Their awesome machines the motor almost looks like it came out of a small foreign car it is so complicated,too many sensors and stuff wich have been the problems on a few of the other ones,one sensor you buy you have to buy the whole throotle body with it for 1700.They ride quite a bit wetter that the old ones too,nose is almost under water till you get on plane-sucks through no wake zones.The old yamaha two strokes are bullet proof but i would rather have a Sea-Doo hull like the old XP.

I have Sea Doo RXP's Riva stage two and Yamahas GP1300r.
The speed of the jet ski's is still no comparason to the power and speed of a powerboat

I agree, SeaDoo is the best by far ! I've had 8 over the years. Some for racing and some for pleasure. My favorite is the 96 HX model. It corners on rails ! Very easy to work on.
