Oil pump shaft, or not?
This is a new one to me... Oil is dissapearing, but not in the normal way.
I've had the oil pump shaft (break) separate from the shaft 3 other times in the last coupla years and every time the oil just pukes out of the exaust. It also pools (makes a lake) in the valve train.
This time it ran fine for 30 min. Died, and had no fire. Just the puke out of the exhaust.
Good compresion on all 3.
There is absolutly nothing in the head / valve train like the last 3 i fixed.
I'm being lazy and asking if anyone has had this same prob. B/c i'm guessing it is the front oil pump shaft again and i don' feel like pulling the engine tonight (gtx's & rxt's you can replace the pump shaft in the hull, rxp's don't have enough room.) yes, i know they do, but it's easier to pull the engine and fix it on the bench.

For rough water i prefer the rxt its extra weight and size help high speed tracking thru chop. For inland lakes i would prefer the rxp though its lighter wait allows for higher topspeeds and acceleration times. Both are superfast its just a matter of what water conditions you ride most in.

it depends on the person also...im 6'5 the rxp was ok but if i ever had a rider with me we would be squished...
the rxt is better for the longer trips ...it holds the water much better....
i had a guy on a rxp and i was on my t-x and he could keep up in the moderate chop he did nothing but cavitate
mostly between the two is the rider pregerence and again water conditions
