Your X2 has the braces.......but the 2007's didn't originally come with those installed. The owner could go to their dealer and get them from Matercraft. Some dealers installed them for free, and some didn't. Without those braces, the tower shook quite a lot. That is why MC came out with the braces
How would one be able to look at an '07 X2 and be able to tell that the tower braces in fact, or not, installed? Is it obvious, or did MC make the mod look stock?

It's very obvious. They are installed in the top corners-one side of the brace attaches to the rear legs and the other to the top cross piece.



This thread has some good pictures:

Just wanted to say thanks for everyone's input. I ended up buying the boat mentioned.

Drove from Michigan to Arkansas and back in basically 48 hours, 2000 miles.

It downpoured all day in Arkansas so I was only able to do a mechanical inspection, plus compression test. Given the level of service of the boat and the care of it, I was ok with that. Its basically showroom condition!!

I wrapped the rub rail with saran wrap, put the stock cover on, and towed her home. Boat got wet on the inside, but not dirty.

I used a Chevy Express 2500 Van with the 6L gas engine, and it got an amazing 13.5 to 14.0 mpg towing it home at 65 mph. I was stunned.

Two pics of her on the way home:

Also,

To those with a 7 foot garage and a 06 X2... Fitting it in the garage on a single axle isn't even CLOSE. The rear of my tower was probably 10 inches too high. This thing would barely clear a 8 foot door.

That being said, I was able to remove the rear half of the tower very easily. Just removed the rear knobs and a buddy and I walked it off. It weighs maybe 100 lbs.

sounds like many knowledgable X2 owners, I am updating from my 2007 X2 with the MCX (we were happy with the power) and did not have an AA plate, we are now looking at 2010 to brand new X2's what are the differences, 10-11-12-13-14 and also my main question is what standard motor is in the 2011 X2 and is it enough power? compared to my MCX, more/less? thanks

Shavo- i believe that it was answered in the other thread but just in case the Standard motor in the 2011 is most likely the RPT-1 with 310 HP. The biggest difference between this and the MCX is at the higher end of the RPM range, not much difference in torque in the lower end range and wakeboarding speeds.
