    Cmon guys- Only 36 hrs left

    I need opinions now.
    I just rode a pwc for the first time last Sunday and now I am hooked. I have 3 boats but these little rockets are FUN!
    I have a chance to trade my Rhino for 2 pwc's and trailer. Please give advice.
    They are as follows.

    1999 Seadoo GSX Limited. Looks to be in very good shape. The good the bad and the ugly about this ski?

    The second one is a 1999 Yamaha XL 1200 LTD, it also looks to be in very goos shape.

    I will be testing them this Saturday , what should I expect and look for?
    Thank you for any information/ help that I can get.

    I did, 110 across the board. Maybe it was 120, not sure now but they were all the same. The other Seadoo gsx was 130 both cyls.

    I don't know much about the seadoo...

    The yama... Ask if it has Waveeater clips and couplers (you can see the couplers), and if it has a D-Plate installed or if the Catcon is still in there.


    Either way, you'll be doing the waveeater clips and installing a dplate (about $200 for both, if you do it).

    How many hours on it?

    Were the carbs ever rebuilt?


    They're great ski's. If you get 110+ on all three and it runs good, then you should be good to go.

    I'd keep the Rhino. The value of those two old skis is less than the Rhino. Buy a used GPR for about 4 grand and keep your Rhino and be happy

    It's a chinese rhino clone and I already traded. I love these things. More fun in one week than the dirt dobber in 8 months.
