    I checked these out about two weeks ago. They seem to have been well maintained. Good luck with the deal. Ponyboy, where are you located?

    100 hours is when the SC on the RXP-X needed rebuild I believe. You may want to see if that has occurred. Others here can tell me if I'm off, but if I recall it was because of ceramic spacers that would fail and end up as FOD in the engine.

    Have the dealership plug them in and make sure nothing is wrong also. Sounds like a very good deal

    Looks like a very good deal.

    I'd go look them over. Ask if the superchargers have been rebuilt(good chance they won't know since they might have been used as a trade in on a car). Being the age and hours both should have them done if they haven't. Also won't hurt to do a compression test on them and visually check the wear rings and props. Also see if they'll let you test drive them that can tell you a lot.

    Offer 9000, the money saved will cover the rebuilt superchargers if you send them into Jerry. Either way a solid deal if they don't come down much. Even if you got them 9.5K and stuck $700 to 1K into each of them to get them in tip top shape you'd still be looking at good deal and hopefully years of trouble free riding.

    Speaking of SCs, I questioned him about whether or not they had been rebuilt/overhauled and he did not know because, as skylolow has stated, they were used as a trade-in on a car. FYI - They have been there for about 30 days, so that might work in your favor also.

    Skis do seem to sell cheaper down here, but that is still a good deal. My guess is you may get them for 9300-9500. The trailer alone is worth $900-$1000.

    Yeah somebody traded them in for a pontoon boat and the SC haven't been rebuilt so I'll get that done on both as soon as I get them. I'm picking them up tomorrow and everything else was in real good shape.. And @ shacho I live in Baldwin County Alabama. And I was thinking of doing a few upgrades to the 255 any suggestions
