What’s new at Hydrobikes LLC

Fall is a time of transition and change. At Funwatercraft, we’re changing too!

Now that the original company is back in control of Hydrobikes, the old Funwatercraft Hydrobikes company is no longer. We’ve reorganized, restructured, and now operate the business as Hydrobikes LLC.

Hydrobikes LLC would like to thank everyone for their business and contributions this season. We are growing quickly and working hard to put dealers in key places to serve our growing Hydrobike community.

As mentioned in our Summer Edition, we have an initiative underway to add dealers local to you to improve your level of service. We’re also offering licensing agreements to country distributors to take Hydrobike Explorer worldwide.

Contact John at 1-888-403-9012, or via email at to receive a dealer info kit and more information. You can also learn more at

New Product Improvements

The 2014 Hydrobike Explorer has new features that offer outstanding advantages over previous models dating back 25 years now.

New Lever Arm AssemblyNew Lever Arm Assembly

For 2014 we have a new drivetrain lever arm assembly that eliminates the original assembly needing a mounting block and 3 clamping bands to fasten the drivetrain lever arm. This is a solid one piece bracket that bolts into existing drivetrain housing holes, with a quick release lever arm that will help to make transport and storage much easier.

Give us a call at 1-888-403-9012 to save 10% in the month of November and December for this upgrade.

Propeller Seal 'Saver'

In the past it was possible for fishing line to wind around the propeller shaft and cut the seals that keep oil in and water out. Seal ‘savers’ prevent that from happening and promise to be an important feature in adding to the longevity of our Hydrobike drivetrains.




Fall is a good time to check for leakage around your propeller shaft. Quick attention to leakage can add many years of life to your Hydrobike. Take a look for any signs of leakage.

Call us to add a ‘seal saver’ to protect your investment

If your seals need replacement or you would like to have an extra set just in case, call 1-888-403-9012 to order and we’ll add the new ‘seal saver’ at no extra cost.

Maintenance Tip - Oil Change and Propeller Leakage

As you prepare for the upcoming winter, please keep in mind that this time of year is a good time to change the oil in your Hydrobike drivetrain. While you’re at it, make it a point to check for any signs of leakage from the propeller end.

Annual oil changes and prop seal checks take minutes but will certainly pay back in years of enjoyment and trouble free operation.


Call us at 1-888-403-9012 for your drivetrain oil refill kit, to replace leaky propeller shaft oil seals, or to add a seal ‘saver’ to extend the life of your propeller oil seals and protect your drivetrain. Part installation instructions are included.

Refer to your Owner’s Manual, or the diagram below for your oil change.
