Anyone have a link or instructions to change prop on 2012 Fx SHO Cruiser?
I have it all torn apart so just need to know how to break it loose and which way to go. I have a short video from youtube but not quite sure if I got this down yet, brand new ski and don't want to damage anything. Thanks in advance.

I use a vise, box wrench and pipe over the wrench.
Slide the box side of the wrench down the shaft onto the prop. Put the spline tool on the end of the shaft and put in a vise. I put the assembly so the vise is on the left side with the pump hanging of the right side. the prop is reverse thread so its gonna feel like your tightening a bolt but thats the direction you break it free. So put a pipe over the wrench and pull towards you. Sould break free.

Just swapped one out yesterday and happen to have a pic. Here is what I use. Very easy to do. Hope that helps.

Just remember when you put it back on make it TIGHT! and after installing new one make the first start up is in the water. This way it will snug it down. Mine spun it's way off when running on the hose after initial install.
