07 Ultra or 07 RXT
If you had 10 grand sitting in your pocket and had a choice of buying the 07 Ultra 250 or the 07 RXT which one would you buy?
Great rough water bike
Good Acceleration Ride Plate gives 69
Dry ride/decent rough handling
Easily modified to go over 70
Closed loop cooling (salt)
Gas in Oil problem
Washers blow up
I posted this on the Sea Doo side as well.
Help me decide..........

I get 60-70 miles for every 14-15 gallons. The gas reports I have seen on the RXT for a 69-70 mph boat look very comparale.The ride plate makes the ride much dryer. I have under $500 in mods and have done over 70. Most of the time I am 69+.
Gas in oil, its condensed blow by. I have two ultras and neither one has a real problem. One is over 60 hours the other has to be close to 50.

Niether, I would wait for the 08 SHO ( Yammi) and then make a decision.

I'm thinking RXT-X or RXP-X. If the accel is as advertised and a few parts can get them to 75 ish then that's what I'm buyin. The only question is which? The RXP looks uncomfortable with 2 people on it so I might just get the RXT-X. The SHO looks like a good looking and fun ski too! I think the other manufacturers (Seadoo, Yamaha) have taken a better way to scrubbing the speed and keeping them within the coast guards wishes. I think the big scoop grates and props are a much better way to appeal to the masses than a big heavy hull that creates a lot of drag to keep speed down. This way if you want to go to a less aggressive grate and better prop it frees up a ton of speed. After a year, the Kawi still struggles to break 70 with bolt ons. That's rediculous with 250+ HP. It is a great rough water ski but I don't race or ride in really rough water.
