How many hours is too much?
How much hours is too much when looking to buy a RXP. I see an 04' RXP for $4800 with a trailer on ebay, but, it has 253 hours. I would do some little mods to it if I were to buy it, how many hours is too much, I would put like 100-150 hours a summer on it.

That is alot of hours...and it depends on rider and water conditions...proper care and such....
I have seen 04 and 05 RXPs with less than 100 hrs go in the $5500 range...
30 hrs of abuse can be much worse than 300 hrs of care...it is all relative
Some forum members have 200-300+ hrs on their machines and I expect them to get much more with the proper care they recieve...
Buy from a forum member if at all possible...MOST of us are very honest and 'in the know' on how the take care of these machines...
This is just my HUMBLE opinion...not a gospel of any sorts!

Take it for a ride, take it to a dealer and get it checked out. Give it a compression check. After all that, I would be willing to pay 4.5.
