    Pump Bolt Upgrade

    I have a 2011 RXT-260. The ski has about 140 hours on it and it has been bulletproof. I am seeing posts referencing a pump bolt upgrade. I know it hasn't been done on mine.

    Can someone tell me what the issue is or direct me to some threads that fully explain it or has a DIY.

    Thanks,

    These allen cap head screws should be changed for hexagon head bolts
    I believe they were also a bit longer.
    Install with blue Loctite 243 and let dry overnight. Also don't start the ski on the trailer !!

    And they increased the torque of the jetpump bolts a little, 35 Nm
    This is from 2011 manual.

    I have three young kids, so with the wife it was a bit too tight on the 3 seater! Will be back, but boat for now.
