Wave Eater Clips??
I puchased a 2000 Gp800 last summer and it seems to be in great shape. I am finishing up my winter maintenance as was wondering if i need to purchase some Wave Eater Clips for my power valves. Are they a necessary item to save a motor?

Thanks. One more question?
What about the coupler that they sell?
Thanks for the advice.

Mine just came thru the door in sunny (gasp!) England. Took one week from order to delivery.I've bought the couplers as well as the clips ($100 & $5 p+p), and they look good. The plastic OEM ones are CR#P- too much play to be accurate, so I'll get these on tonight after work. As I've said before- This forum is like a medical journal- If you aren't careful, you recognise EVERY symptom of EVERY problem and become paranoid it's what you've got! Best is to be selective, ask the guys (and Gals) advice like you have, and buy the stuff they say you need, or is good value for money. I reckon this site is the best test-bed for any product for jetski's, and I've learned LOADS, and made some very informed choices because of it! Thank's Y'All!

Wave Eater Installation
I have them on order. Now I am getting prepared to install them when they arrive. Is it possible to remove the exhaust manifold from the engine without removing the engine. The bottom center bolts are a pain to get to. Anyone have any secrets?

Cheap Insurance!!!!!! A buddy of mine has a 2001 GP800R. Pin came out of both power vavles, the piston ate one power vavle completely and had started chewing on the second. Parts for repairs added up to about 500 dollars and that was only gaskets, piston rings, new power valves, and of course the wave eater clips. there was also alot of time invested in removing the engine tearing it down completely to to clean the entire assembly of metal shavings and then reassemble. I immediately installed the wave eaters on my GP1300 after seeing what happenened to his. Worth every $.
