    VTS Shaft Nut

    how do you get the vts shaft nut off because iam trying to take out the stock exhaust outlet baffle plastic box. i tried reading the riva directions for rear exhaust but it doesnt say much and a pair of channel locks doesnt really work that well.

    There's a special Seadoo tool for it There are other ways, but I forgot exactly what tool I used. Removing the pump will make it easier to access if you haven't already.

    If its the same size nut as on an X4 hull, I use an old inner tie rod removal tool. ( fits PERFECTLY!) Any auto tech should have a few gathering dust in his tool box

    I know its not the right tool, but in a desperation moment, you can use a long needle nose plier. Once you get the first turn done, you can use your hand to do the rest. Its a little tough because there is a rubber grommet to keep the water out.

    Just take a sawz all to it unless you want to keep it in one piece!
    Someone once said you can remove the fuel rack and then it would come out also!

    I used a large wrench, cant remember the exact size, just measure the nut with a small ruler. I was able to get the wrench on the nut just enough to loosen it. Once it starts to move you'll be able to turn it by hand. You'll need the pump off for sure to do this. Another thought I had was to maybe try a crowsfoot socket? Anybody tried using one?
