    New Guy

    Well I guess I picked a bad time to join the forum. I found you guy's after a problem while riding over the weekend. My wife and I have an 05 RXP and a 05 RXT, each with about 40 hrs. While riding the RXP I noticed a drop in speed (about 10 mph). Well not knowing, I kept riding and thinking it would pick back up (about 30 min) it didn't. Got on the web, found you guys yesterday, found the threads on the ceramic washers, went home took a hose loose from the s/c, and sure enough I could rotate the blade. I saw Jerry's pictures of the oil screen. Do you guy's think my motor needs to pulled? Oh by the way, great site, very informative!!!

    Pull your SC out and see if both washers are there (I doubt it). If even one of them is gone, motor needs to come out. Do you have an extended warranty?

    Welcome to the forum. Sorry it took something like this for you to find us.

    I was afraid of this, I couldn't pull the s/c yet due to not having the tool to extract that star bolt next to the block. Thanks for the info guys.

    The star bolt is a E8 torx socket. On the top bolt you use a 1/4" box end wrench.

    Yes, your oil pumps will need to be R&R'd.

    Sorry you had to find us on these terms, but glad you found us.

    Thanks!
    Jerry

    just a regular old 1/4 inch box end wrench will do the trick!

    Thanks again fellas, tonight I'll get to see the damage. I called the dealership where the skis were purchased (no help). I spoke to their mechanic whom claimed they have never had a problem with the s/c's.
