Looking to buy 2005 GTX Supercharged
Hello all, I am new to the SeaDoo forums, coming over from Polaris. I am looking at purchasing a 2005 GTX. It has about 90 hours on it. This will be my first time with a 4-stroke, as I have always had the 2-stroker (SLX780).
I have a few questions about reliability. I know SeaDoo has been out there for a number of years, and with proper maintenance, most of their equipment lasts. Are there any recurring problems with these machines? Or anything I can do initially to avoid costly repairs?
Any info would be great.

if that is ski is supercharged, check for the ceramic washers!! if it has had failure with the ceramics, the repair for the engine is very expensive

How in the world do you check for that? I downloaded the manual, so I will start reading. Is it fairly involved to change them? I will also check to see if someone posted thread on this topic...Thanks for the heads up. I picked it up last night and looks like a beast....

If your not sure your better off taking the SC out and sending it to Jerry and he will change out the washers and check for anything else wrong with the it at a great price and have it back really soon
