05 rxp died on water today! help would be appreciated.
i was crusing along in the Cape fear river and my ski started skipping. it ran another 100 yards or so and just cut off. there were no codes on display..i tried to restart it and it made a terriable noise from the motor compartment.
I raised the seat and had a little smoke came out smelt like oil. I got towed back to the boat dock by a yamaha ..i reallly love the rooster tail coming down on your head for a mile and half, but thank you chris for being there. i loaded it on the trailer and secured it , i proceded to try to start it and it turned and then made a horrible sound from inside the motor like metal was hitting. i stopped dead in my tracks and brought it home. i am getting ready to tear it down . i heard about weak valves and crankshaft issues. if anyone can help please let me know ., my cell is 910 644 7705, i am chris by the way. ty fellow jet ski riders.i am down but not out!

So when you try to start now it turns over but thats it yeah?
Check for oil in the hull first and any visible damage to the block. Maybe post a video to youtube of you cranking it so we can see / hear what you can when cranking.
May have dropped a valve as they were weak on the 05's / timing chain snapped / supercharger failed - The choices are endless at this stage as to why its packed up
Oh and get under the ski and check the intake grate and impeller for debris that may have gone in and caused it to jam.

i removed the pump its fine. i have taken the intake off and am in the process of removing the head bolts, but i dont to remove the head yet , not yet anyway, if its good i would have to redo the timing. i have the service manual for the ski. i think i will pull the superchrger first and inspect it..what do i look for on the supercharger..if anyone would like to call and ask questions please do..i am chris..910 644 7705..its takes several hours on here to get questions answered. thanks everyone who is trying to assist me with this problem

If the bearings went out in the charger then yes.
The charger shaft hooks to the flywheel and if it became unbalanced due to the bearing then your going to spend some $$$ and time fixing it.

Did you attempt to bump it over after you removed your charger?

How long did you ride it like that? I had a S/C go bad last year, it sounded like a seagull being tortured. Hopefully you get back on the water quickly.

What does the other side of S/C look like cause from those pictues it looks bad. Had the ceramic washers been changed.
