    2011 RXTX have a problem.

    So I have this ski, 180hr the motor mount broke, caused a misalignment and wore carbon seal out, ski sank, but quick work saved it, got water out of cylinders, intake, intercooler and supercharger, sprayed everything down with XPS spray had ski running on trailer that night.

    Took ski in insurance claim to dealer, had new display installed, new IBR system installed, carbon seal fixed, motor mount replaced, Supercharger rebuild, ride plate replaced.

    Now the ski will not do more than 7500 rpm no engine or IBR codes/lights, dealer says I have a bent rod, I did not try turning over ski till plugs were removed, and intake to SC was removed, I don't believe this diagnosis.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Did it die when it was sinking? That probably when the rod bent sadly.
    Sure you don't have any boost leaks? Exhaust leaks?

    The Dealer should of replaced all three Motor Mounts., Not just the one that Broke. Regardless, Have this DEALER fix this Problem this Bent Rod happened when the Ski Sunk. Have you done a Compression test?

    So Yes, Your Dealer or the Insurance Co. Will Fix this, Since the Dealer Didn't found this Serious Issue. Most likely they'll Install a Rebuild Motor or If the Insurance thinks your ski It's Not Worth it, It'll be TOTALED. Good Luck

    More than likely they performed a boil out procedure and didnít measure compression at the end of the process, a bent rod should result in about 70-90 psi compression if not less.

    Middle cylinder has alittle more leak down than the other two I'm told, ends 20% and middle 26%. Buy back ski from insurance that totaled it for 1750......it runs okay and idles fine just won't go past 75-7600rpm.

    Should I tear into motor or look into another issue? It was down on RPM before the sinking event.

    Any ideas?
