I'm looking to buy a stand up jet ski in the 1990 to 2000 range and have a few choices in mind. If i do buy anything it will most likely be stock or with few modifications and a 650 or larger. The one thing i can't figure out though is which is better a kawi or a Yamaha. I've been looking into it for some time now and can't draw a conclusive answer other than, it seems to me that the Yamaha's are for tricks and freestyle and the kawi is for racing. I'm pretty sure im not into going blazing fast and more into tricks, but come on who doesn't like to go fast. Right now i have a 1991 superjet and love it, the maintenance it is easy and i have no problems ridding it, just looking for a new ski that and can't decide between the two big manufactures. Anything and everything would be appreciated because right now i'm stuck in the middle.
