Anyone ever installed a rear step on an RXP?
I would like to put a step on the back of my RXP. My dealer has never done it before, and at $98/hour labor, I'm not sure I want to be his guinea pig! Is it easily accessible or am I better off letting the dealer do it? Do you have to install backing plates on the inside of the hull, and is it even accessible without removing the engine or a large amount of exhaust and plumbing? Thanks!

I have a 2004 RXP. I purchased a used Sea-Doo step right here on the classified ads. It came with the step and all mounting bolts. Paid $60.00 for it. Took it to my Sea-Doo dealer and he installed it for $85.00. I have a stage 3 set up with everything. There are no problems to install it. It works fine--(I weigh 240 lbs) and there were no inside mounting plates--dealer just drilled the holes--put sealer in the holes and lock-tight on the nuts and off we went. Sure makes it easy to mount the ski after swimming. Go for it.

Fitted them in with sealer so if you remove the step the plates will not drop.
Sure makes it better to get back on when you fall off !!!

Yeah the step is pretty handy for re-boarding.

If you decide on a boarding step I can get you one for $113 plus shipping. Made by Aqua Performance which is the company SD uses to make their OEM steps.
