Looking at 2008 250x
ok guys I have my eye on a 250x 08 left over that my dealer is willing to do a killer deal on it... now coming from yamaha waverunner and there great reliability i was wondering if any 08 have major problems and I hate to spend the extra money and get a ski that will be bracking more often...Anyone can share some 250 experience so far? I know a lot about Yamaha engines but nothing about Kawasaki but hoping they are just as great and cant wait to get some more speed .Thanx sal.

Hi sounds like you got a good deal going. The kawa 4 stroke engines are reliable (derivative of the Kawa Ninja m/b engines. Just two words of caution a) keep the battery fully charged and dont apply throttle until engines starts and b) make certain that the supercharger in addition to the engine is fogged up for winterisation

The 08's are dialed in. The 07's had a couple of issues. It's hard to beat the value of an 07/08 ultra. I was going to trade up to the 260, but I got my 07 so cheap, I can't justify getting rid of it.

Unless they are giving the 08 away get a 260x. My opinion.

Thanks for the fast reply guys...yeah It is a good deal for the 08 ... they are not willing to budge much on the 260 yet.

get a 260. many many reasons, better acceleration and stronger pistons to name a few.

Love to get a 260x but we have to see what price difference I will get...The 250 i think I can do , not sure about the 260 yet..Also the 260x seems to be 140lbs havier with 10extra HP Now thats a heavy boat.
