    Default What is this????

    I picked up what I thought was an 1997 XP. The HIN# number says it's an 97 and the graphics say it's an XP. It has an 787 engine with RAV valves, but when I look up parts for a 97 XP it shows an engine without the RAVs and allot of other things are different. But if I look up an 98 XP Limited it shows the engine I have (787 with RAVs). So what do I have????? an late 97 model with an 98 engine. How do I identify this machine HIN, engine model#.

    Thanks

    I believe I have read about this before. from what I understand they used some of the old parts when transitioning into newer models. but I can be wrong. but this is what I have read from a long time pwc mechanic. hope this helps. Robin

    I think I answered my own question. I look on Ebay at 97 XPs and they do have the same engine I have. It was just hard to see what type of engine in the parts pictures that are online.

    Thanks for the help.

    1997 XPs are the only year with that hull style and a 787.

    In 1998 they changed to a 947 / 951 motor.

    Thanks. That is where I got confused. It needs a motor but the rest of the ski is in great shape, and comes with a 2002 single trailer for $500. Is it worth it?????

    The trailer is probably worth $250.00, and the you could get a engine from SBT swapped out for less than $800.00 if the old engine can be used as a core. Go to www.sbtontheweb.com for details, than decide.
