Sorry just one question...this is normal with a rxpx new with 6 hours and 2 times on sea (when came back washed with water). 1 month of life.
It is important that the rxpx isn't stay in water for a long time ,only when is the power no. No rest in water.
How is it possible so much rust???
Is it normal or can i ask to seadoo for this problem?

That only seems to happen in salt water....coat it with WD40 or Fluid Film after each run....

my 07 RXT has 48 hours on it...30 or so in the ocean, and I do have tiny specks of rust on the driveshaft but its not as much as yours and I have none on the impeller. When you spray down with freshwater do you put the hose into the pumptunnel and make sure you get alot of water in there?? Using anticorrosion spray also helps for the future..

But the shaft or the impeller are not inox? it seems simple iron if there is as much rust as here for onlr 6hours on the adriatic sea (in the mediterreanean)...
Is impossible too much rust for as little hours... there i can't do nothing maybe....
Inox= no rust, isn't it?(or a little bit of rust in a long period...NOT so MUCH!!!)

I would ask others near you if they are having rust problems, and if they do, what are they doing?... Ron

Maybe this is only one of my problems...

i would spray with some crc or wd-40ish type..not completey soaked, just coated. that and a good flush should prevent any rust build-up.

CRC-656 better than WD 40

You're going to have to spray your equipment down with a corrosion inhibitor if you keep riding in marine...
I usually have many of these lubricants on the shelf at any given time, I will say Bombardier makes a fantastic spray lube, better I think than anything I else I have used... this stuff destroys corrosion within minutes:
There is another product called Salt Away too...
