Is one year better than another??
I know the 05 and 06 Sea Doo Sportster 150's had the option of the 215hp supercharged engine. Then in 07 the model changed to a Speedster 150 but the boat and engine were the same, they just stopped making the sportster line of boats.Do I have this correct??
Is there any big difference in one year over the other.
I found a pretty good deal on a 05 but am unsure if that year had more problems than another. Other than replacing the clutch washers to metal, is there anything elese I should know??

You are correct, the name changed, however it is the same boat, still available with the 155HP and the 215 SCIC.
What I was told when I bought my 05, and since then have seen, is that the 07 is basically the same. The changes I observed was that the 05 has analog guages where the 07 has digital guages.
The 05 has a "mesh" type material in the middle of the bottoms of seats, I presume for water to drain, however the 07 has a solid bottom to the seat.
I believe the power plant is the same, the 07 still has the ceramic washers, however the 07 may have different bearings and/or SC wheel, although I am not completely 100% sure. I am sure someone else will chime in.
I believe the stereo may be different in the two, I have heard some complaints about the 07. I have no complaints with the one in my 05, have always been able to hear it, even cruising along.
Hope this helps!
