    get a compression test first off. check the hours on the MPEM. does it come with a trailer? has the gas tank recall been done? has the fuel lines been changed? what does the bottom and wear ring look like? seems to be a bit high. check it on KBB. IF this thing is in perfect pristine condition with low hours and a good motor i would feel comfortable paying 1700 with a trailer...I paid 1300 for mine with an aluminum trailer and 100 hours on it. it also need a bit of work..post some pix!

    Make damn sure to water test it. If you have a gps handy take that with as well. If it doesn't do 56-58mph somethings wrong with it.

    I hope I never have to sell mine, no matter how many other skis I get, unless someone comes out with a true PWC like it...but the way these are getting bigger, I dont see it happening.
