    Good price on '08 15F from dealer?

    I am getting a FX HO soon, and also looking at a 2008 15F. I got a price of $8838.00 OTD for the ski, prep, taxes, registration, and a Karavan Trailer. Does this sound like a fair price? It is the Blue/White model. Thanks

    I'm seeing 7200 for new just the ski, so you'll have to do the math for the rest of the stuff...

    there was one on ebay for that much and I heard some guy from texas getting similar price from dealer...I think I paid that much for my 05...

    edit: oh yeah get the 15f by the way 100%

    I believe the ski is $7299, the trailer is $500, sales tax is about $500, and registration, prep, and freight is the other $500.

    Has the 15F cooling hose coming off issue been resolved or should I still double up on the hose clamps?

    i put 100hrs on my 15f before i ever heard of that problem. when i checked my hoses were still really tight on there. i still double clamped it just to be safe. i've never had any sort of problem w/ my 15f. its an 06. GET IT!

    Did you double clamp at the pump only or at the engine also? Spring or screw type clamps? Thanks!

    just at the pump, when they had the issue it was at the pump connection. i used the screw type clamp. i've had nothing but good luck with it. GREAT SKI

    They are a nice ski, the only thing I have ever seen go wrong with them since I was introduced to them in 2007, was the reverse shift lever. I am pretty sure it was the 15F, the mount for the lever is white metal and won't take much abuse. If you're easy on that lever and don't jam it into F&R you shouldn't have any problems...that ski should make you very happy.

    I'm really getting tempted into getting one of these... for the price they just seem too good to be true.

    I was really going to bite the bullet and get one of the RXT-X or RXP-X's or an Ultra 250 (a little worried about some of the problems they had last year)... but if I can save that much money and still have a ski to get to mid-high 60's and mod a little... I don't know if taht can be beat...

    what would you do?

    new 15F w/ trailer $8500
    RPM kit $1200
    other small mods $300
    thats a 68+mph ski
    TOTAL $10,000


    RXPX $13500 w/ trailer
    RXTX $14500 w/ trailer

    also w/ doos you have to run premium 91+ octane. with the 15f you can run regular 87 or 89 octane. you're going the same speed for $3500 less.
