    Post kawasaki jetpump

    hi all
    do you guys recommend that I should put new bearings & seals @ 100 hrs . or just inspect & go from there. the ski has always been used in salt water. the pump was serviced @ 25hrs the ski now has 56hrs .

    the ski is a 2012 lx bought in January 2013.thanks for your replies.



    cheers

    Usually you replace them if they fail.
    You will hear a difference when they start to go. Get used to the feel and the sound of your pump and prop when they are working well, so that when they act up you will know something is not right.
    It won't hurt to remove your rear pump cone at 75 or 100 hours to check that your grease is still in good shape and you do not have any water intrusion.
    If you don't ride much then just do it once a season, before you put it away for any length of time.
    My advice is :
    Just Ride on till they don't sound right or you start to feel a loss in performance.
    If you feel like you need to, you could buy the new bearings and seals now and keep them ready for when you need to replace them. Having those items on hand is always a good move, an extra impellor is a good thing to have as well if you suck up some rocks and you are on a trip.

    never wait till they fail .

    preventative care is always cheaper

    100 hr aim to replace
    75hr inspect

    ensure its all updated at the same time

    I pulled mine down. I have a stx12f and 15f. Mine had gotten to the point where the salt corrosion was squeezing the wear sleeve on the impeller and wore out the impellers. Granted this was not a sudden thing I have 05's and they've been in salt water their intire life.
