    Exclamation Help! Spline/driveshaft problem-rxt

    So yesterday i was riding in chop and suddenly the rxt stopped and would not go above idle speed, i took the pump off to check that everything was fine, which it was but i think the pump is the problem because i put the pump back on and the driveshaft will not go into the prop so the prop spins freely now and will not ingage with the prop, i hope the photo helps. What should i do to resolve this?

    There is a gap between the tunnel and the wear ring, so i believe i have striped them, do i just swap out the prop and will that fix the problem?

    Its possible the pump came lose and this would cause driveline damage. Both prop and shaft will most likely need replaced.

    i have a spare prop which slides on perfectly but i can not get the stock prop in the pump to go in but the solas prop which i have yet to install slides on perfectly and will not budge when it is on, which i assume is good since that means that the splines are connected.

    Its done...Tis should be under warranty if your dealer is any good....There is a bulletin about this happening due to inadaquate lock tite on the bolts from the factory...

    make sure if you take it to the dealer that they FOLLOW THE BULLETIN TO THE T.... MAKE SURE THEY REPLACE THE BOLTS WITH THE NEW DESIGN AND [COLOR="#FF0000"] DO NOT START THE SKI FOR 24 HOURS AFTER THEY INSTALL THE NEW BOLTS!!!!!!![/COLOR

    And have them check your engine alignment...Your mounts are fine
