'04/'05 era RXT Shaft
Looking to buy an RXT drive shaft that will work on the 215HP engine. I am doing a conversion of a GTX over to an RXP and will need the updated drive shaft.

Sammy, You are putting the RXP engine into the GTX, correct? You will need to verify, but I think any year RXT driveshaft will suffice.

FYI the 05 rxt gtx driveshafts are different than the new 06 up.
The 05 has a small diameter were the carbon ring sits. So you need the carbon ring and c clip from a 05 if you have a 05 shaft. If you have a 06 up then you need the carbon ring from a 06 up boat. Hope this helps.

Oh if anyone has just the metal ring for one of the above boats please let me know as I need one.

The thru hull diameter is smaller on the pre 06 RXT. The 05 RXT uses the same size bellow, carbon ring, c-clip and floating ring as the GTX,GTXL, GTX SC and some others. The only difference is the size of the drive shaft at the end were it fits into the impeller. If you try to put an 06 215/255/ 04 RXP bellow on the thru hull fitting of a 05 RXT 215 hull the diameter of the bellow is to big. Seadoo does some strange things.

You cannot use the 155 06 GTX drive shaft on the 05 RXT because of the end that fits into the impeller. You could use an impeller with the smaller diameter splines with the same pitch, then you could use the drive shaft. The lenghts are the same.

Wow,nice info here!!!!
I had the same problem a couple monthes ago,when I was on two 215 conversion GTXs!
I purchase two used shafts and the seller told me that they removed from 215 06 RXTs.When I receive them I saw that they are different.The first was the "big" one and the other the "small" one!
