185 hp 2004 model Seadoo
Looking at a 2004 185HP Seadoo at auction for a freind. Can you give me an idea of the problem areas on this on this model. He has a couple of 2007 model GTI's and has had a trouble free run. (He would like more power if the price is right). Unfortunately static inspection only.
Cheers and Thanks

Ceramic washers in the SC could have already failed or they are about to fail. Test ride the ski and make sure there are no Check Engine alarms or leaks. Make sure you get 7400-7600 rpms and 61-63 mph on the speedometer. If you have GPS, you willl get an accurate reading and see around 60 mph. IIRC the early 2004 skis also had a plastic pump which is prone to flexing. When the pump flexes, the wear ring wears out quickly and you loose speed. Look over the hull for spider cracks in the gelcoat and look for impact damage on the bottom of the hull.
Ok, I just saw the static inspection note. I would expect problems and offer no more than $1000 US... Ron
