    RXP or FZR or 310R ?

    Been thinking of buying my first supercharged ski,Im not loyal to one brand as I already have a kaw,yam,and a sedoo. Of course I have read negative on all 3 especially the FZR. I dont want to start a brand war,but would like to hear some good reasons why one would be better money spent than the other.

    The determining factors would be what type of water do you usually ride in, and do plan to mod full out or just basic remove the limiters mods, or leave stock?

    Depends what you want to do. If you want to mod heavily, spend lotsa dough, go very fast, Sea Doo or Yamaha.
    If you want the best, IMO, box stock ski get a 310.
    As troyheb says water can play into that too. If you ride in the rough stuff the Kawi is king. On lakes/rivers Yamaha or Sea Doo is great. They will serve well on rough stuff too. Just not as well as the Kawasaki.
    All 3 brands are very good ski's. The Yamaha's seem to be having the most issues as of late. Sea Doo is offering a good warranty deal right now.
    Do get a manufacturers warranty, not 3rd party one.

    Well the Yamahas have had timing chains breaking, paint peeling and hose clamps not tighten properly. I'm thinking to trade in my 14 FZR in on a 2015 RXP.

    I was in the market for 2 new/newer skis and as much as I wanted (2) SVHO's, I just could not justify the paint and timing chain issues that are popping up more frequently. Although they would have likely been warrantied issues, I decided to give Seadoo another shot. I bought a 2013 Seadoo GTX Limited 260 and an RXT-X 260 and I still have a Yamaha GP1300R. So far, I love them.

    Here is a nice comparison from a guy who has just bought both the 310 and the FZR: http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=232676

    What about price between the 3. Does anyone know what each one sales for? And is there anything one needs before putting many hours on it? Been reading about supercharger washers and cam chains failing with very few hours.

    Yamaha and Seadoo are mid to high $14s. Kawaski $17s.

    the 17k is only the LX. a 310R would be 16 MSRP. A 310X MSRP is 15.
