    My uncles FZS went 250 hours before the clutch went out....I think the Doos need re-build every 100 hours....both good skis...put a maptune on the GP and you will never look back... ride both if you can,
    or get one of each ! lol

    Yamaha. I have a couple of SHO's and a 2016 RXT-X. It has nice features and rides great in the chop. My buddies have older RXT-X's and they both have had recurring issues. The intercooler leaks causing issues with the throttle body. It also seems that the sensors are problematic. I have not had any issues with mine (yet) but I have less than 15 hours on it. My SHO's have always been trouble free. I would buy a new GP1800.

    SeaDoo's no longer have a rebuild schedule on the supercharger on 230 and 300 skis. The older ones have been at 200 hour schedule since 2012.

    I feel all of the newer skis are about equal.....and if you keep them close to stock ( maybe scom) and don't beat the crap out of them they will give you many hours of enjoyment...We had over 200 hrs all told on our Sea Doo's, now 55 hrs on our Yamaha never any problems, just regular maintenance...

    I am Yamaha guy but If your in salt water like I am the closed cooling system would be better. I have taken both my very low hour svhos a part and I am amazed of the salt build up. And i know how to flush and us salt away and blow air after the ski has dried all winter.
