 64+ with the basic cheap / free mods. You'll appreciate the cruise, no-wake, & adjustable handlebar features. Good luck !!!

The owner of the skis is the owner of a Toyota/Ford dealership.
He agreed to 20K for the whole thing. Used skis, so no taxes. State of LA I just have to pay registration/tax on trailer.
I'm going to take the deal. Pretty excited.

The 2015s are supposedly nice with the handle bar reverse lever but at that price and hours, I'd take the deal too. 10 hours on new skis is the first oil and filter change. I'd ask if done and do it if not. Have fun with the new toys. I'm still waiting for all the ice to leave Lake Erie.

The dealerships service manager said they have been cared for and maintained by them there. Fresh batteries, etc.
I'll ask about oil change.
Should there be any warranty left on a 2013?

Very well could be warranty left. Owner should know. Where are you in Louisiana ?

Well I did it. Signed the papers today. Going to go pick them up on Thursday.
I live by Lake Charles. (westlake)
Coming your way to get the skis though. Slidell.
He is checking on the existing warranty for me. Will have all the service records and everything when I arrive.
Looks like they actually have just less than 10 hours on them. So break in period is not quite over?
What should I do to them first in yalls opinion? Go ahead and change oil and filter? Ride them gently a few more hours?

A car dealership maintaining skis is scary but congrats anyway! There Yamahas.
Bring them to Mudbug.
