    Very little my guess would be vinyls(stickers) that is the most common change for a Doo between years.

    No differences at all. They might even title 08 leftovers to 09.

    thanks for that guys;
    i was sure they were bound to change one thing or another from the impeller or a hose inside the ski as they usually do!

    sorry but in europe in 2009 will be rxpxRS with only two differences:
    -new intake grate
    -maybe opas block off(to check).
    In usa due to the coast guard the limit is 70 mph and so no upgrade for rxpx.

    WOW interesting. Thanks for the info Dani

    I just read on the seadoo international site about the RXPX RS intake grate change. I wonder how they modified the intake area or if they are using a different grate.

    Y, como novedad para el año 2009 en todos los modelos RS, una nueva rejilla de entrada que reducirá la resistencia e incrementará la velocidad máxima en un promedio de 2,4 km/h.

    Translated:
    "And, like news for the year 2009 in all the model RS, a new grid of entrance that will reduce the resistance and will increase the maximum velocity in an average of 2.4 km/h. "

    2.4 km/hr is roughly 1.5 mph. That's not much of an improvement compared to the after market grates... Ron

    Very true, but the benifit I would like to know more about is how the intake is modded or if it's a different grate. Would love to know if this modification helps with the overstuff situation that our models currently suffer from now?

    Shibby notes here that there are indeed many new changes. Although not totally critical, they are worthwhile. Check them out and see if the 2008 vs 2009 price difference is worth it:

    BUT....if you do want an 09 like me, you can make sure it's not a re-badged 08 by simply looking for the rubber coated drive shaft (stronger carbon steel, but obviously rusts if exposed to water)....
