    Pump shoe failed.

    Well, pulled ski for season and removed the grate just to check things and this is what I found. Over an inch of the front of the shoe is just gone. All the way back to the grate mounts even with the ride plate.
    This happened sometime this season as I put on the Riva grate in the spring. I did have a ride where i thought I had sucked up something, but it cleared.
    Only indication there was a slight issue was there was a slight vibration at WOT 80 mph.
    I think I'm lucky the entire thing didn't come apart at speed and toss me for a painfull ride.

    Luckly, the part is still avalible in "vintage" parts fron SeaDoo as is an 04 RXP. Looks like a fun job to replace (not)

    Pump shoe replacement is not difficult. You will need a heat gun, 2 ratchet straps, single edge razor blade, and acetone to remove old adhesive (gelcoat skis only). Note the position of any shims after removal of old shoe.

    Order new shims with the new pumpshoe as well as 5900 adhesive for the shoe and ride plate.

    That's the easy part.

    Use alignment tools to position new pumpshoe.

    Great info, thanks
    As it's really tight in the back of an 04 exp, pull the engine?

    Engine removal is not necessarily needed if you can reach the 4 bolts holding the shoe to the transome.
