New to the site
Whatís up everyone
Iím new to the site and new to PWCs all around. I just picked up a New 2008 RXT-X and I have to say you all are freaking me out reading about these T-Xís cracking the pump tunnel and sinking . Iím glad I got the 5 year warranty.
The only mod Iím thinking about is the RXT-X Aquavein Intake Grate and I guess I should invest in bilge pumps and maybe a Keg in my storage bin hummÖ. will that void the warranty.
The only other question I have is insurance any input on how much covrage and who to use?

Get the insurance now! I cannot stress that enough. Within 1 month of owning my ski, a ski-related (my ski) death occured. Insurance is a must!
Do some research on reinforcing the pump tunnel. I know several have done it, but start with sending STSPerformance a PM. Others will chiime in.
Bilge pumps should be OEM included. Get one or more.
The keg...Make a bracket so you can remove the keg before you take it in for service. You should be good to go.

Welcome to greenhulk punisher. I haven't suffered any gelcoat cracking in the pump tunnel on my T-X so far (knock on wood). The bilge pumps are mandatory because a jetski will sink with in minutes with only a small leak (very small hull). Use 2 500-750 gph RULE bilge pumps that are wired seperately in case one fails from corrosion etc. Put the switches and fuses or breakers in the glove box. Enjoy your ski (break it in easy) and kick some yamaha butt.

The keg won't fit the RXT-X. we tried that already and for sure will slow ya down at least 2-3 MPH. "Try the butter ball Keg" smaller than OEM Kegs and won't slow ya down much.....depending on how you drink
