It's not a job for a beginner to fix.
If they washers are gone its time to crack the cases open and clean and inspect everthing inside.
I've seen it done and its a lot of time and $$$$
I've had a pump bolt break before and caused a ski to pull.
Check the other bolts that hold it together also.
Batteries in Florida only last @ 2 years.

I think your the 1st to make that hull do 90+
I S skis really are amazing in rough waters..
You can ride all day and not feel beat up..
What ever you buy just make sure you get the max extended warranty..
If anything breaks on a I.S. ski it...
When you run it in the trailer make sure you hook it to a water hose.
No more than 2-3 min.
The carbon seal isn't being cooled unless your in the water.
Completely rebuild the s/c bearings and washers.
Then your good for the next 100hrs.
If the bearings or washers go out your looking at $2000+ in repairs.
DO NOT RIDE THEM TILL THE CHARGERS...

The thing is the washers are probably still good but that only 1/2 the possible issues.
The bearings in the s/c are probably needing a change.
My buddys rxp 215 just had the bearings go out and it...
The kit is fine to use its just way over priced..
Tiny is tweeking his unit ...
Everybody watch out...

I bet its been parted out and sunk to hide the theft...
Just my opinion....
I've never heard of a new ski with a supercharger with loose bearings.
I think your stealership had some loose bearings that :smt119needed tightening.....
West marine has a variety.
I've got the 6 qt model and its great for pumping anything..
Fuel, oil, water,
It's Detroit do you really think they left anything useable???

Ride your ski for 20-30 min and then check the oil.
It should be 1/2 way between the marks on the dip stick.
I've seen a lot of over filled skis....

Not worth modding a I S ski.
It's too heavy and too hard to work on.
If Riva recommended it then its good.
I use the Valveoline motorcycle oil but the skis that I use it in are not modded.
Welcome aboard the hulk.
Turbo hondas and salt water don't mix well.
The turbo needs a lot of maintaining when used in salt water.
The Honda turbo is big $$$$ to repair or replace.
Imo get a non turbo or naturally...

I've seen a lot worse condition shafts that once they are hit with a wire wheel come out perfect.
Reuse it and save the $$$ for other seadoo upgrades!!!
You guys do realize that the original post on this thread is from 2005....
I think you missed the rally by 7.5 years....

Long story short is that if you want to ride your ski more than maintaining it don't buy a kaw...
If you like checking everything all the time and replacing stuff then buy a kaw..

Wow that sucks...
Hope all is better now!!!!
It takes more than 1500 to make it run 80.
Without knowing what it needs to run its hard to say how much $$$ your going to spend.
I'd spend the cash and effort on a more powerful ski if instead of dumping $$$ into a vx.
Just my .02
