    Is there a differnet engine in the 04 FX HO and the 05 FX HO???????

    I am debating buying one of the two skis (04 or 05 FX HO), the seller of the 05 mentioned that they thought the 05 model had a new engine in it from the 04 model, but was not 100% sure if a change was made between the years.

    In the case they are different is one of the years better than the other?

    Any malfunctioning mechanical problems with either year that anyone knows of?

    Colorwise, I prefer the Blue/Yellow/White scheme of the 04

    Ammenity wise, I prefer the footwell mats that are ridged as opposed to flat and the fact that it is 1 model year newer for essentially the same cost ($7000 including trailer and accessories).

    Other than those items I do not see anydifference between the two.

    Anyone with an answer on the engine, cost, or possible defects would be greatly appreciated

    there is no real diference between the engines (maybe some small cosmetic stuff but i don;t think so)
    the hydro turf footwell mats are much beter than the 04 ones
    i have an 04 and i changed the mats night and day diference

    04 was the first year out and were 1mph slower (58mph) than the HOs that came after (59-60mph).
