    How to change impellor on RXP-X

    I know it is a stupid question but my freind told me there is oil in the pump that needs changing when swapping impellors.Is this correct?
    I also want to fit a stainless steel wear ring , is this easy to do?

    I have changed impellors on my gp1200r and was wondering if it was a easy job as I could order the parts off Jerry.

    Yes. There is oil in the pump. You have to take the cone off the back of the pump to take the impeller off and will need to replace with new oil once you swapped out impellers. You have to take the cone off to be able to hold the pump shaft in a vice to remove the prop. Also, you need to service your pump quite often depending on your setup as the oil can burn up the bearings inside if you do not change the oil often. Pretty simple to do yourself though.

    No oil,there is grease in the pump.

    Just take the impeller off,and add some grease if needed,that's all.

    Seadoo does not put oil in the pumps anymore, dont know when they stopped, but they do not put oil in the pumps, just grease. You will need a impeller removal tool, which you can get in the online store, also a 12mm allen wrench to hold the impeller pump shaft.

    I have done everything you are going to do and it is easy. Just get the right prop tool and a 12mm allen and it's easy. To change the wear ring just put the pump in the freezer and the old ring will fall out.

    Make sure you get Marine grade grease.
