    2000 Seadoo RX boring and Rave valve questions!

    Just bought this ski with blown motor. One cylinder has good compression and other one doesn't...

    It has the 951 white motor. I've seen some rx's with a silver motor? Just wandering if this motor isn't original?

    Also, what will have to be done to the Rave valve since it will be getting bored?

    Motor has already been bored 1mm (40 over) stock according to machine shop.. Hopefully I will be able to get away with just boring and not getting a new $80 sleeve.

    Thanks in advance!

    Give your rave valves to your boring guy he can cut them up for you.

    I asked him about them because they're still installed and he doesn't know anything about them. He won't be doing it until next week at least so I need to call him back and let him know what to do.

    Cut? Will he know what I mean or do it right?

    the 951 white motor came in the 97.5 GSX-Limited. That ski is like having a grenade with the pin allready pulled. The motor in a 2000 RX in silver. Good luck with the ski.

    I've heard the white motor is more reliable.. And why do you say that?

    Not the most reliable source, and what makes the motor so bad? I might sell it after hearing this..

    i owned a 951 myself, an XPL and sold it due to the concerns about the 951 and the fact that I didnt' like the ride offered by the wishbone hull, but many many people will say its a grenade.. Granted some run for a long time properly maintained but they are prone to water ingestion failures, (means if they get a little water inside,,, forget it) but i've just heard this second hand. I went back to the 787's after reading extensively about the 951.

    I believe the rave valve needs to be cut if you go .75 mm or bigger
