    Little help with 2001 XLT 1200

    Hoping i can get a little help with my XLT 1200 before the season gets underway in my neck of the woods...
    Last year i picked up a second XLT 1200 and had some cavitation issues with it..

    At that point i took the pump apart and i was missing the flat rubber piece that seals the nozzle to the impeller housing.
    I sealed this up with rtv and it made improvements, but still have some cavitation out of the hole.

    So my questions,
    1) How do i inspect verify in wear ring. impeller are still in spec or useable?
    2) if require replacement, what are my best options, keeping a budget in mind
    3) I intend to install a ppk when i'm working on the pump again....

    Now what i did do... I installed the wave eaters on both my machines.
    Have the 'd' rings ready for install, but understand this is an undertaking!!!
    When im doing the d rings, i'll change out the oil line clamps.

    Anything else??

    Mostly want to get the cavitation issue fixed as this is most annoying..

    Thanks in advance for your help

    you would get better response in the Yamaha 2stroke performance section

    if you have a service manual, it tells how to check the wear ring/impeller and has all the torque specs for your job on the pipe removal/D plate job

    also try the advanced search function... lots of threads on D plates and cavitation
