    Stage 3 (05 rxp) buying questions

    I currently own a 2003 rxdi. And have found a 2005 rxp stage 3 with 140 hours for 6,300$ with trailer. Assuming everything is ok I have a few questions. I'm new to the 4-tec world so bare with me ...

    does the the price seem fair?

    what kind of maintnence and gas?

    he said it had everything but the computer? Top speed?

    how long do these motors last for?

    Anything to look for when buying this thing as far as problem areas?



    i apologize for all the questions just don't want to make a mistake

    As far as the price is concerned depending on the exact mods it has maybe however with it not having an ECU I cannot see how it's a stage 3 anyways. List all the mods on the ski that would help.

    Maintenence is fair and they will treat you great if you take care of them and don't mind wrenching a little. Plenty of good threads to show you how to do stuff on here and a lot of knowledgeble people for you. As far as gas these skis can be thirsty especially if you like to go WOT however I myself did not buy an rxp to worry about gas. If you are concerned with this maybe look at a spark.

    A true stage 3 should be around 77 easily dependent upon mods and what one considers a stage 3. You really need the ecu to wake these skis up.

    The motors are solid however with the pre 06 skis change out the exhaust valves and flywheel bolts. Just like with any motor keep up with it treat her good and it will treat you right. There are guys on here with over a couple hundred hours easily.

    The best thing to do before you buy is run a compression test, leak down test, and ride her through the rpm's and pay attention.

    best of luck.
