    Guidance on Rxp or RXT

    I have another two options that im looking into. I've decided i want to get a supercharged ski to keep up with my buddies that have new 2016 skis. I have been in communication with two people, one is willing to sell me his 2004 RXP with 126 hours for $4000. the other is a 2005 RXT with 78 hours for $4,200. the only problem with the RXT is that it has a fault code for a GPS? or something like that, thats what the owner told me. both come with trailers and im looking to see which ski is more reliable, and worth having. i would normally have 2 people on it (Me and my Gf) so i think the RXT is something i should get. But im not sure how serous that fault code is. He said the dealer can clear it no problem, but im skeptical. Thank you!

    Just spoke to the seller of the 2005 RXT, he said the code came up 2 years ago when the battery died on his ski, the dealer says it just needs to be cleared. the code is P1517 - Compass out of range

    I could be wrong but I believe both those skis have the same 215 engine.
    Known issues of a catastrophic nature were the hollow stem exhaust valves that would
    break off and the ceramic washers in the supercharger.
    I have a 2005 RXT but changed out my valves and SC washers. Its a sweet machine.
    You need to ask about those two things.

    By the time you start getting into paying people to fix the common failures on that old thing you could have gotten something newer and much nicer . Valves and chargers on those skis are an issue . Don't buy either without doing a compression check . "pay me now or pay me later " applies imo

    Pass & buy 07 or newer RXT if you ride 2 up.
