2006 Seadoo RXP...ARE YOU KIDDING ME???
Just bought a 2006 RXP with only 36 hours. So clean you can eat off of it.
I've owned only GTX's because of wife and kids but it was finally time to step up my game.
Why didn't anybody tell me what I've been missing???? This machine is A BEAST!!!! I'm so in love.
NOBODY'S touching this but me. Back off wifey, sorry.
Question though...does this model year have the much unheralded plastic supercharger washers?
if so, what kind of service bill am I looking at when its time to service the sc and change them to the metal washers?
Any other idiosyncrasies with this model & year that you guys know of that I should look out for?

Don't even start it again.
Pull the sc, and get the washers replaced right away!
Wouldn't be a bad idea to change oil and filter now as well unless you have a service record saying it was done recently.

Don't even crank it again until the s/c is completely rebuilt. Washers and bearings everytime.
If those ceramic washers fail its a 2k+++ fix and the motor has to come out... its a royal pita when they break.
Don't even crank it...Its no joke!!!!
Also don't let a dealership doooo the s/c rebuild. 9 out of 10 dealerships have not so good techs.
Send your s/c to Jerry (greenhulk) and you know it will be done right!!!!
Congrats on a bad ass ski... you have officially been bitten by the speed bug...

2006 is the crossover period for valve update. You should confirm that the exhaust valves are the updated ones by pulling the valve cover and checking the ID number on the end. If it starts with 75 good, 72 bad. What build date is on the engine plate?

Thanks guys. Will do.
@Sayers, I'll check for that I.D .# and build date tomorrow during daylight.

i got a 04 rxp as a project ski for son and me to work on..
i find myself grinning ear to ear as u sweep thru turns, elbows nearly touching the water spray in your face.. great fun.
we have hammered this ski for over 40hours in engine run time and had a blast..
its a shame this has been lost on the newer hulls
