No 74 hours is actually low hours. It's the fuel injection componants that like to fail on these RFI or Di SeaDoos. if you have a deep pocket for repairs go for it. $2000 is a good price. Personally I'd go for a carbed 96 or 97 800 GSX. Safer bet.is 74 hours a lot of hours? this is all new to me, i bought a sled this year with 4500 miles , rode it another 200 and it blew up on me.. now i'm going threw putting piston, rings and a power valve.. i don't mind replacing piston and rings once in a while but if it is to major i'll send it to the shop.. i can get this jet ski for 2000, includes the trailer, cover, and 2 life jackets.. does that sound like a good deal? or not worth the head ache..
