Is the hose connection (to do oil change) on the rxt-x the black plastic tube to the right of the steering nozzle?
I followed the oil change directions and started the ski before attaching the hose however, it didnt seem like the ski was talking any of the water in when I reved to 4000 rpm.

Mine happens to be on the left side of the pump.
Why would you rev to 4K when on the hose?

Whoops. Guess I was in a hurry and misread the directions to shut off the hose before reving to 4k. Hope I didn't warp anything. Only did it for about 3 seconds.
Anyway it seems like when I do attach the hose it does nothing but leak out from under the steering nozzle. Is thing right?

thats what the hose is for. It will travel through the exhaust and the pump when running. Always remember to turn the the ski on first then the water. when finished turn the water off before you turn the ski off. If you let the water run without your ski running it can flood back into the motor. Other than that you did everything ok. Although you have to let your ski run longer than that to completely warm up.

So am I correct in using the black nozzle to the right of the steering nozzle.

I had the same issue. Sucked out 2 qts during the first change. That is all I could get out even after warming it up and doing the wot start at least 4 times. I added 3 new qts and now it looks like I have too much oil. I assume i did not get all the old oil out. When I did drain and checked the dipstick there was nothing on it. I'm bewildered. Cars are so much easier to work on.

You will NEVER get all the oil out for an oil change. There will always be at least one quart left. About a quart of oil is hidng in the PTO housing and you cant suck it out. You will only need about two quarts on a oil change.
