    looking for advice 96xp

    Are these compression numbers a little too high. He's the second owner since 2002 saying the ski is bone stock and never been rebuilt. He's only been out 2-3 times each summer.

    thanks

    Fogging oil in cylinders throwing off the reading?

    If you're gonna buy it id take your own gauge and read it yourself. He has a quality gauge but you never know if it's accurate. I have an xp with 48 hours on it and it reads just over 160 so I guess ~170 isn't impossible.

    +1 for a 20 year old ski, 120'ish around sounds good. If it's clean inside and the fuel lines are NOT grey it might be a good buy ??

    2-3 rides per year is WAY better than sitting for years.

    -when looking at used I always bring a flash light, a mirror and a fresh battery with me.

    I just took 1 in on trade. 66 hours and it too was 170 psi-- I was shocked and it was not from fogging oil-- stock, unmolested engine.

    I've seen compression numbers like that on many 787 engines. When a 787 is under 150 it has issues. $2000 is about right for a '96 XP in nice shape. They seem to hold on around that price year after year.
