Thread: Old XP's
01-03-2009, 04:09 PM #1
I see a lot of old XP's like the small ones from something like the 80's and 90's. I was just wondering why everyone likes them so much. I'm gonna assume it's because they're so small and light weight that they're pretty quick and great for jumping and slalom riding.

- Parts readily available
- Easy to work on
- Excellent Fun Factor

lightweight and a bigger motor...tons of fun...that and with a few mods you're right in...i had an old '90(i think) sp even though it had the 580cc it still was fun to ride...a great starter ski i think

You can actually pull it out of the water without needing an enormous wave to do it. I can pop mine out of the water just by shifting my weight.
The fun-factor far surpasses anything else about them.
I dont consider them to be reliable. They have lots of fuel and electrical issues.. but aside from that- the motors are reliable.
The X4 hull proves the expression 'they just dont make them like they used to'.

The 96XP was 428 pounds dry. Could be made very fast, and was one of the best handling skis with mods the PWC industry has ever seen.
