    2005 rxt ????

    i have the opportunity to purchase a 2005 rxt for <= $7000 with a trailer and cover. The machine has 45 hours. The only problem is the ski has sunfading and some significant dock scraps. This leads me to wonder what kind of maintainance was performed on the machine. What do you guys think?

    Also I should add the lower hull was immaculate as well as just a little waterspotting on the engine. This machine has only been in fresh water.

    Fresh Water is a plus.
    You'll need to put metal washers in...ceramics may be okay. Ride it to verify. If gone I'd think twice.
    Check and change the oil and filter.
    Pull the pump and check for water in the pump bearing.
    Check wear ring and prop looking for grooves and wear.
    Pull hose off the throttle body and look in for water intrusion.

    I bought a used 04 that had been left tied to a dock during a storm. It got under the dock and had top damage but engine and drive train were fine. Made a great ski.
