    I can't vouch for the difference between the 215 and the 255 since I came from the GPRs, BUT, I LOVE THE X. With the deal I got, since it was a left over 08, it was basically 1K more than a left over GP1300R and worth every penny.
    I have 2 friends who just each bought the P-X and they came from the 2007 215s and they are tickled pink. Pull the trigger, you will not regret it.

    If you are going to leave it stock or only do a few upgrades than go for it. If you plan on building an 80+mph ski than you would be better of with the RXP.

    That right there is the reason why I would love to have an RXP-X. Throw on a couple bolt-ons and you have a reliable 75mph ski with a killer hole shot. 80mph on a RXP is cool and all, but it's a flat water ski and the $$$ and wrench time it takes to get there and maintain it starts to get a little steep for some people.

    I rode my P-X for the first time yesterday, and all i can say is WOW...the river was choppy as hell with 41degree water temps (no wetsuit just a sweater and board shorts), and i was EXTREMELY impressed. I love my purchase

    How fast if you just do mild mods to an X? Intake grate? Air intake? anything else? At what speed do they become unstable?

    I hit 75 with block offs, 4" air intake, and a cut stock grate. It was under 500 in parts, however a cut stock grate is very prone to overstuff a riva or R&D grate would be better.
    I have gone 80 on my X without an overstuff issue but others have had problems not going as fast. I would say 78-80 is about as fast as you want to go.
