    I would pull the spark plugs and crank it (with the throttle lever wide open) to see if any water comes out of the cylinders. If not, put the plugs back in and start it to ensure that it is running...

    I just put those snap in fenders on my GTR and they look like a well engineered piece. Drilling the holes in the rub rails was a bit difficult though.

    Did the customer mention that the ski was overheating? If the line to the cooler was split I would think the crankcase would not be getting an adequate amount of cooling water.

    I've decided to just put the ski away for the winter and hope that enough A/F flowed into the heat exchanger to prevent freezing. In the spring I plan to find a way to assess the flow rate of...

    I just browsed the official Sea-Doo website for the '22 models and I thought it was very hard to use. What I was looking for was a simple comparison function to put the GTX and RXT-X specs side by...
  6. Need tips from the pros-getting antifreeze through RFI heat exchanger

    I've owned this '98 GTX-RFI since new and have winterized it every year. Since I live in Minneapolis I fill the engine with a 60/40 mix of antifreeze but I'm having trouble getting it to flow...

    IMO you're over thinking this-the supercharger on the current Sea-Doos is not an issue to be concerned about. If you want an issue to worry about, focus on the infamous driveshaft seal:). The 230...

    It sounds like you're a very meticulous person! I don't think you can accurately value a ski right now because of the market conditions. I would bring it to a dealer and get the opinion of a...

    I'm baiting the Yamaha lovers but the Sea-Doo supercharger clutch is FAR more reliable than Yamaha's. It is a simple stack of friction washers-very few moving parts. Get the ski that has the...

    You're driving in granny mode :). On my supercharged Yamahas I burned about 6 gal/hr.

    The antics of the knuckle draggers amongst us never ceases to amaze me.

    I don't have a dog in this race but this dialogue is entertaining because the impeller is the most critical and difficult component to tune on a ski. In the 80's I was trying to prop my 200 HP...

    It sounds like the exhaust system if full of water so the engine is seeing a lot of back pressure. I would remove the water box (resonator) and empty it or try to siphon the water out. He's lucky...

    Unfortunately you picked one of the most problematic two cycle skis there is. The 951 engine in carbureted form was known to blow crankshafts and pistons and then to add fuel to the fire Sea-Doo put...

    Where did you get the idea that the oil needs to be changed at 10 HRS? The oil filter will trap all of the harmful filings. I change my oil before an extended layup but I don't see why it couldn't...

    Unfortunately, it sounds like your plug caps are worn and need to be replaced. In over 400 hours of use on my '17 RXT they have been replaced at least two times (under warranty). One thing that...

    Kevin- Thanks for this article-I store my skis in Fort Myers and use them infrequently so I am always concerned about fuel quality. I didn't know this product was available at dealers near my house.

    There's a reason I haven't performed this mod on my RXT-I look at how deep in the bilge it is and lose interest. The mod on the GTR went very well since the receptacle didn't rotate when I used a...

    My guess is that the tether is snagging on the check ball. It is an unnecessarily complicated design. I keep a spare plug in the trunk of my tow vehicle to replace a lost plug when the tether...

    I'm not versed on tuning this particular machine but I would listen to your gut-if it feels dangerous don't ride it. Your feeling reminded me of how my '99 Sea-Doo GSXL (that I nicknamed Satan)...

    Update and Conclusions
    The ski starts and runs great. I modified my starting procedure by holding the button down rather than releasing it immediately after the starter stalls. I don't like this...

    HaHa!!! Now you're talking apples to oranges:). I used to ride with a BRP factory regional rep back in the 90's and he said at the time the '98 GTX-RFI was the most reliable model they built. Mine...
