    Probems on RXP X

    The oil dip stick I pulled it out today and about an inch of it was broken so a piece stayed inside the oil. Also my coolant resevoir was almost empty what do you guys think?

    I took it to Riva in Key Largo to get my 10 hr service and I checked it right after picking up the ski from Riva and the oil was fine and the dip stick. Until Sunday in Sebastian that I desided to check to oil and when I pulled it out you couldn't even see the line were it marks the oil and this was like two weeks apart so I don't know what happened I don't know if by just putting the stick in it can just break or maybe somebody pulled it out and broke the end as a f***ked up joke because I've been told to break the dip stick you got to bend it back and forth a couple of times. Has this happened to anyone? Also If the piece thats in there I am guessing about an inch will it do any harm and if yes do you think the dealer would do anything about it through warranty?

    I would not run that thing until you get that piece of metal out..........

    I would think SeaDoo would warranty the work. I just cannot imagine how the dip stick broke!

    I'm planning on taking it to Riva in Pompano hopefully they don't just put a new dip stick and leave it like that. AS far as the coolant goes has it happen to anyone where would it normally leak

    first the dip stick did not just break, someone broke it

    and if your coolant is all gone and you do not see any in the hull then someone took the plug out of the rid eplate and drained it

    I would think someone screwed with your ski

    That must be a shitty area

    actually with the coolant it's the second time that it gets really low the first time I filled it up thinking since the ski was new it had some air pockets but when I took out the ski again after a few hours it was low and as far as the dip stick have no idea what the hell happened

    I think the SKIMONSTER did it.... He is cousins with the LOCKNESSMONSTER.....
    Take it to the dealer, let them figure it out... Get documentation about this incident ......That way you have paper trail for future reference...

    Is your rideplate leaking? There's a thread on here about that being an issue. Too, the dipstick thing along with the coolant thing sounds more like vandalism than coincidence because both are odd. If you pull the throttle body away from the engine it takes the dipstick, casing and all with it. Then you have to line it back up to get the throttle body to sit flush or make sure the dipstick is set back into the engine...was your throttle body taken off for any reason? Did you remove the resonator by taking the throttle body off by chance? Is there more to the story?
