I have a couple questions about a 02 Honda turbo...
What should top rpm be ??
It has a bad water leak in the hose behind the bearing carrier only at full throttle,is this a seal/bearing setup like a Kawi ???
What up with the 2 hoses going to the bearing carrier,one is for grease,what is the other one for ?? It runs to a fitting by the rear electric box ???
Thanx for any help.

The full RPM on an F is between about 5800-6000, lower than an R.
The carrier bearing has a rotary seal in it and should be greased with a Marine grease every 50 hours.
I am not sure what the second hose is, maybe Nitro or Superjim will identify it. Knowing Honda it might be a grease purge line to save excess grease from going into the water and "killing all known sealife".

2nd Hose is for air bleed when lubing the seal. Remove it at the electrical box when doing this.

I have a water leak that only happens at full throttle,it appears to start leaking (like a spraying garden hose) when ski is at full throttle & is coming from the area just behind the carrier bearing,it dosent leak at 3/4 throttle just full throttle & is spraying water all over the place.
Has anybody seen this ??
I guess the motor has to come out to pull the driveshaft ??

No, just the drive shaft. Pull the pump off and your good to go. Motor stays in.

it is a spline (use puller), unscrew the nut. remove the coupler, then pull the drive shaft out.

Thanx for the tips !!!
I pulled it apart no prob,found the rubber around the grease nipple was delaminating & at full throttle it would open up & start spraying like a fountain.
Well I have replaced the rusted turbo now the driveline carrier,hope it works this time,have to wait for parts.
