2008 vs 2009 RXT-X
What is the difference between these ski's.
The only thing I think is the hinged seat on the 2009 or does the 2008 have a hinged seat too.
I have the option to buy a 2008 or 2009 model. The 2009 is only $1,000 more than the 2008.
I am wondering which would be the better deal and the differences between the 2008 vs 2009.

Mechaniccaly both of them are the same. The only difference is in the intake grate. The 2009 models RXP-X and RXT-X in the back it says RS which means that they have an improved intake grate. which is more or less like the RIVA one. So basically if you take the 2008 RXT-X and you put a Riva intake grate its the same as 2009 RXT-X. But i dont know if this is the case only for Europe and not for US.

I'd take the 08 and use the saved $1k for more "go fast" parts The ski's are identicle... even the color scheme

The 2009 won't depreciate as fast as the 08. The 08's have already lost 4k in value.

The drive system is different. The pump, prop and driveshaft are not interchangeable.

New fuel rail assembly, oil filter cover, new supercharger drive gear, new supercharger formed hose, exhaust outlet and rideplate screws.
