    '02 ZXI 1100 buy at auction?

    I've got an opportunity to get an '02 ZXI 1100 at auction. Here's the deal:

    Ski is super clean but turned over slowly and then not at all. Battery is new. Jumpered solenoid with screwdriver and turned over and started great. Seems like a solenoid problem to me. This thing doesn't have a scratch on it. When they run these through the auction they start them up for 10-15 seconds and that's it. This one won't be able to be started but the auctioneer will tell them he thinks it's a solenoid problem. If I hadn't been there and seen it run I wouldn't bid much on his word so I don't think many other people will either.

    What are some pros/cons of this ski and what is the going price for a clean one with low hours that runs well>

    snag it for around $1000-$1500 and youll be safe, if its anything like my ultra 130di with the 1100 engine, its a great little ski!

    Well, didn't get the ski at the auction. Sold for $2100. The guy might have had a reserve so, who know, it might not have sold. Still looking for a second ski but really want to be patient and find the right one for a great deal. As far as two strokes go, any opinions on best bang for the buck??

    watch out for oil line failure on gpr (rear cylinder) they will seize and run again when cool,watch out compression on the kawa DI engines(two stroke )If they have old gas running thru them,they soft seize and if caught only way to tell is compression check.REad up on the problems of each model you like ,then when going to buy you keep eagle eye out for those known and obvious problems,PS unless you are mech. inclined stay away from supercharged seadoo 4 strokes!!>Marvin
