    The SHO model has a supercharger not a turbo. I have never rode on one but from what I have gathered on here they are very reliable skis. On top of that they love to be modded and respond very good to simple mods. I would say hop on it if the price is right. I plan on buying a SHO and a HO next spring based on all of the positive feedback I have gathered on them.

    jump on it if the price is right, good craft only thing is if he has not done it u will want to order the pump tunnel reinforcement and have it installed because there has been several SHO's that have ended up with that area cracking and it is more difficult to repair after. you can do a search on here and look for COCO 305 is who fabricated them, cost abt $150.00 and well worth it , everyone who has ordered and installed it has not had any problems with that area

    I bought my 08 SHO Cruiser used with 39 hrs on it for $8500 which included the YES warranty and a trailer and I don’t regret it for one minute.

    If you decide to buy it you should have it checked out by a local Yamaha dealer prior to purchasing. Dealers usually charge in the neighborhood of 100 bucks for this service.
