    Purpose and necessity of fins in the jet pump support?

    We took the pump off of my 06 Challenger 180 CS because I was only getting 35mph and the boat is supposed to do 48 or so. I thought the impeller was going to be chewed up because the boat was cavitating out of the hole, but surprisingly the impeller and wear ring looked pretty good. We put...

    Front speaker wiring for c180?

    I want to install a pair of 6.5's in the bow of my 06 Challenger, but I'm not sure how to gain access to the inner part of the boat to run wires from the bow to the radio... For those of you who did this - what did you need to dismantle to be able to run the wires back to the passenger...

    Swapping out the old ceramic washers on a 185hp.....

    My friend is spring shopping for a ski. I convinced him on SeaDoo so we are going over some models to see what he likes out there. On the 185hp model skis like the GTX SC of approx 04-05.... If he bought one with low hours (<30 or so), would he be able to just have the washers switched out...

    Radio Problems

    I recently installed a Sony CD deck in my 97 Challenger 1800. The deck was purchased 2 years ago but kept brand new in the box until recently, due to lack of time and problems with my engines that have finally been resolved. The install went great and the radio and speakers sounded amazing...

    Good places for boating/jetskiing around Pittsburgh?

    So the obvious answer is "on the 3 rivers". But where else within driving distance of Pittsburgh is good for boating or jet skiing? I know about Put In Bay by Cedar Point in Ohio, Raystown Lake, and Lake Erie (by Conneaut and Erie, PA)... Any other suggestions? I'm trying to plan a...

    (Soon To Be) RXT-X 260 Owner!

    I'm currently in London on a 6 month assignment, but I have been itching to get an RXT-X since last summer. I finally decided to pull the trigger, so I just put a down payment on a 2012 RXT-X 260! :thumbsup: The dealer is installing a bilge pump kit, cruise control / no wake mode / ski mode...

    Reliability of the 260 engine?

    I did a search but could not find much on this... What is the reliability like on the 260 engine (more specifically - the RXT-X 260)? How many hours are they expected to perform for, before major repairs are needed? Or approx how many years of occasional use can be expected? (I live in...

    Cover for Stern Light Post?

    Does anyone know where I can find a rubber cover for my 97 Challenger 1800's stern light post? The factory one broke off, so the hole that the stern light plugs into is empty. I checked the OEM parts link, but no luck. Any links or advice is appreciated!

    The Damage...

    I just pulled the head and it looks worse than I hoped. My uneducated guess is that the rings let loose and broke apart, because it looks like they were thrown into the head and cut it up pretty good. Any opinions? I guess I will start pulling off the cylinders... I just wanted to post some...

    Where do you get your RAVE's shaved?

    I tried to shave down a set of RAVE's last season with my first rebuild. I used a sanding stone attachment on a drill and obviously had no idea what I was doing... so i shaved off what seemed to be too much because they wouldn't open properly even with cap adjustments. So now i'm doing...

    Replacement gas can spout

    Another thread that I was reading this morning reminded me of this... Can anyone recommend a replacement spout for 5 gallon plastic-ish gas cans? The eco friendly ones are absolutely ridiculous. I'm searching on Google and I will report back if I find one. I know that the new cans...

    Help getting titled in PA?

    The trailer that came with my ski had a Michigan title (the guy owned it since brand new)... But the DMV just sent my title application back to me saying I need to add the following information to my application: Requested gross weight - Gross combination weight (if applicable) - Gross...

    2010 vs 2011 model years of RXT-X

    Are these identical? I read several reviews of both years but it seems like they're the same ski. If there are any differences, could you list some? Or maybe link me somewhere? I'm thinking about upgrading to a 4 stroke supercharged ski :)

    Another new toy! (and winter jet skiing pics)

    I was planning some mods to my GP1200R, but I found a deal on a GP1300R (10 more horsepower, newer, 100 extra cc, fuel injected) so i picked it up. I'm gonna do the mods to that ski, and probably sell off the 1200. And since I got the new toy this weekend.... I just HAD to try it out! It...

    Compression question (Doc?)

    This is probably a stupid question, but I'll ask anyways... A guy said his ski needs a new starter (said that was the mechanic's diagnosis). I asked if compression was good and he had no idea what I was talking about. So if I wanted to buy it... I wouldn't be able to test compression...

    Challenger 1800 trailer dimensions?

    I'm house shopping and would like to buy one with a garage that would fit my Challenger 1800. Does anyone know the length and width of the trailer (approx)? I would measure, but my boat is in an underground mine storage facility 2 hours away. The boat is about 18 x 7.5... so I'm guessing...

    Pic of plugs from blown engine

    I decided to leave the top end of my blown engine buttoned up until spring since it is going into storage next week anyways, but this weekend I pulled the plugs to spray some fogging oil into the cylinders. I attached a pic of the plugs. I'm not well versed in "reading" them yet, but for...

    Pics from the weekend

    djredman99 and I went for a ride in pool 6 of the Allegheny today... The river had a bunch of debris from all the rainfall we had last week, but it was a nice afternoon. The water was cold but at least we had great weather (especially considering its October). My uncle and his friends were...
