    Good Deal? Buying advice

    I'm driving across town tomorrow to look at a pair of 97 Yamaha's. One is a GP760 and the other is a wave venture 760. They have about 150 hrs a piece and come with a double trailer. Is $2500 a reasonable off season price?

    Anything specific I should look for on these Yamahas?

    I've wanted a pair of jetskis since before I was ten. Getting excited thinking of fulfilling that childhood dream!

    that is about 1000 less than what that package should sell for. Take a compression gauge and ck it out. Easy to do. Buy a gauge from autozone or anyone for 30 bux. You need less than 5% diff between cyls and about 150 psi for that engine i think.

    good luck!

    150psi in each hole is what you should be looking for on a stock motor.
    + or - 10% is allowable.

    Just the response I was looking for. Dav, you are d' man!

    This seems like a good watercraft forum. I'm sure I'll be here in the summer when things start to go wrong!

    I'll let you know how it goes and post pictures tomorrow if I buy the skis

    Thanks
