    RXP Taking in Water - Open loop problem????

    hey guys,

    just need some help, new to the ski scene. I have an 04 rxp with an open loop cooling system. While riding today, the ski started to take in water heavily and started to sink. We towed it back to shore, put back on trailer etc and drained the water out. When i mean taking in water, i mean that the water nearly reached the top of the motor, so the engine bay was nearly full.

    Took it apart back at home, and found that the hose which goes from the oil cooler to the j-pipe has come out from the reducer nipple. Would this be the cause of taking in water? As i said at the start, new to the ski scene so not sure how everything works 100% at this stage

    What we suspect the problem originated from was that the ski was started in shallow water and possible took sand/rocks in. There was no problems in the first couple of rides prior to this happening.

    Any help will be very appreciated. I can provide as much information needed

    To help out i have added the modifications on the ski (all these were on there when the ski was bought):

    * Seadoo Centre A-kit R Supercharger wheel
    * Tuned 13/18 Skat Trak Stainless steel prop
    * Seadoo centre 4 inch K&n air intake
    * Custom exhaust with resonator bypass
    * Open loop cooling
    * Seadoo Centre fogging kit
    * Seadoo Centre drive shaft seal
    * Seadoo Centre Metal supercharge washers
    * Seadoo Centre Opas block offs
    * Worx sponsons
    * Worx intake grate
    * Pro taper handle bars with Seadoo Centre post
    * Riva finger throttle
    * Ride plate holes filled


    Thanks
    Kerim

    Do yourself a favor and install a Groco filter if you havent done so already.

    Sounds like the hose was the cause but I would check all the hoses and clamps
