    RXX ?

    Being an extreme NEWB could you all tell me about the RXX. I was at North Texas Yahama yesterday and the salesman says come check this out. I guess they got one on consignment. He new nothing about it yet as they just got it but he tells me that it was a limited release and you had to have a racing certificate or something like that to even buy one. My first question is what was the lever on the left throttle for? It looks like a break lever and I know it isn't but that is the best way to describe it.

    The RXX was SeaDoo's factory race ski only made in model year 2001, basically a boat that was all motor and stripped of unneeded items...Running twin pipes, a SKAT pump, and a few other toys...With simple enhancements, it was a true 70mph boat...

    When new you had to be a racer, or a race team, to obtain one....But now they are just trying to dump them...

    Only 300 were made, and they are FUN! If you can find one mint, or even in a crate, pick it up...They require a little more maintenance than a typical 2-stroke, but worth the time if you are a basic tuner...

    The lever on the left is actually the manual trim...

    I would argue that if you are a noob, and know little about the inner workings, avoid this ski at all costs. It is a tuners ski and is very high maintenance (much like my wife)
    get a 4-tec and live happily ever after.

    they are a fun ski... i recently picked one up... it had 0 hours on it, now has 10.7... in the process of changing the exaust gaskets though, they were bad after sittin for 6 years in the showroom. i gpsd it at 68.2 with a full tank of gas. it is very quick out of the hole and is a very light, fun ski on the water... here are some pics, how many hours are on the ski you found?

    You know I didn't look at the hours, sorry. I just bought two new skis and was just looking at it out of curiousity. I pulled the seat and it was very clean and all the pipes were anodized blue.
    So the clutch like lever on the handle bars is trim?

    Yea, manual trim...it works faster in closed-course racing...

    but they are maintenance QUEENS....beyotches at best.......but still worth it IF you can wrench....if you no wrench, stay away...
