    Stator refurb

    This isn't necessarily Kawasaki specific, but since that's what I have, I'm posting it here.

    I'm in the process of doing some maintenance on the jet pump, and along with a worn impeller, I'm...

    Re: ZXI Impeller Removal

    I ended up putting a wrench on the impeller removal tool, pushing on it, and smacking it with a hammer at the same time.

    I'm sure an impact gun would have been the ideal way to go, but who has...

    Pro-tip. Having a solid vice makes all the difference. I was trying to use a clamp-on bench vise, and coming up empty while chasing the work bench across the shop.

    After putting it in the nice...

    Re: ZXI Impeller Removal

    I'm seeing an impeller holder mentioned in the shop manual as well, and I've found a couple online, but I'm not paying $100 for a tool I'll use once or twice. I could potentially make one, but I...

    ZXI Impeller Removal

    I'm in the process of rebuilding the pump on my 02 ZXI 1100. I have the impeller tool, and in trying to get it off yesterday, no amount of yanking, banging, or swearing could get it to budge.

    Re: 02 ZXI 1100 Pump Maintenance

    My apologies for the delay. Things have been a little crazy at work (where I'm keeping the pump since that's where I'll most likely be working on it this winter)

    The trailing edges don't look too...

    That seal seemed to be in pretty good shape. The whole housing was in solid, and I had to work pretty hard to get it out because of that seal. I suppose it can't hurt to add a new one to the rebuild...

    I haven't noticed any water in the hull, so I'm sure the shaft seal is fine.

    What pump seals should I be looking at?

    The intake grate looks fine with no damage anywhere.

    I do plan to replace the bearings since I have the whole assembly out.

    That sounds simple enough. I've heard that it may be necessary to heat/freeze the parts to get them together, too.

    Re: 02 ZXI 1100 Pump Maintenance

    I would replace the wear ring, but I've yet to find a decent how-to on it, other than "it's a real pain in the butt". Even the shop manual doesn't tell how to do it. It just says "replace it."

    02 ZXI 1100 Pump Maintenance

    Re: ZXI Maintenance

    How much of an issue with rodents would I be looking at if I removed the pump this fall and left it over the winter? I'm assuming the drive shaft comes through the hull so there'd be an open hole?

    ZXI Maintenance
