    Two questions about block off plates install

    I have two questions. On my 08 RXT-X I have a hose that goes into each of the cylinder supports. What do I do with these? What are they for?

    If you removed your opas on T-X then you need to remove both hoses and block it off.

    Where do you ride?
    I have ridden at Lake conchas and Lake sumner.

    The little hose on the right is what I am talking about. Where does it lead to? They were connected to the cylider supports on the opas rudders.



    Oh and the hose that tunnels through for the control arm elbow is a solid peice of silicone rubber, not plastic. wondering if I should just keep it in there as it runs all the way through and will not have leaks once the block off plates are installed.

    I ride at Elephant Butte. Ever been there?

    Woot 20 posts! Now I can bug the how to forums.

    that is the hose that supplies water under pump pressure. It raises the opas paddles at speed. IT is feed off the top of your pump and enters the top of hull above pump. I would remove all the guts and then plug the pump, and then seal off the elbow going into hull.

    Never ridden but been there in the summer.

    if the x is anything like the regular RXT you will also want to block the "T" fitting on the inside of the hull. on the RXT it is right on top of the pump tunnel. putting that nipple on the inlet that is normaly fed by the pump is not enough. i used heater hose to loop both sides of the t fitting together.

    Thats a good idea, to loop both hoses together. Wonder what size that hose is? 1/2" maybe? I have brass hose connectors at home that may fit.
    How much water pressure do those hoses put out?

    Just remove one hose from the T fitting at the top of the pump tunnel and then cut the other hose off 8" long and then loop it around to the other side of the T where you removed the hose. Clamp it down and you're done!

    That works too.
    Im sitting here at work browsing threads. Can't wait to rip into the ski again. It's my new hobby. My 02 Camaro SS took a back seat awhile agao when there was nothing left to mod on it anymore.
    I probably would have figured that loop thing once I got home.
