    I just posted this in another thread becasue someone was asking so will add here as well.

    copyrights belong to SHOBiz. lol

    Thanks again Dave for helping me do this the first time.





    It is possible to leave the intake grate AND rideplate on while removing the pump. If you just need more room to work and get to bolts, take off just the rideplate.
    Remove Reverse bucket
    Remove the 2 flat rubber sound dampening flaps from the transom
    Remove Steering cable from nozzle NOTE: you can just leave the steering nozzle and ring on for now, they are easier to remove once the pump is out.
    Remove hose from left side of pump
    If attached, Remove gay spray hose from top of pump
    Remove 4 bolts attaching pump
    Remove Exit Nozzle NOTE: there are small tabs on the exit nozzle and on the actual pump to use a flathead on to pry between. It doesn't take much effort to separate them.
    Remove pump, This point is why I always completely remove the rideplate as I always need to be able to get at the tabs on the side from the bottom to pry the pump off.
    Shaft and impeller come out attached
    All that is left in the rear end is the transom and impeller housing now.

    If already have an aftermarket impeller installed remove the impeller nose cone.

    Place the impeller removal tool on the shaft
    Place closed end of a 1 inch wrench over removal tool
    Place the shaft tool on the splines on the shaft and place the tool into a vise to hold the shaft

    Using the 1 inch wrench turn CLOCKWISE (it's reverse threaded) to loosen the Impeller. It will take some force and you may need to put a bar or something on the wrench to get even more leverage.

    Remove the impeller, clean the shaft, apply some anti seize to the threads on the shaft and install the new impeller and impeller nose cone. NOTE: you don't have to crank on the new impeller. Just get on there pretty tight, and the first time you hole shot the ski it will take care of it's self.

    Apply marine grease to the shaft splines

    Reverse to reinstall, I seal the pump up with 5200. Other things can be used, but 5200 is so easy to come by.

    It's pretty easy to do..just be careful when you pull the prop off. It is opposite of righty tighty,lefty loosey. Just remember that.

    Be careful with the speedo wheel too, it just drops down when you remove the screws, and you have to remove them first.

    Keep all your bolts ina small container so you do not lose them...you have quite a few that need to come off.

    Follow the instructions above and you'll be fine.

    On my GP1300R i would change prop weekly at the ramp when ever no issue simple.

    My friends FZR i have neve seen anything like it the prop torque up so much that he broken his big ass vice shifter an anything else he has tryed. Considering teh props only been on for like 10mins its a bitch to screw off.

    Do I need an impeller removal tool for removing/ installing the stock fzr prop or can I just do it with a wrench? Thanks

    For a GPR, but same concept applies.
    Apply anti-sieze to the threads prior to install.

    Thanks Tommy, I already knew about the shaft holding tool but I thought there was an impeller removal tool also.

    http://www.cajundude.com/impellerinstall.htm I saw this one too.

    So correct me if I'm wrong.... for the oem prop I can just use a wrench to remove/install but if I go aftermarket I will need a prop tool?
