    You're smart to ask questions BEFORE you put your money down. The first couple of questions I would ask are:
    1) Where can you get reliable service and what brands do they service?
    2) How much...

    How did the manatee make out? I am genuinely curious because I ride in the gulf and bays around Fort Myers and accidently hit one and felt guilty. You are very brave to take a GTI hulled ski to...

    There's no question that the ST-3 based RXT-X offers a lot of rider centric improvements over the previous S3 hulled skis. The main turn off for me is, as Team Bilford says above, the weakness of...

    I ride in salt water and flush with fresh water after every ride. I also spray the engine with a rust inhibitor before storage. In 300 engine hours I am seeing some corrosion but it doesn't affect...

    Why not use the LinQ fuel can? I use one on my '17 RXT since I do...
  7. Dolphin-Again, water should not be leaking from...

    Dolphin-Again, water should not be leaking from the carbon ring/sealing ring interface. There is some anomaly causing this and if a tech says it is normal it probably means they just don't know how...

    What happens when full throttle is applied from a standstill? Does the pump cavitate (slip) like air is being inducted? I am surprised there is that much engine movement under acceleration but...

    It takes a lot of patience to be a PWC owner of any brand. The carbon seal issue has been the one that has caused me a lot of frustration on my '17 RXT-260.

    I use several, depending on how faded or soiled the rail is. I like 303 aerospace protectant, Meguiar's Endurance tire shine, Wolfgang exterior trim sealant (on Autogeek.net), and Optimum Car Wax...

    That's my feeling too. I had my engine alignment set several times and my thru hull fitting set by my independent mechanic. I believe it is close since the wobble doesn't start until about 20 hours...

    It depends on how much you think you will drive it in the next two years. The pistons are a known risk and from what I've read there doesn't appear to be a pattern so there is no predicting if/when...
  13. Let us know if you are still seeing water in the...

    Let us know if you are still seeing water in the bilge. I doubt the wobble and wear on the carbon ring was significant enough to cause a leak but it would be easy to check. With the ski in flyboard...
  14. Thank you GTRD and Makesum wake! This solution...

    Thank you GTRD and Makesum wake! This solution makes sense to me. Each time I have had a carbon ring replaced on my '17 RXT there is no wobble until about 20 hours and it starts again. I believe...

    I've been trying to find a suitable cleaner myself. The bilge floor of my '17 RXT is permanently stained from the wear of several carbon rings. I've tried brake cleaner, many of the off the shelf...

    Since the design of the pump support system was changed from using the rideplate to using the transom this may be why the use of the adapter is no longer specified.
  17. This is exactly my thought and is the reason why...

    This is exactly my thought and is the reason why the failure of the c-clip makes no sense to me. See the reply from GTRD above-his theory, as I interpret it, is that wobble of the hat/carbon ring...
  18. This is the best information on this wobble issue...

    This is the best information on this wobble issue I have seen. I have been trying to eliminate premature carbon ring wear on my '17 RXT since it was new. I've been trying to understand the physics...

    This is a great review Kevin! I am partial to this craft (owning two of them) but I think they made a lot of beneficial improvements. The most significant is keeping the fiberglass construction for...

    I wouldn't blame the wobble for a leak-my '17 RXT carbon seal wobbles and I don't have a water leak. After having about 5 rings replaced on mine I have seen several failure modes. My driveshaft was...

    BRP would have warehouses full of used skis that couldn't be fixed if they gave them to all consumers who demanded them. The only action the company understands is a legal one-it's nothing personal....

    Answers:
    1) There is no such thing as normal with this shaft seal design. There are way too many variables. I finally had my tech re-position the thru hull fitting to try and reduce carbon ring...

    On my '15 STX-15F (which has the same engine) I've had pump bearings replaced twice in 140 hours. This is with salt water use over a three year period. I remove the pump cone every year or so to...

    I don't know-the ski operator was to the right of the other boat so "technically" he had the right of way. It looked like the ski operator had a severe case of tunnel vision.
