    You need patience, deep socket E8 Torx, 1/4 ratchet, and maybe a swival head. You can use a regular E8 torx socket but the deep socket makes it much easier.

    Work from the opposite side of the ski...leaning over the engine. Just be patient after they loosen up with a socket wrench I screwed them out with my fingers with the short socket extension.

    It's a 07 RXP, I just received my catch can and wasn't sure what type of bolts are on the manifold, I only need to remove 2. I ride closed course and surf, ski has approx 15 hours on it.

    It should come out easy. 4 of my bolts broke, it was a nightmare. 200 hours on it, salt water riding. you should be O K. good luck and have fun. I don't belive in "catch Can"s.

    8 mm deep socket, 1/4 drive ratchet is easier to fit in there. From the opposite side like lafjax said.
