    Picked up another X2!

    So, a little over a year ago I sold a 94 X2. That ski had many mods including a 750 SP and ran excellent. However, I needed to pay some bills, so it went down the road. Anyway, from the day I sold that ski I missed having an X2. Also, I was down to one ski and have a two place stand up trailer so every time I looked at my trailer the empty bunk just made me sad! Fast forward to the other day: I was searching the Facebook marketplace and came across a "Sea-Doo." However, I could instantly tell by the the pic on the ad that it was an X2. Long story short, the guy got the ski with a utility trailer he bought and did not want the ski. I ended up haggling a bit, and bought what he said was a non-running Sea-Doo for $300!

    When I picked it up the ski was covered in dirt and grime so it had obviously been sitting awhile. It also had straight gas in it and is set-up for mixed gas already..wtf?! The motor would not turn when turning the coupler on the driveshaft by hand so I figured it was toast. However, for the price and the aftermarket parts it had on it I thought i'd buy it anyway. However, when I got it home I put a battery in it and it actually cranked. It also showed 200+ compression in each cylinder! At this point I began to get excited so I decided to throw some fresh pre-mixed fuel in, new spark plugs and try to fire her up. After sputtering a bit and pouring a little fuel directly in the carb it fired up and idled. It's far from new, but I now have another x2 and a good little winter project to work on. I'll post pics later and try to keep this thread updated with it's progress.

    What motor? 200+ is straight race gas territory. Don't run that pig on pump gas or you will have a fukked up motor. (assuming your gauge is accurate). Might want to check the crank, too. They start to get mad with that much compression, being 20+ years old.

    I'd also pull the plugs (or head) and take a look at the cylinders, seeing as it had straight (probably 89) gas in it.

    Its a 650. The head was a 25cc Ocean Pro and after I started it on the trailer that day I immediately pulled the it and sold it. I just picked up a mildly milled stocker that is showing 170ish..much more comfortable with that..if my $30 Amazon guage is even accurate.

    Thanks. I was reluctant to even make a thread about it because I figured an 87 X2 is nothing special, but I am glad others appreciate hearing ski score stories like I do

    Just got some new bars, grips and some white fabric to replace the ripped/cracked sections seen on the seat cover.
