    2002 seadoo GTX DI

    Going to look at a 2002 seadoo gtx di. It has 130 hours and looks really clean. He said it runs well for about 5 to 10 mins then the overheat alarm goes off. What could be causing it and how much is it worth. He is asking $1000 with a diamond trailer. Thanks

    Could be sand in cooling lines, corrosion in the cooling ports of the head anything like that. It's worth 1k with a trailer. They are Nice when they are working right but can be a headache when they start having problems.

    Had a chance to go look at the ski and turns out it was a 951 Carb engine instead of di. Said his friend is a doctor and gave the ski to him. Said neither knew how to fix the problem and didn't want to deal with it. So how is the carb vs the di?

    Also he did let me run it and it sounded great. Had close to 130 compression in both holes as well

    I got it for 1000 hopefully I can figure out the overheat issue. Looks well cared for. What do y'all think

    I think you got a great deal. I would start by looking up in the jet pump with a flashlight. Excessive clearance can cause an overheat issue. If that looks good then take off cooling lines one at a time to blow through them each direction looking for blockages.
