    Unhappy Blown RXT Engine @ 84hrs Please HELP

    Well I was going for one last ride this weekend and not long after I launched and started down the lake and bam it blew up,blew the starter right off the motor and oil was everywhere,so im stumped on what I need to do next and wanted to come here for guidance..

    Where do I get a replacement engine and about how much do they cost? I have full coverage insurance but im pretty sure they wont cover this So any help or advice you guys could give me would greatly be appreciated.

    the engine most likely was hydrolocked once before in its life, the middle cylinder I bet was the one that went,
    when one of these engines throws a rod its cause it was hydrolocked and turned over with the water on the cylinder.

    best bet for you is to either get and sbt engine, or look out for someone parting a ski, I would say get an engine that came out off a ski, that has been built by ROTAX and not by SBT using chinese made parts.

    It wasnt ever sunk as I have been the only one that has rode the ski,I did notice that the coolant level was at the min line before I took off and didnt think anything of it. Insurance company said that any maintance issue will not be covered so unless I can come uo with something it gonna be outta pocket...

    maybe it was due to a valve dropping

    Sorry to hear this, what year is it? By the way, you should get a moderator to move this over to the PWC board so you can get some more input.

    I was wondering if the 255/260 X motor will bolt right in the place of the 215hp motor if I was able to find one?
