    RXPX or Yamaha FZR/FZS????

    OK... My wife has a '08 Yamaha FX-SHO and I've waited all year to finally break down and by myself one so we can go ride together. I'm usually a very decisive person, but I've had the HARDEST time making a decision between the '08 RXPX & the '09 Yamaha FZR or FZS. I'm a big guy and therefore like the ride of the yamaha's as well as their new hull design, but I also like the speed and smaller size of the RXPX!!?? Anyone have any suggestions? Pros? Cons? Advice??

    I'm really sorry if there is already a similar post on this in the past. It's been a while since I've been on green hulk!! Thanks for any input! I'm hoping to buy a bike by this weekend!!!

    Get the rxpx if you want speed. The fzr is faster in the chop thats about it.

    +1 I personally rode the FZ and i've ridden a P-X before the holeshot is just as good if not better and the FZ is a much smoother ride in the chop.

    Ask yourself this, which one will be more enjoyable & comfortable for you to ride slow, cruise or fast? Get the one you will enjoy overall.

    If you want a huge 2 seater that is actualy a 3 seater buy the fzr and if you want a true 2 seater buy the x. Keep in mind that the fz's are bigger than the tx. These frickin things just keep getting bigger and bigger.

    Yeah not only does the FZ hook up better but even though it is bigger it handles like a smaller craft you almost forget you're on such a big bike.

    Test ride both if you can. That is the best way for you to make a decision.

    Here are a couple informative posts by mpower. The first one is a great review of both skis.

    Really? How so? The Yami's have had clutch issues, hulls caving in on the FZR, and it's a new ski so give it time to see how things hold up. So don't feed anyone that crap. They all have issues.
