    For an 2004 RXP....with blown SC....Expect the following...

    - Pull motor, split case, flush everything...
    - Freshen motor with new bearings and rings...
    - Replace all valves, 2004/05...prone to breakage...
    - Replace flywheel bolts, 2004/05...prone to breakage...
    - Replace oil jet/restrictor that is in block, 2003-05 it would starve valvetrain of oil when prolong WOT run were done...

    Danny is on it 100%

    Its a pita but its gotta be done..
    Only thing I can add is the timing chain and possible timing gears.
    But for sure change the chain with everthing Danny said.
    Your looking at some big $$$$

    Rip on..

    Might be cheaper or almost the same $$$$ to buy a remaned engine and drop it in..
    I've seen over 20+ sbt 4 stroke engines installed in the last 2 years with 0 issues.

    Derek45, I spend a lot of time with my ski job friend, he says that only use the SBT swap as last resort ... meaning you will get 1 year warranty with it because it will last @ least 1 year. If you plan to ride wot, or race, or keep ski ... the cost will be be about 25% higher & labor PITA, but if @ all possible rebuild or low time swap is better. I know $$$ is always a main concern. But rather pay big once ... that a lot all the time. Good Luck

    Yes was looking at time factor wish I found this deal at the beginning of winter, now that the season is comming, My parts and trailer biz is booming again, so not much free time, so If I do the rebuild my self may get it done by mid summer, but who knows, making $ is top priority, we will see, I do need a shop manual for all the specs, if anyone knows where there might be one? only seen a 05 rxp CD on Ebay, but would think they would be the same, when it comes to the 4 stroke Seadoos, I dont know Jack.

    Hey, I would say if SBT hasn't been having issues lately it's probably a good option to throw one in. Save some time, so you can be riding all summer long instead of wrenching.
