Motor is locked up! 04 RXP
I have a 2004 RXP
14/19 w/ anti cavitation cone
Was riding the ski, i heard almost what sounded like some sort of grinding sound, ski very quickly came to a halt and the motor shut down (matter of 2 or 3 seconds). Now when i try to start the ski, it just kind of clicks like it has a dead battery.
What I've checked:
Supercharger (pulled intake off and made sure the supercharger didnt spin)
Pump (Pulled pump and tried to start it)
Water Ingestion (pulled spark plugs to see if water came out when cranked; none)
valve cover (pulled valve cover off, everything looks to be in order - timing chain in place, no loose springs)
spark plugs (all have normal coloration)
What could be wrong? how much is this going to cost me? Anyone want to work on my ski in SE PA for $ and beer?

Remove your SC to see if it's locked down!
How many hours on the motor - charger??? What do the plugs look like... any damage to them???

Might have to pull the head off to check.
That would be my guess.

Pull your charger first! If it spins freely... then you have major problems Like Rick said... valves would be my next guess if your charger spins when removed However... if your plugs look good Keep us posted!

Probably the bearing from the sc.Or the clutch is broke.

Grinding sound is not good, but you never know...
I was flying across the lake last year and my RXT cut off on me like that and wouldn't start. I took it to the dealer expecting the worst, and after all that it turned out to be a fuse....
