2003 Yamaha XLT 1200 worth the buy?

So looking into buying a jet ski as I thought it would be a bit of fun for the missus and I, came across a 2003 Yamaha XLT 1200 for sale

85 hours

come with trailer and rego till 26 of july 2020

comes with a tube and rope to go with

He wants 5,500 aud for it, but gonna try get it for under 5.

Is there anything I need to look out for in terms of problems that can occur with this jet ski? First one Im buying so any help is appreciated, thanks!

The common problems i have seen out of these skis is the power valves dropping down into the cylinder and hitting the piston, and the oil injection system failing. I personally take off all oil injection systems on my 2 strokes and just mix the fuel myself. And for the power valve issue, wave eater makes these clips that sit over the pin that the power valve is connected with. Those clips keep the pin from wiggling out and dropping into the cylinder. That is the only bad things i have seen out of these skis. i personally really like them. The xlt1200 is a really good looking ski. I would try buying for 5.
