Head torque RXP 2007 215hp
how much do i have to torque the head?

Torque to 30 ft lbs with a torque wrench
Then follow up with a torque angle gauge
and turn them 120 degrees.
Then come back and turn them 90 degrees
On the rocker shaft bolts (they must be replaced)
Torque them to 15 ft lbs and then turn them 90 degrees with a torque angle gauge.

You can't. If you don't have an angle gauge, then make one. It's simple.
Go here, and print out this on a sheet of paper. Cut a hole in the middle and tape it to your work to keep it from moving. Use one piece of tape, so you can re-index it to zero on every move. Put a zip tie on your torque wrench and use as a pointer.

I picked up my torque angle gauge at autozone for $12

For 17.99 you can buy the clear plastic degree wheel from Seadoo that has a hole in it already. I have torque angle gauge and an angle torque wrench but it is a lot faster, eaisier and just as accurate to use the degree wheel. Use a paint pen to make lines at 0, 90, and 120 degrees. Then you can quickly use it on all the torque to yield bolts on the 4-tec.
The part number is
529 035 607
Try it you'll like it
Also on the 2007 Models they say to replace the head bolts every time rather than measure them as in 2003-2006 models. I know they are the same part number as the previous years but that is just what was said in the 2007 update book.
