    You know learning to ride a Kawasaki 440/550 stand up is an exhausting task even for a 14 year old, right?
    Riding a superjet is 200% easier. 200% more expensive too but far easier. + more power makes it easier,
    Early Kawasakis are all about technique & that takes seasons to begin to master. (& I say that as a 550 rider)

    Like I️ suggested on the first page of the post go with an X 2 put a 750 or 800 in that thing and you won’t want anything else

    Yeah I’m 16 and x2s are harder to get on when you fall especially stock ones but mine has a 750 rips me right out of the water and I’m 130 while stand up are easier to get on when you fall but a lot more intense and that’s a lot coming from me because I️ do cross country and wrestling

    Thats pretty much where I'm headed I suppose.

    Long process here... thanks all for hanging in there with great info and suggestions.
    It's harder than I thought to land on the right ride..

    Wait for a clean, stock ski, and pay a bit more than the ones that need "carb work". I have messed around with my 89 and finally have it reliable again after two seasons and a 750 swap. My wifes 91 only has an impeller and ride plate. Always ready when we go to the lake.

    In the midwest it takes a bit longer, but keep your eye on FB marketplace or CList.

    Money pit lol? These skis are pretty cheap to begin with and after years of playing with them I would recommend a complete tear down and refresh of every system considering their age your only as good as your maintenance no fun being stranded in lake happy riding
