    Timing chain

    My rxp 2007 is 1100 hrs. I'm going to replace valve.
    Do I have to replace timing chain?

    Timing chain

    Wouldn't be a bad idea to replace it and piston rings and crank bearings

    Chain are supposed to last.
    But I would change all bearings, seals, piston ring, nice hone and check the valve.

    No way would I ever tear down that far without replacing the chain, 1100 hours I would be looking at doing a full rebuild. Complete head work, total check of service limits on all parts, new bearings, seals, both oil pumps rebuilt, timing chain and etc.

    I'm with dnielson. I'd do a total rebuild replacing all serviceable wear items. (note. I've never been inside of seadoo motor so take any advice given with a grain of salt)

    First CONGRATS MAN! Second, a butt load of questions

    What do you attribute your long life to? What conditions do you ride? Maintenance schedule? What mods have you done on your ski? I've got about 40 hrs on mine since completely redone and would like to get 1060 more hours out of it before doing overhaul as well Do you alway baby it by riding like shown in your avatar photo? (is that you?)

    Hone like a 50 year old hooker at 1100 hours
