    FXHO 2006 Engine mount?

    Hi all,

    I recently bought a jetski and have learned some lessons very quick. I had to replace the regulator and spark plugs already, no biggie. But now, I think I have broken the engine mount or something. I was checking to make sure the rpms were getting up, and hit a swell a little funny--nothing out of the ordinary though, if nothing had happened I wouldve thought it was normal... The engine didnt shut off, but would not thrust forward.. But it would still rev up and everything. So I turned the engine off and then back on. A thermometer image came up on the dash, so I figured something had gotten caught, so I let it cool down, rocked it a bit, and tried to start it. Still wouldnt move. So I opened her up, and immediately noticed the engine was tilted, the right side was much lower than the left. I have attached pictures so you can see.


    Anyone have any idea how much this may cost, and if there is any indication of further damage to the jet ski or anything? I'm a pretty handy guy, and if possible would like to fix myself, but don't want to create more issues, and am obviously willing to take it to the shop if necessary, jsut want to gather as much information as possible.

    I think the guy who owned it before me may have ridden it pretty roughly and done some wave jumping, which may explain this..


    Thanks in advance,

    check the coupler. where the engine attaches to the driveshaft. they usually get pretty bashed up when that happens

    should I order 4 of these to replace the mounts? I found this from another post, and people had good things to say, any thoughts?


    Is this something I could do myself, if the engine mounts just need to be replaced?


    If not how many hours of labor would this take?// does the engine need to come out? or jut tilted


    Thanks,
    Dan

    The coupler looks ok. When you change the mounts, make sure you keep an eye on the coupler so it's put back together right and don't let the 2 couplers touch each other or you'll get a bad vibration. They should be about 1/16 to 1/8 inch apart
