Kinda New, Anyone Know a Site or Have a File of the Parts of a SeaDoo 4-Tec Ski?
Hey guys, I'm kinda new to the forum (joined in October). I live in NJ and I'm only 14 so I can't ride my dad's RXT yet . I was wondering if anyone has a file or knows a website that kinda explains the parts of a ski like an RXT, GTX, RXP, etc. A major part of what I wanna know are the parts of the engine so that can do what my dad does on the ski. I wanna know since my dad will only let me ride it if I know how to maintain it like he does and know as much as he does. I do know some, but not near how much I need to know. Thanks in advance . -MaxMike

a little common sense when driving and some basic maintance skills and you should be fine.
sounds like he just wants to make sure you don't screw up his toy..
few basics things....
1 check oil before every ride. (between bends)
2 basic look over of steering
3 make sure you got a full tank before you lanch
4 make sure it starts before you lanch
5 stay outa the shallow water. dont run it under 2 feet min deep.
6 and most important thing......... read everything in the seadoo section on this site but don't start taking anything apart without your dad.
look around for the pdf file of the shop manual.. it has everything you will ever need to know about your rxt... I knew very little about the 4 tec motor when i first got mine(im a old 2 stroke guy) but with the manual i was able to do anything on my 2 4tec conversion boats..

It's not Riva, it's HLSM. They are the company that provide the online shopping cart software for both Riva and myself. It seems they are about a year behind the times

Thanks Larry, your business is much appreciated.
I will send HSLM another email Wednesday and see what the hold up is.

maxmike, you are being smart!! learn all you can, knowledge is power, ALOT of people ride their skis and have no clue whats going on.
you just looking around this site puts you ahead of most owners/riders.
when you ride, BE RESPONSIBLE, you have no idea how fast these skis are, and 70mph takes a long time to turn and slow down, and getting tossed off at that speed can be very dangerous...
but enough of my lecture.
my suggestion is to read every post on this site going back about two years... and also read the entire shop manual. you got all winter!!!
if you do you will learn everything mechanical, every problem, every solution, every part, every upgrade, all the maintenance, how to ride, etc.
that will set you up for a lifetime fo fun!!!!!
i have been reading this site and several others every day for 6-7 years, its fun, and where i learned everything i know about skis!!!!
PS you should get into standups at your age, a SXR or superjet is
1 MILLION times more fun, and athletic, and cool. tell your dad i said so! and you can get a nice standup for real cheap compared to these new seadoos!!!

thanks guys. i appreciate all of the advice. lextoy, i don't really plan on a standup since i don't like how small they are. i would instead look for a rx di or a gtx. i have ridden both (my neighbor by my shore house has them) and i love how i can ride them.
