I had a seadoo rxp. I put the stage 3 riva kit on it. it was fun and fast as hell. I bought it with 10 hours on it and sold it with 300 hours on it. Seadoo is a real good choice. I got gps on mine going 85mph
we have 2 sea doo gtxdi's and theyve been relativley reliable. there like a boat though maintinence is everything. ive heard good things about hondas too though. i rode one of those supercharged sea doo's and man they get doowwnn. its almost scary when you get up full speed.
i have a 2000 seadoo gtx special edition, its the 2 stroke model. i have stayed right next to or infront of all the new ones that i have race it runssss...and it is pretty reliable, but you have to stay caught up on the maintance
my family has had 6 sea doos through out the years starting in 92 im pretty sure. we now have a 02 xp and a 02 gtx they both have 70+ hours or so since we are always out skiing they arent ridden much. but they are pretty fun. sea doo is the only way to go the others feel like your on a boat hardly get wet are heavy and hard to whip around. the yamahas are nice for towing skiers or what ever you want to tow, but again they are heavy and not nearly as much fun to ride.
Seadoo is the best period...I just sold my 04 RXP for 5500 bucks with a two place trailer and had it since new. You can get a ton of hours out of the motors just take care of it. And like someone else said make sure you put the metal washers in the supercharger before the ceramics blow apart. The rxp or rxp-x are the fastest, most stable pwc out there.
Keep it coming guys. I will be using mine down at the beach so alot of salt water. I have been told that sea doo is the best for salt water do to the special coming system that they use so no salt water gets into the engine. Has anyone heard of this?
The seadoo Rxp and Rxt's are good in the ocean b/c they are intercooled (they use antifreeze like cars). The only thing the saltwater see's pumped through the jet drive not the motor like most boats and jet skis that are water cooled.
I used to have a gp 1200 they will flip around on a dime, they are light and really fun.. when they run right. 3 carbs and two stroke ment they were fast, but tempermental when they were not perfectly tuned. Also you have to worry about two stroke oil, and they are veryyy loud. Just some food for thought
