    RXP - Ride for 1 only? Possible addition to the fleet

    Looking at an RXP, is it only a single ski? If not, how do they ride and idle with 2 adults?

    Was looking at a GP1300R or XLT, but a local dealer has a nice used RXP- wish it was a T.

    Also, what's the reliability problem on the SC's? SC clutch?

    The RXP without question is more stable at idle with 2 people on it rather then a gpr. It's actually very stable with 2 people on it at idle

    $90 bucks makes the supercharger a whole lot more reliable

    they definitely are very stable and ride fine with two people / adults.. assuming both adults arent like 250 lbs EACH

    rough and wet

    if you want an offshore ocean hull that can haul arse across big chop, then the RXP isn't the machine

    Shibby,

    I take it it's worse than a GPR? I'm running mainly inland lakes with 1-3 ft chop. My XLL is a huge improvement over a Waveraider, but even that kind of chop is rought on the white whale.
    Is the RXP playful? Anything like the typical XP hulls? Assuming it's got to be a great jumper, with all that low end torque.

    Trying to get my XLL to stock speeds of the RXT on my lake, might be there this year. But, the RXP will go there and far beyond. Is the RXP really only good a smooth water boat then?

    not worse than a GPR and not much compares with your XP in handling. 1-3 feet is not what I'd consider rough however.

    After riding the RXP for the season it gets 5
    This is the thought as it accelerates

    The RE's made the difference and now prefer the RXP over the XLL
