    Hello

    New to this world, I was out in the lake and came across a shallow area and suck up a rock,
    It would not wash through, I put the ski on its trailed, how do I get the rocks out and inspect for damage ?? Its a 1200 GP R,

    Any help would be useful !!

    You should pull off the intake grate and clean out all the sand/rocks.

    Once ALL of the debris is removed, start it up on the hose and rev it up. This will flush out the rest of the system and any gunk there might be.

    The intake has 4 bolts (two different lengths) with 10 mm heads. Very easy to remove and reinstall the intake.

    ditto^

    If it has never been off, becareful if the bolts seem tight to loosen. Don't force it to much or the inserts that the bolts thread into can break from the hull in the front inserts. Use heat, and/or go in each direction in 1/8 turn increments to help loosen any crusty buildup in the threads.
