    man there's so much, i know what im doing working on these and im not going into that but one a year ago the first one broke off the under piston oiler and melted #1 and the journal on the rod $1100 later its running using ALL seadoo parts,strech bolts etc and i built it at a dealer with a real trained service tech/mgr Ran eight easy hours until 3 weeks ago and spun a rod bearing........the other was last weekend.i bought it with a bad motor cheap. They put a new impeller in it and didn't torque the hell out of it as specified and then rode it,ran it hard,let off the gas at high speed and it backed off and shoved the crankshaft forward and ate the thrust "U" ring so i fixed it.It was running awsome smooth and at mid throttle BOOM...locked! found that the new OEM strech bolt rod cap broke in half and now the cases are all busted up,ruined and im just though with'm

    Sorry to hear this; sounds like you don't know how to repair them properly, or you have some really bad luck. By the way; good luck with Honda, they don't even make them anymore.

    Hey thanks for the tip, Oh you might want to concider something else too since SEADOO is afraid to sell the BEST extended warranty in Floreeedaaa? They cant even trust them to last either.Oh and they do still build them.And of course i expected some ass to question my mechanical skills as most do to everyone on any site forum but you won the trophy today jackweed

    Hmm, okay I guess you're an "expert" mechanic with a string of bad luck and a little problem with name calling. We have over 350 hours on our RXT's, they haven't been bullet proof by any means, but they certainly are not 4 Tech JUNK as you claim. Best wishes with the Honda, cupcake...

    350 hours each, love the RXT's.
    They are better than the Yamahas in many respects.
    He does have a point about the warranty in Florida, but SeaDoos are not 4 Tech junk.
