    P-X Hose Chaffing issues???

    Working on a RXP-X and noticed a couple of thing. Oil over filled from the dealer. 1/4 inch above the high bent on the dip stick. Also, 2 hoses getting rubber by seat cowl aft of the engine. Anyone else see this? Or had any other little issues to watch out for?? Look like Seadoo knew about the J-pipe hose and unstall a pink rubber band / hose insulator.

    Dirty Dude u obviously have an early release boat like my FIRST unit .....my second unit as u can see in these pics has the exhaust hose zip tied down to keep it off the cowling mount and zip tied back to keep it off the throttle body ........then the exhaust manifold to water box water line is zip tied down now to keep it off the cowling mount on the other side ....these zip ties are all from the factory like this on later released dated units .... so with a few zip ties u can alleviate the chaffing!!!!! good luck fellas

    The problem isn't even the zip ties. The hoses will sit fine without rubbing if everything is lined up right. Mine were off from the factory, so I took everything apart, repositioned the waterbox and now everything sits fine without rubbing. For the water lines going from the manifold you will need to use some zip ties to keep those from rubbing against the seat lock.

    Calm down there MR. BET!!!!!!!! PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You said the lack of zip ties were a problem, which is true. I was just kindly telling the OP that you can fix the issue completely by adjusting everything.

    I had taken off my hoses to replace the clamps even before I rode the ski. So when I look at them now I don't see them aligned similar to yours Dirty Sanchez. But if it were that easy of a fix then why did they just use zip ties to correct? Laziness? Have you tried loosening the hoses to see if you can slightly reposition them? It might be one of those vicious circles where in order to adjust one you have to loosen and adjust another. And before you know it they're all off.

    Just my .02
