    Ultra 250X Pros and cons

    IMO this is how I feel about the ski I just bought...

    Its a 08 Kawi 250X

    Pros...
    Its quick, GPS'd it today went 66mph slap full of gas and with a 230lb rider.
    It looks cool as hell. Blue, Black and just the right amount of chrome.
    The fact it has a super charger is cool.

    As far a pros thats it. This is my cons. I hate the way it rides. bow spray is way to much. its toooo heavy. at speed the ski pulls to one side. It feels very unstable, when i hit a boat wake it feels like im going over.

    Tell you the truth I do NOT like this ski at all! I waisted Money buying it and I wish I would have stuck with another Yamaha.

    Im sorry if it seems like im bashing Kawi cause Im not. I just dont like and feel like I waisted 10K.

    buy a new FZR or RXT IS. that are the perfect PWC for you.
    stay away from kawasaki, they still sucks! you will have only problems with it.

    I feel like my 08 250x is extremely stable. I don't think I could flip it if I tried. I think no matter what ski you buy there will be issues. You just have to enjoy it and if it breaks fix it. What made you choose the Kawi over the others???

    I was under the impression that the Ultra hull was quite stable......might have to rethink my future purchase

    I paid 10K out the door with a trailer and warranty. Kinda couldnt pass up the good deal. People were telling me that its a good ski. And it is but just not what I was looking for.

    The hull is stable, 2 of us can stand on 1 side and not have any problems. Its just high speed problems.

    I dont know if its cause the ski is so tall or what. I thought I was just use to the GPR so had a friend ride it and he said it feels different. Also i rode a friends 250X same year and it felt way different but still not very stable up top. Id hate to put money in to a ride plate if its still not going to make me happy.

    Gators........... Buy the FZS, Its sick!!! It feels perfect and make me want to go buy the FZR.

    Titan,
    I did check out the FZS as well as the SHO. nice skis for sure, but a quick question, my buddy has a 04 FX HO, talk about unstable feeling. It's like straddling a 55 gal drum in the water, has yamaha changed their hulls I hope?

    The 15 is what I was going to buy but they didnt have one and I like to think I got a pretty good deal on the ultra.

    I bought the ski for my girl and want her to be happy with it. If she liked it I wouldnt have posted anything about it. She rides my gpr and has no problems but when she gets on the ultra she says its hard to ride..

    IDK maybe im just venting but Im still not happy with the Ultra at all..

    The FZ is a new hull design I think
