    how to replace powervalve clip?

    hello guys! I am new to the forum and new to jetski. Never own one before and no experience what so ever. Just got 2001 gp800r 84 hrs on it. i have read on the net that powervalve can fall into the cyclinder and cause engine damage. As a preventive measure, i want to replace the clips. the questions are,

    how many clips and how easy to to do it without any knowledge? although i think i am mechanically inclined.

    where can i order the right clips?

    thank you in advance.

    You're not replacing the clips, you're adding them. You have two power valves so you'll need two clips. You can prob post a wanted ad in the classified section. And they're very easy to install so you'll be fine.

    Have a look here. That is a 1200, you will only have two power valves.

    Just wanted to bump this thread. I need to install the clips on my 04 XLT1200. Based on the picture seen in post #5, do these clips just snap on or do they screw on? I have never had mine off so does the pic show it with the clips attached or not? Is there a gasket that has to be replaced after removing the power valve coverplate?
