    X-Charger price question...

    So I'm thinking about running an X-charger for next summer. I was looking at the online store and had a question.

    Why is the X-charger complete more expensive then buying an X-Charger complete housing and then buying the 08 rebuild kit?

    The X-charger is $698 (http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...roducts_id=773)

    While the X-charger housing is $289 (http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...roducts_id=906)
    and the rebuild kit is $298 (http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...roducts_id=763)

    Am I missing something here? So I guess my question is, why is the complete X-charger $111 more?

    You would still need the X-Charger wheel

    i find it incredible how extremely reasonable the complete X charger assembly is compared to adding up all the parts individually... wouldn't typically expect an OEM part to be one of the cheapest bangs for the buck in the aftermarket arena.

    if u buy the whole thing complete you save $300 + bucks... imagine how cheap BRP really is getting these parts from their suppliers alot of time i like to speculate in my mind what does it literally cost seadoo to make one RXP-X from start to finish? they probably get complete engines for thousand bucks a pop or something

    I agree Shibby. It's an incredible value. I know when they first came out retail was $1125. When they dropped the price into the $700 range it blew my mind.

    Bombardier could cut the retail price of every single part by half and still be making the same or a higher margin than automobile manufacturers. Cutting the price of that SC by 35% is a good example of what they could do.

    Probably not a bad deal. I picked up a 50 hour X SC for $400 from a member upgrading to a 2Rude. Be patient and they will come. Post a WTB in the classifieds and see what kind of interest you get.

    I need to talk to my local dealer and see what kind of deal I can get first. I may buy the Rude for sale for $800.

    I also need to take into account that I will have to buy a RRFPR and 15/20 prop. That's another almost $700.
