    You must have not been there recently, jet skis are huge down under and in South America, specifically Brazil , now they may not be parting them out, that's more an American thing fostered by our throwaway mentality.

    Hmmm....

    Sell a 750ss for $500 complete or sell the motor and electronics for $700

    Then there still is a pump, bulk head bearing, motor mounts, any aftermarket parts ect.

    Or buy a 750ss that needs a top end for $100 Then spend the money and time to rebuild, be in it for $800ish depending on my time and how much is really wrong with a 20+ year old machine and i would be lucky to get 1k if the outside was mint.


    Thats why i part out

    and basically throw all that money back into my skis for parts, gas, oil.... it helps, i just need to put the time into it.

    Hyosung quite obviously has a hard on for people parting out skis, yeah, yeah we get it now here it is from my perspective.

    I am in the business of keeping people skis running, sometimes to do that you need parts that are either no longer available or no longer made, that means used parts have to sourced, which can take a considerable amount of time , time is money in my business, time spent sourcing used parts is lost time, to me these guys are doing me a favor by parting skis out and listing the parts here and I spend less time looking for parts and more time putting skis back together, for me that's a a win win situation.

    I don't do the fb thing either so I have to get by on what Seadoo 2-stroke chatter is left on the forums. I sell aftermarket parts and people asking about them is where I see most of the questions that I find interesting anymore. Unlike the stereotypical "parts flipper" mentioned earlier, I actually save more skis then all the people buying parts from me put together. Were the hookers just a Black Friday thing or can I still get in on that?
