I watched my dealer replace mine on the X2. They made it look pretty easy, although, if the X9 is a DD, YMMV. Be sure to do it when the tank is dry as you will most likely need to lift it up a bit, if not remove it completely.

It is definately a 2-person job, so bring a (sober) friend along for the ride.

ZERKS!

On our 93, the steering is becoming tight. We found a strange size zerk that has just about disentigrated. Anyone know where to get them? We have tried auto/boat shops and they don't carry them. Very interesting...it isn't the same size as the others in the steering/cable area.

They finally got rid of the throttle cable with "Drive By Wire" When are they going to ditch the steering cable? I'm not sure I'm ready for that yet.

The only thing we have been able to do is pack the zerk with grease and tape it up...that we do every morning we ski. Guess I'll be calling MC to find it. There are three of them and the one in the very back of the boat is a different size..smaller. What did they do that for?

My 93 has 3 and I can hit them all with the same fitting. Where's this odd-sized one?

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Odd size thread. Anyone know what size thread? It is smaller than the rest. Mine pumps the grease out as soon as you take the gun off. Nobody seems to have the small size.
