    should I up grade to a rxp-x?

    ok, I currently have 06 rxp, with a riva stage 1, rotax racing exhuast, riva pro block offs, and complete umi set up. Ski runs awsome, but I'm really considering up grading to a rxp x. I dont want to dump more money into my rxp, I figure with the x a stage one and exhuast would be plenty of power.

    Is there and changes from the 08-09 x models?

    No changes from 08-09. If money isn't an issue for you I say do it. You can find great deals on slightly used or leftover models. The X is not only faster but handles chop so much better. No just in terms of hookup but it is so much more planted in the rear that it doesn't seem to nose hunt as much and tracks much better over choppy water. Then there is the fact you can run 75 for a couple hundred dollars without touching the motor or your warranty. IMO it is hands down the best ski on the market.

    I contimplated the same decision last year. I had an 04 RXP with a stage 1 + greenwheel and a few other mods. Ski ran great and was sad to see it go. However once I got the X I was not regretting it. Then after adding a few simple mods (grate, intake, and 15/22r) I was already faster then my 04.
    So I say go for it dude. You will not regret it!

    hmm, sounds like it be worth it, might try and find a left over 08. I've bought all my parts off jerry, love his store and this website.

    sounds like its a worthy upgrade.

    You'll like the "X". That first holeshot is guaranteed to make you grin and your passenger scream.

    That's right - they come with metal washers. It would be expected that as they wear, they begin to slip. In a few cases they fracture... Ron
