    2013 RXP 260 X Intercooler failed leaks water

    I have a 2013 RXP 260 X with 31 hours and the factory intercooler leaks water. I was informed by a SeaDoo tech that SeaDoo would warranty these intercoolers because they had issues with leaking water. Is this warranty still in effect?

    If not is there an instruction on how to replace the intercooler on the 2013 model RXP 260?

    Yes the warranty has long expired. If you have a stock ski and you're just rec riding, I'd go back with OEM. Replacement should be easy, locate the IC, remove the two rubber straps, remove the two large hoses and the two small hoses, install new IC and reconnect all hoses.

    Sorry mate , I disagree with you .

    Why going Oem since they are prone to fail .

    You can have a fizzle for almost the same price or not a big difference with better performance and reliability .

    With Fizzle you will be fine for a really long time , better if used in conjuction of a water strainer kit that prevent that any debris can destroy your intercooler .

    Then Fizzle has got the same location with rubber straps and the same connection for the Oem hoses ...

    If you go with a Fizzle F1000 you may experience a lot of condensation getting into the air intake manifold... You may think its leaking as well but its not, just very efficient. I personally have to blow out the condensation before each ride and plenty of water comes out.. I think their XS or First generation may work and from my experience, very little condensation accumulates in it. Its also much more efficient then the OEM stock intercooler..

    Don't blow out the condensation. Any good intercooler will condensate and it's excellent for performance. Research water injection. Snow Performance water injection systems.

    You yourself a favor and install a Fizzle intercooler. Stock intercoolers are very prone to failing.
