    Flywheel Removal

    Hi guys any info on here about removing the flywheel out of a 2005 RXT 215 s/c while the motor is still in the ski? Or is it just as easy to pull the motor to do it? I guess if I had a shop manual it would help. Thanks

    A lot easier to do it with the motor out of the ski.

    I changed the flywheel bolts with my engine still in the ski...
    you must put a block of wood under the engine to hold it up to remove the engine mount bracket.

    I did the same for my ski, but my back was hurting throughout the day! It just seems a lot easier to do it with the motor out of the ski.

    This is an RXT... not a RXP. I would pull the engine in your case!

    That is the irony of the RXT. Most people first assume, hey it's a much bigger ski, should have more room! They forget the RXP has the removable deck panel, whereas the RXT has the small top slot....

    Good point! I didn't notice that when reading...
    I would pull the engine for sure! Also remove the intake mani before starting the engine removal...

    Yep. I have a RXT, and I did it while the engine was still in the ski. It would be a lot easier to just remove the engine.

    You basically have to remove brackets (to get PTO cover off and tip motor up) from rear motor mounts so you might as well go all the way and remove the motor.
    I hate to work on my RXT anymore then I have too.

    whether you pull the engine or not you will need to realign the driveshaft.
