    Price Check

    For most of you who know me, I am new to the Seadoo game, but not skis, so please excuse the newbie question.
    I found a clean 2006 RXP 215 with 25 hours on the ski and 3 hours on the motor. The 1st motor ate the sc washers and SD replaced the entire motor under warranty, seller claims new factory motor. The guy wants $6600 with galvanized trailer. I know this is less than NADA but with the motor issue and all, I am questioning this.
    How can I tell if it is a factory replacement motor or not and is the price in line with a new motor or not?
    PS, SD did give an extra year warranty which is up in July.

    look on the front of the motor just above the motor mount bracket... see if the serial plate is there or not...

    if it's missing... changes are it's a new engine in there (replacement engines under warranty do not come with new serial plates) ... and most dealers dont wind up re-attaching the old serial plate onto the new motor

    Cool.
    I'm going check it out on Saturday. What do you think about the price?
    I know the dealer offered them $4 on a trade in. I thought about throwing $5500 out there just to see. It's not like I need another freaken ski.

    doesn't hurt to offer that, the worst they could say is no! also if it isn't a replacement motor i would definately think about anyother options before purchasing...good luck kirk!!

    5500 sounds like a fair price.
