    Re: 2011 GTI SE130 clicking but not starting

    Thanks for the correction, Grump. I haven't had the pleasure of a four-stroke yet.

    But to that end, is there a way to manually turn it to be sure it is free to move?

    Re: 2011 GTI SE130 clicking but not starting

    Have you tried to turn the drive coupling by hand, just to make sure the engine/pump is not mechanically fouled?

    Re: Pulled pump cone. Only water inside

    If it was clear, this was a recent occurrence. You would not have gotten away with riding all summer with water in the bearings. Consider yourself lucky, so far.

    Re: Need help with winterizing GTX DI

    One additional thought... you may need to pinch-off some of the exiting hoses to limit draining and completely fill the cooling system, as noted by the pisser doing its thing.

    Re: 2001 rx di "hi temp" alarm

    I think you could get most of it clear without removing the engine. Head off to clear the cylinder case, and exhaust pipe to clear it. Check branch lines for open with water pressure.
