    Timing Chain Removal?

    Is there any way to remove and replace the timing chain without removing the crankshaft on 2004 RXP?

    My scenario is motor out on a engine stand and PTO cover removed.

    You have to remove the bottom of the case and set it aside. You can replace a chain without removing the rod bolts it is just a little teedious.

    yes you can, buy the recall kit from Seadoo and with the proper tools it can be done easily. but word of warning, dont drop the chain in or you might have to pull engine anyway,
    I did it today on a 2011 GTi dropped right to the bottom under the crank gear, but with super strong magnets and some bespoke tools i got it out and finished the job.

    Oh, yea, I want a master link on my chain. No thanks, I would rather pull it and install a solid chain. Just me.

    Master links are run on super bikes with zero issues. They take more of a beating then our skis

    I disagree. Super bikes don't run up to the strength design limit like these chains do. It is not so much an issue with the master link, per se, but the process used to put the master link on. Done right, should not be an issue, but if the tool isn't used just right, you would introduce a weak link.

    Them we will agree to disagree. No issues with master links

    Yeah, I probably should have said it a different way. No issues with master links if done properly, but comparing to super bikes is a bad example due to different applications and different load levels.
