    Looking at a 05 RXT.

    Hey guys.
    I have had yamaha GPR's for the last couple years, they've been real fun but I need something bigger. I've decided to bump up to the Seadoo RXT three seater.

    I am going to check out a 2005 RXT in about an hour from now.

    Is there anything I should be on the look-out for? Any problems that I should be aware of? Any recalls like on the 03 GPR's?

    Any thing at all?

    thanks guys.

    One thing you should look at, pull the supercharger intake boot and try to spin the impellar if it's spins don't buy. The #1 issue with the supercharged Seadoos is the ceramic washer in the supercharger.

    Thanks cbrich.

    Do you have any idea what the cost is to replace the supercharger?

    green or red?

    It don't matter.

    Like cbrich said...biggest thing to look for....check to see if you can spin the SC with your finger.

    If the SC's gone don't even think about it.

    ask for maintainance records and if any warranty repairs were done, check over the hull, usuall stuff, look inside and out and see if the ski was taken care of properly!
    check to see if any salt water corrosion beat anything up...PR...

    $7000.00 with 35 hours and no trailer. They go for $8500.00 with trailer here in the northwest. I'm very happy with the deal.
