    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...
  3. 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...

    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.
  7. 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...

    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...

    My understanding is that this adapter is mounted in the bellow during the alignment process. The...

    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.

    My '17 RXT-260 was towed last month and I was concerned about water getting in the engine. I didn't have a clamp and the even if I did I wouldn't have known where to apply it. My owner's manual...

    I've gone through about 5 carbon rings on my '17 RXT and the failure mode was a little different for each failure. If the c-clip that holds the seal (AKA top hat) in place wears or falls out, water...

    I've been using these for years and one of the big benefits is the interchangeable lenses. I have three different shades for varying lighting conditions. I sometimes get watering of my eyes which I...

    Nope-not simple at all. The jet pump has to be pulled, and if it is out of alignment the engine mounts need to be loosened and shimmed.

    I hope your thru hull fitting is straight in the hull. I've had my carbon seal fail many times and it wasn't until I had the thru hull fitting re-set that I saw an improvement in the life of the...

    I use the Linq fuel container on my RXT-260 and it eliminated my anxiety about running out of fuel. The fuel gage, as you know, alerts when there is still about 5 gallons remaining. I continue to...

    I would ask a more fundamental question and that is "why do you need a catch can at all?". Let the flaming begin.

    Why don't you swap the Riva grate with the R+D one that you're running on the other ski and see if the performance characteristics change?

    HaHa! They won't help if the impeller shaft snaps in two and the impeller bores windows in the tunnel. Yes, I have bad luck. A VHF radio and towing insurance is what I settled on.

    A carbon seal CAN fail without warning and can sink the ski. This design is what keeps Sea-Doo owners up at night. Before I go out in the ocean with mine I review in my mind what my response will...
