    Yes but you will have to remove the bottom of the case. I left the pistons rods and crank in place just removed the bottom of the case/oil pan.

    wasnt sure since when i built the motor the chain was the first thing to go on. maby i could get a new sea-doo chain with the link and save me a few minutes

    Yes you can but the link scares the crap out of me maybe I am just a baby but still scares me. It will save you a TON of time and work.

    Don't be stupid. Just removed the bottom of the case. Don't go with the link chain. Get a Rotax Racing Chain and have piece of mind.

    If done correctly there is not a problem with fitting split links. Problems happen when people do not use the correct tools for the type of chain they are working on or understand the process of fitting the links.

    Have you seen the replacement chain? I have and it looks terrible. I know i wont trust my motor or for that matter a ten speed bike with it. it makes sense why it only cost pennies for this chain.

    I have to say I have not seen the new chains. I would like to think Seadoo have got it right this time with all the problems they have been having.

    You can not always judge a book by its cover, something's out there look like there are work a million dollars but in reality they can be crap.

    You can replace the chain with out spliting the rod caps. I remove the Oil nozzles and it makes things so much easier.
    I bought a chain from Jerry and was assured it was a good chain.
