    I just recently purchased a 17' VXR and absolutely love it. I have a GP1800, so I knew what to expect with how the hull rides and handles. I've ridden the earlier model VXR/S, such as you have, and...

    I just sold one 2 weeks ago. When we arrived at the storage, the buyer insisted that we do a compression check cold. I told him the results were not going to be correct. The ski had sat for about...

    Engines can cut off, you might need to be more careful and maybe stay farther away from rocks. But yes, they can cut off on you. Happened to me several times; once on one of our old FX140's and it...

    If your stuck on the VX line, get the VXS or VXR with the 1.8 NA engine. Plenty fast out the crate and still some mod room for more.

    180 HP is correct. I've read the top speed of the FXHO is around 63-65 MPH stock. The VXR is around 66-68 MPH stock. The VXR will be the quicker and more aggressive handling of the two. The FXHO...
