    Well i found out the hard way that a bike with a 4inch air intake doesnt like to jump the waves of a 56ft searay.

    water got sucked in hydrolocked the motor and bent a rod.

    needless to say ive had a wonderful day. Every time i turn around something is broke. and its never cheep i realize you have to pay to play but DAMN its getin excesive i cant handle it any more. F speed i want some reliability. Im fixin this pile and buyin a honda





    if anyone has a set of rods 4 sale please pm me.

    I think you have a far less chance of ingesting water from submarining the front of your ski if you have a rear air intake as opposed to one mounted more towards the front of the ski or where the stock one was. Just my opinion.

    I would not submarine any RXP with any aftermarket air intake.

    If you want relialbility fix the RXP, put it back to stock and ride it. The Honda would have done the same thing with the same mod.

    You musta really sunk it good to get that much water up above the gas tank and down the intake. my 4 inch works fine in the big chop.

    So you are calling the RXP a pile when it was actually a homemade aftermarket air intake that cause the problem? That's the problem that is running rampant these days. No one can take responsibility for their own action. YOU did something to damage your ski but you'd rather blame Sea Doo.
