    Might buy 06 RXP....newbie to site....hi all.

    This Sunday I am looking at an 06 RXP with 43 hours and no upgrades at all and trailer. Been garaged and has an xtended warranty through 6/2010. Is 8K too much and what other questions should I ask? Do you know of any recalls or known problems with this machine. Thanks in advance.
    I really want the RXP-X but cannot afford.

    Replace the SC clutch washers with metal ones. The ceramic ones are prone to failure and will harm the engine.

    Before you buy...check to see if the SC blades spin by hand.

    The price sounds good. Not Great, but good. Try to talk him down a little.

    Do the metal washers immediately. Does the ski have a trailer?

    RX951, thanks for all the sc info. Its a shame Bombardier did not address it. This one has an xtended warranty so will the dealer do the steel washers and ceramic bearings under warranty? Scary part is finding a dealer in Jax I would feel good about working on it.
