    2015 RXP X260 questions

    I currently own a 2014 Yamaha FZR and as you probably have heard Yamaha has had timing chains breaking,fortunately mine is still intact but.... I'm not in the mood to worry if it's going to take a crap every time I take it to the river. I do love the ski! The dealer I purchased it from also a Sea Doo dealer has a 2015 RXP X260 sitting on the showroom floor. They are reducing the prices of all 2015 PWCs after July 1st. I'm thinking to trade in the FZR. I'm more reliability loyal than brand loyal. Ok after that ramble... What bitches,gripes or complaints are there on the RXP X260s?

    I own 2014 RXPX! I'm at 164+ hours ,and it's been great so far. I had no major issues or problems. I am still on stock supercharger (no rebuilt yet)! I will send in my ski to dealer for rebuilt when I get close to 190hrs.

    Nice! The dealer said if I want to take it for a test ride they'd prep it. So tempted.

    The rxp260 don't have near the straight speeds you see out of an svho. They don't handle as good and they don't have near the ((cool)) technology as the Dash/ibr system of the doo which is why I bought 2 new doo's vs the Yamaha this year.

    I was also at a crossroad since we wanted 2 new skis. As much as I wanted an FX-SVHO, I ended up buying a GTX Limited 260 iS as well as an RXT-X 260. Even though Yamaha has reliability cornered overall, I just do not want to deal with broken chains right now.

    I do like the technology the SD has. I have a cryo treated chain on it way for the SVHO. My wife has a 2013 FZS with 60hrs,never one hiccup. It's been rock solid. Yamaha had/has their head up their ass when it came to the 14 and newer skis. I'm taking that RXP for a test ride Friday. Then I'll decide.

    Don't do it, you will not want to give it back.

    Agreed. When I rode my new GTX Limited, it was all over. I have 2 Seadoo's now.
