    Exhaust fumes in hull

    Today i removed my seat on my T-x after riding for a while.

    I noticed some slight exhaust fumes,not very much but it was there.

    Later on on the trailer i looked again started the engine hit the throttle a little but no visible leaks .

    The exhaust might leak on the clamp which connects him to the manifold.
    But this was not visible.

    The rubber connecting hose was tight, and i don't believe the manifold itself would leak.

    Did anybody experience the same fumes under the seat?

    was it defo exhaust fumes? do you spray your engine with wd40? sometimes this well intended action can lead to the spray getting hot and fumey...possibly your prob

    Yes i spray the engine with WD40 after every ride!

    Performance is ok,hit 8140 rpm,s on slight chop.

    Might be the answer.

    Thanks Mark.

    yep more likely your prob...you would be amazed how that stuff builds up.....epecially if you spray after every ride,allso runs down the engine when hot and ends up brownish colour in the hull .
    Hope thats it ...

    I think so.

    Exclamation Be careful man....

    I know a guy who bought a used seadoo way back in the day. Somehow one of the gas lines started leaking (sounded like the previous owner had messed with it). This guy was no pwc expert so he did not notice.

    Anyway, one day he is riding his ski in FL and *boom* the freaking thing explodes . He gets launched off of the ski (luckily with only minor burns) as the things bursts into flames .

    It was later determined that gas was actually leaking into the engine compartment! Apparently the bilge pump started and sparked the fuel, creating an explosion in his engine compartment.

    Anyway, the moral of the story is you don't f%!k with gas leaks. Check it out "thoroughly" and be safe...

    Since you're using a Kanaflex intake, I'm assuming you're using a catch can too. Remember, it vents inside the hull; crankcase vapors!

    I don't use the catch can.

    Left the breather hose in the original position.

    No problems so far,the crankcase vapors are minimal to none.

    In stock position the crankcase vapors ,go directly in the air intake.
    That for sure will not increase performance!

    I'm pretty sure it's the wd40 on the engine .

    This is probably a dumb question haha but why do you guys use wd 40? for a degreaser?

    think they're using the wd40 for more of a corrosion stop when riding in saltwater. works good even if you dont ride in salt water, just keeps stuff from rusting. also makes your rubber hose's look shiny and brand new hahaha
