    Used 07 Rxp, is it worth the savings?

    Hey guys, I asked about the 3d's a few weeks ago, but I never found a deal I could bite on. So, I've been looking at the Rxp's also (wish I had gotten the 2004 for 6500 I found).

    Anyway, I've found a 2007 RXP 215hp with 15 hours on it for $9000 (no trailer). Now my question is, is it worth the savings to bite on it? how much does a new one typically run after freight and prep and all that extra stuff? Also, the guy says he has a older trailer he would sell me for $350. If I did get it, is it still in the breakin period? Or should I ask if it's had it's first service or something?

    Should I still try to get a leftover 2006? or would the 2007 used be ok since it would still be under warranty?
    Finally, I've seen lots advertised with the BEST warranty? Is this a warranty I could add to the 2007 used?

    Thanks for any help.

    P.S. sorry for the scatterbrained questions, it's late...

    My cuzz got his 07 Red Ranger RXP for 11,200 OTD, no trailer 2 months ago.
    9K is good if it's in Mint condition. Offer 9000-9200 with trailer. Absolutly check for the 10 oil change/checkup & get those metal washers installed!

    I'll tell you what, My cousin's rxp is stock except a riva grate & a PPG power pipe with 10 hrs on the ski & he keeps up out of the hole to mid range with my stage 2 rxp. After that the STG 2 power takes over.

    I'd nab the 07 over the 06. You get a 1 yr warranty & can buy another yr or 2.

    Yeah, already asked that, he said that he bought 2 of them (one for him and one for his fiancee), but now they decided just to keep one of them.

    can you check records for ceramic washer failure? See if that is why he is selling it?

    yea, if theres nothing wrong with it, its a good deal, but i would be skeptical. I paid 10245 for my 07 rxp ski brand new last week.

    Are those first 14 hours worth $1300?

    Buy new and you will know what happened in those first 14 hours... it's not enough savings to trump the new machine. My 2 cents...

    Anyways, it does look like a good deal, but I think I've found a Trailblazer SS that I'm going to buy now, so it looks like I'll wait a bit to get a jet ski. Thanks for the help guys.

    Edit: oops, didn't notice it was PWCToday. The colors looked like this site when I first clicked on it.
