    F-12X ingested rope...

    My wifes 06 F-12X ingested a rope that was tied to the front of hull.
    it got in the grate, wrapped around the impeller shaft and got bound tight around the hull/shaft seal, does anybody have info on getting a seal on the internet, and any write-up on doing yourself?
    thanks in advance... i think she learned the lesson on leaving that rope in the foot well.

    go to and search honda pumps, gives great advice...

    you should be able to remove the intake grate and dig it out easily with a sharp knife....

    i towed it to a beach with my 08 RXP-X. and a beach stranger really helped me out..he grabbed a sharp knife from his truck and helped me cut & unwind it from the shaft.
    the seal area looked tweaked up by the rope. but it started up no problem, and my wife was able to ride it back to the ramp.
    thank, i will check that site out...
