    OK what's up with these flywheel bolts ?

    I just changed the flywheel bolts on the RXP with the updated Seadoo kit and the bolts that came out are identical to the new ones in the kit, same markings on the heads of both bolts. The Seadoo kit I used is part number 295 501 043 and the engine is dated 06/2005.

    The only difference I can see is the 05 shop manual calls for 18 ft/lb and the kit instructions call for 11ft/lb then 50deg torque angle. If the bolts are not different was it just the torque spec that changed ?

    From all the info I could find the 04 and 05 years were bad, 06 and up have the updated bolts. This is an 05 engine with the updated bolts The only other explanation is the previous owner had them replaced.

    stock 05 FW bolts are standard stainless bolts and the updated bolts are hardened steal flange style bolts

    don't use arp flywheel. stock 05 are soft stainless like chris said. I was able to remove mine by hand Replacements are hardened coated steel with blue loctite already applied. That is all you will ever need

    What's the need? To my knowledge there has never been a problem with the updated bolts and the turbo guys even run the stockers.

    There has been a few cases of the "OEM upgraded" bolts failing too.

    With production there is always flaws. Were they just a coincidence or is there an issue?
