    Ultra 250x high hours?

    Looking at a used 2007 250x, and I have a few questions.

    Is 150 hours a lot for an Ultra 250x? New supercharger was installed, and all recalls have been dealer serviced. What should I look out for when inspecting besides the obvious? Should you even bother with an '07?

    Many Thanks

    See if you can get a service history . One thing I look for is corossion in the engine campartment and pump unit , etc. If some takes the time to clean and flush out that's certainly a plus ! Also deep scratches on the hull . Depending on the price it's a great ski ...

    Thanks!! I will def ask for ALL records. Besides oil, is there anywhere I can find a list of what should be done, and cross reference it with what was actually done? Maybe a manual service timeline...

    I don't know if you would be able to find out if these have been done or not but some main things for ultra 250 from service manual

    oil change every every 50 hrs (or every year)
    supercharger belt wear /damage/ every 25 hrs
    tension check
    supercharger oil level / refil every 50 hrs (or every year)
    check replace spark plugs every 25 hrs
    inspect /adjust valve clearance every 100 hrs
    inspect / replace coupling dampner every 100 hrs

    hope this helps

    +1. Most of the members here keep their ski's is pretty good shape! We all know the known issues, and keep the maintenence. If you can buy from a member here, that would be pretty cool.

    I bought my ski from a member, has been A+ for me.

    pull the cover on the supecharger belt it will tell you how diligent the person has been at maintaining it, it notorious for build up. also open the front hatch and look back up the steering column another good area. Pump bearings!!!!!!

    150 is not a lot of hours at all guys, I sold my 12F that had 344 and I assume its still going at 500+ hours. If you have to change your spark plugs every 25 hours then you need to get rid of the stock plugs, they can't handle the heat
