Tools needed are 12” extension for a 3/8 ratchet with a 12mm socket, a 10 mm wrench and a stubby flat head screwdriver.

First step is to pull your reverse lever to lower the rear bucket.

This allows access to the bilge siphon tubes at the top of the exit nozzle.
Use a stubby flat head screwdriver to aid in removing the tubes.
Return the reverse bucket back up once the tubes are removed.
Remove the 4 12mm bolts that secure the exit nozzle to the pump.

Turn steering to the left to allow easy access to the 10mm bolt
Remove the 10mm bolt that secures the steering cable to the steering nozzle.

Install Wedge

Reinstall the 4×12mm bolts securing the exit nozzle to the pump, be sure to use blue Loctite.

Reinstall the 10mm bolts securing the steering cable to the steering nozzle, be sure to use blue Loctite.
Once again lower the reverse bucket to gain access to the bilge siphon hoses and reinstall them.

The last part of installation is clean up and tell no one what you’ve done.
Total time of install was 10 min and a cost of $35 for a additional 1 to 1.5 MPH.

One of the cheapest mods I have found is this Pump Wedge.
This wedge will adjust the exit nozzle up some to allow the nose of the 250X to rise.

2 degree wedge availible at your local dealer.
Easy to install and can yield 1 to 1.5 mph. As the fuel level goes down the boat lifts more allowing the wedge to work better.
