    Question Totaled my 06 Seadoo RXP RIVA Stage II ????

    Hello everybody,

    Well long story short, I blew a connecting rod in my 2006 Seadoo RXP Riva stage 2. Somehow (likely due to water) the connecting rod weakened and finally blew out the side and into the starter.

    I've looked into replacement engines, but I would have to buy another broken motor to use as the core charge.. since mine has a hole in it, places like SBT likely wont take it nor do I want to invest the funds to do so. For now, ill be pulling the head to access the damage and determine what I'll be doing with her


    That all being said, has anybody heard of this problem? the ski ran great as far as I could tell. It always been in fresh water and well maintained. I just hit 200 hours and the RIVA kit was installed at 140 hours. Fluid levels, engine temps were all normal and routinely checked.
