Any machine no matter how well made will need to have
preventative maintenance done on it. It is also a fact that a
machine that has more than two moving parts will eventually
have a compnent fail and break down. As you probably know when
something breaks down then it can be quite expensive by the
time you get it out of the shop.
This is why many people do their own repairs and you can
save a lot of money by using used SeaDoo parts instead of
buying new. The advantage of buying used SeaDoo parts and
doing the repairs yourself is of course that you will save a
lot of money. Make sure that the part your replacing is not
safety related or something that can damage other components if
it fails though. If a part is safety related then you may be
better of buying new instead of used.
Buying used Seadoo parts is a great way to save money on
repairs or upgrades. Ebay is one of the safest places out there
to get these parts. The best thing about Ebay is the feedback
scores that they use for the sellers.
Before you buy a used Seadoo part then check out the sellers
feedback score. It is located in the top right corner of the
auction on Ebay. This score will give you a good idea of how
trustworthy the seller is and provides some transparency.
I always avoid sellers that have a feedback score of zero
because this means that they have a new account and have not
sold anything yet. I usually like to buy from people that have
sold multiple items already.
The next thing to look at is the percentage of positive
feedback. This lets you know how many people that have bought
from this seller were happy with the transaction. I look for
about 95% and above when I am buying something on Ebay.
