    Hi , my 08 RXP-X stopped when I was last on it , 12 V low came on then it just ran a little then stopped.My son had to tow me back to the launch ramp with his Hydrospace S4.I took it to a different dealer and not the one I purchased the ski off as he has lost his dealership for some unknown reason, and after diagnostics he ordered a new cam sensor.Ski still did not start, he then removed the engine and found that all the the bolts had snapped on the flywheel and had been spinning around inside the engine.
    He reccomends getting a reconditionend engine as the one I have will require a full strip down to get all the debris out.Cost is estimated at(£5100) $8250..... This would have a 1 year warranty Or I could trade my ski in for an 2011 RXP-X RS and pay (£9000)$14500 this would have a 2 year warranty.
    The new ski is for sale for (£11500) $18624.

    My ski has had 2 superchargers then the timing chain snapped , I then got a short block installed by the dealer I have purchased my ski off through seadoo under the warranty , but I think the dealer might have only installed the original bolts to the flywheel not the uprated ones.

    I wrote all this out then uploaded the photos, they were all over the page so I had to relocate my text (HAHA).

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Snapped or improperly torqued...

    Did they give you any warranty when they changed your block?

    Do you know if they reused the bolts on the flywheel? I read that you should always buy new ones when you remove the old ones even though you have the updated flywheel bolts.

    The block was changed while the ski was still in its one year warranty from purchasing it from new and ythe work was dopne by the dealer , I never got an extened warranty . that would be 2 years ago though the engine has only done about 5o hours since the change over.

    Just an update .
    I was advised to take my ski to this guy :- http://www.seadoo-jetski.co.uk/index.php/james-bushell/
    I drove 200 miles to his place last Monday and left my ski at about 1630 , James was not there as he had been racing in Austria.
    He started work on Tuesday morning and by the end of the day the engine had been stripped down and rebuilt with a new crank as the old one was damaged, it also needed a new bearings and there was damage to the block too.
    I picked the ski up on Saturday and I am very pleased with the ski.
    Here is James on this video :-
