    I have just raced an enduro on Saturday with jetworx pulley kit and came 3rd overall in a off shore race,, NO SHOs could come close to the Ultra's.
    With the right rider any Ultra is the ski of the rough water.

    ..

    both are awesome skis ive owned kawasaki and never had a problem i now own a fx sho and so far i like it supercharger wheel and light boltons you are low 70s on gps and for the size of the ski it feels very light and nimble.i think both skis are great lookin and the ultra eats the ruff water up.depending upon how u decide to mod it with a aftermarket ecu the sho really wakes up jerry (greenhulk) has been 83+mph on a fzr and a couple other in the 80mph range on sho.

    if it were me id get the sho, imo the 250/60's have very ugly hulls. I myself love the sho, esp the fzr

    Well I can tell you that I wouldnt trade mine for an SHO and I dont drive in the ocean. Our neighbor just got an 09 FX HO, now I know its not an SHO but the ultra rode alot better. The FX bounced me around almost as much as my GP1200R, almost.

    The seat on the FX is more comfy, its like sitting on a couch cushion its so soft. It wasnt really a fair comparison performance wise since it wasnt an SHO so really that doesnt matter. The FX has trim and more useful mirrors.

    I preferred the steering on the 250X, it felt heavier and I could feel it more, its kind of hard to explain.

    Both are nice skis, but Id pick the 250X again even with its thirsty nature.
