    HX or GSX??

    Im looking at buying a 96 GSX 787 that needs a new piston for $950 or a 95 HX 720 that runs for $1400
    neither comes with a trailer

    which would be better? Im wanting something that will do about 60mph

    thanks

    GSX...

    the HX is smaller, with a smaller engine, and a BEYOTCH to ride...

    Thanks

    Neither will do near 60(stock) I have had 2 hx's, (95&96) They are a blast to ride ALONE!! The gsx will be more of a useable ski and will be a tad quicker than the hx.

    HX- very unstable when off throttle...cannot sit still without tipping over...impossible to ride 2 people and stay on top when trying to dock...very fun to ride...it leans like a streetbike turning...top speed 55,56,57 mph

    GSX- 110hp faster and more stable than HX- a real 2 seater- 57,58, mph
    GSX limited- 130hp- alot faster than HX- 61,62, 63 mph

    Stock HX runs around 44-48

    Stock GSX runs around 48-52

    They are NOT even close to 60MPH Skis.

    In what choppy waters are those speeds comming from? LOL

    more like 54-55 mph = GSX 1-2 mph slower than the xp800
    ?-? mph = HX but I know they are faster than the 720 xp which is around 51-52 mph.

    I get upper 60-61'ish on my limited but it's setup for sticking to the water.
