    Question Complete newb about to spend $$$$$

    Hey everyone,

    Looking for some advice/help from you guys, as I am about to make my 1st seadoo purchase.

    As the title says, I'm a complete newb, but now that I live lakefront, it makes perfect sense to buy a seadoo and hit the water.

    Having said that, it so happens that a friend of mine is selling his seadoo. I spoke to him and I am about to make a move here but 1st ... I wanted to hear it from you ... the good, the bad, anything I should know about the following deal:

    2005 SEADOO RXP 215
    MODIFICATIONS: RIVA STAGE 3 KIT FOR SEADOO RXP -- ET140R SUPERCHARGER -- JIM'S MODIFIED CLOSED LOOP PLATE.

    $$$Price$$$

    Ok so WITH the above mods, he is asking for $9,000.
    WITHOUT the above mods, he is asking for $6,000.

    Now don't get me wrong, this is my friend, and there is certain trust there, but at the same time I want to hear unbiased advice.

    He does claim he got a new engine for it this year and paid $3,000 for it. Also claims the battery is new. ( I haven't found out how new yet ) He also let me know top speed on this is 85 miles ...

    These are all the details I can think of at the moment ...

    Any feedback here is appreciated before I make a purchase.

    Thanks for helping the newb !!!

    i think i would get all the work data in writing. i.e look at the reciepts, especially for the new motor. not that you shouldnt trust your friend, just to see it was all done by a reputable technician, time frame, and cost of all said mods.
    that being said, sounds a little steep to me, but new the ski was only 10,500. average retail is about 4500.00
