    Checking out a RXP for Purchase Without Riding???

    Ok, I know that there are risks associated with this, but given temps in my area it might not be practical. What checks can I do to make sure it is OK if I don't have the capability to ride the ski?

    1) Compression (easy)

    2) Spin SC wheel by hand?

    3) Check saved codes (SET)?

    4) Rev to get 8100?

    Other? How much risk would I be taking??????????

    How about some more details on the ski... year, hours, mods... ect...

    By looking at the over all visual condition of the ski will tell you alot about how it's been taken care of!!!

    Take it to the dealer and have them download on the buds. They'll be able to tell you how it was run since new.

    With a HIN a dealer can give you the warranty history.

    Dude by a wet suit, why would you buy anything blind? You could be very sorry. A dry suit if necessary, don't chance it unless you're getting a written warranty or it's your dad.

    And RXP can look great and have low hours and still have major issues. I was looking at one last year, less than 50 hours and looked great. But... Turned out it had a SCer washers failure then timing chain failure. The ski ran great after repairs, but I chicken out on that deal.

    Reving on the trailer without a load won't tell you anything about how the ski is going to perform in the water. And I agree about having a dealer check it out... Ron
