    Smile 322hrs on my 185hp 2004??

    How many can I put on it? Is there a shop to send the motor to for a full upgraded rebuild when needed? Motor is all stock is there somethings I would want to change if I have it rebuilt?

    Why not do it yourself? Save the money on labor. At least the top end. You could take the block and crank to a shop get it cleaned up and Check tolerances.

    I have 360 plus on mine and it runs as good now as it did when new. Plan on running it till it goes bad. Then rebuilding it and going some more. the wife loves here ski. Would upgrade it to a 215 or more when the time comes.

    I have over 300 hrs on my 06 215 rxt and not planing on touching the motor till it blows. Rebuilt the sc but that's it beside oil changes and new plugs each year. Do a compression test and see first before you dump money into it

    Its running great just did not know how long it would go before a problem and if I was getting close would rather do rebuild in the winter down time. And yest I would take it apart myself but would leave the machine work to a shop and did not know who did good work on these engines? I will upgrade it to the xcharger and 42lb injector when the rebuild happens. I think there is a gear that needs changed out to run the x charger 260hp is that true?

    The flywheel gear needs to be replaced. Also the ecu is different I think.

    Either find a rxp ecu on here for 04-05 rxp. I'm running a Rotax racing 8500limit on my 185 right now.
