    Question Newbie help plz!! buying guidance. TX residents welcome

    Hello everyone Dominic Z here from DFw, TX.

    Im currently looking at buying a 1992 750sx for 450$
    details from owner

    "1992 SX750 starts and runs, needs some work to be finished and ready for the water, fresh engine, no title"
    "
    Ride plate installed, battery, kill switch, some weatherproof and connectors for the electrical box are broke"

    so so I guess main questions are
    1. Is it expensive to work on based on the information?
    2. What price range am I looking at if I need to buy those things^?
    3. And is it hard to get a title (for TX residents)?

    With all that dust, it's hard to believe that it's a "fresh" engine. The oil tank is still in place, maybe even still hooked up to the carburetor.

    I would assume you'll need $1K extra for an engine rebuild and any other needed miscellaneous parts.

    If you are not familiar with jetkis repairs, you are better off buying a running seaworthy ski, as in test ride before you buy.

    No Title is going to turn into a big hassle.

    Buy a ready to ride titled ski, either a 701 SuperJet or a Kawasaki 750+. You will have plenty of maintenance to do on a used running ski already.

    If it fires without issue and has good, even compression....go for it. Is it perfect, no. It would take time and money to make it perfect. This is a good entry level into the sport.

    Fix the electrics, dump the oil tank for pre-mix, compression and leak tests before you ride.

    If you are looking for a pay-and-go turn key, trouble free ma-chine this is not the one.

    Re: Newbie help plz!! buying guidance. TX residents welcome

    I'd definitely skip that 750sx. In Texas dealing with a lost title is difficult/expensive/impossible. More on the impossible side. I've been sitting on a really nice X2 for quite a while trying to work out the title on. I'll probably scrap it for parts.

    Connectors for the ebox are broken? That is a big red flag for a hack job somewhere during its life. I'm surprised it runs.

    A decent 750sx/sxi/sxi pro will run around $1500 in this area. Be patient and keep looking. Be prepared to miss this season of riding though. But you can ride year-round with some stay warm gear. Be vigilant on Craigslist for ski postings. They turn up all of the time. DFW is pretty active with the ski trade.
    Riding mostly Lake Austin

    1984 JS440 -- 1989 650sx -- 1991 X2 -- 1992 750sx -- 1995 900zxi (qty 2) -- 1995 X2
