    Found the housing I had, it was also somewhat salty with peeling paint. I popped it in the blast cabinet and cleaned it up. It's off an '08 RXTX 255. It busted a supercharger gear and dinged it up a...

    It's because there are hardly any 2 stroke riders at all on this forum, they are mostly on PWC Today. Yamaha 2 strokes are hands down the MOST reliable.....BUT, it's because they are relatively...

    The screen is covering the main water inlet inside the jet pump. You'll have to remove the steering and reduction nozzles off the pump to see it.

    These are pretty much all the same for any brand or model. The jet pump produces pressure/thrust. That pressure gets 'shoved' through a line and generally to the exhaust area first. From there it...

    That thing looks like a salty, never maintained, mess. I think I have a rear housing for an '08. I'd take $65 shipped for it. You'd have to swap all your guts over to it. You'll want to get a new...

    You can make a rod balancing fixture yourself, there are several videos online. You just need a small, accurate, digital scale. Those can be had off evilbay for around $20. How far off is it?

    Do a compression check too. It kind of sounds like the compression skips a cylinder while you're cranking on it.

    Usually, when a bearing 'spins' it ruins the rod. The rod gains some clearance and loses the ability to properly clamp onto the bearing.

    You can't buy the acc pump parts seperate, AND they don't come in the kit. Your carbs are Mikuni SBN 46i. I believe you'll find a Holley acc pump check valve to be the same part. Usually if one is...

    Yes, 110hp is correct. The '96xp bone stock on smooth water will do an honest 58mph GPS. The Rotax design with rotary valve definately makes more power per cc than the rest. It's also a power valve...

    I can believe that, SBT just goes out of their way to use horrific assembly practices. I just took a 951 Di apart and there is goop everywhere. It looks like they use the brush on stuff, which is...

    If you are riding in cold water you can install a 1/4 turn ball valve in the main line from the jet pump. You can get a PVC one cheap. This will allow you to regulate the flow rate to hold in some...

    If these are stock metal type gaskets, the black coating sort of 'melts' to the clean surfaces after a heat cycle. It wouldn't bother me at all with your low loss. If it makes you feel better you can...
