Will this work? Sound Mat
Been concerned about the noise level with the Free Flow exhaust on my 2001 12r. So I am adding the stock sound supression and this soundproofing mat.
I contacted sounproofing.org and they set me up with this mat (picture attached) . It is 1" thick and can withstand temps to 220 degrees.
I initially planned on cutting it to fit inside the top back half of the hull to keep it out of the splash. Now I am considering putting it on the top half of the water box also -
Anyone have a guess to the operating temp of the box ?

man those 1200 must be loud with the free flows! Why would you need the mat when you are putting the SS back in?
Ridding with 3 1300 with free flows a few weeks ago they are quite can you get a 1300 water box?

For me...It was to loud between 3K and 5K RPM's this is where i ride it with my kids and they were afraid of the noise. Above 6k RPM's it is tolerable.
I figure it cant hurt anything if nothing else I can whisper around the lake and maybe surprise a few people.

Yes, it works great. I wrapped a similar product around my Riva free-flow in two layers. Just use some heavy duty tie-wraps. A warning though. I had an overheating incident once when my water supply hose popped off and the mat melted all over the place.

I put sticky sound deadener pads, that are used inside auto doors and trunk floors, on my waterbox with no problems. I also used the 1300 rubber FF tube instead of the 1200 metal one, sounds nice and throaty and it's not irritating.

Spray-on Truck Bed Liner from wal-mart. You would be amazed what that will do for sound deadening. Just spray the sh*t out of the area behind the battery box wall including the waterbox too.
Easy and cheap.

Spraying your ski with stuff and adding junk just adds more weight to the already heavy GPR. Use a PVC pipe for the freeflow, I used it back in 2000 in Jetskidaddy's ski and it still kicking.

when i had the free flow, i used a PVC Pipe and then sprayed the bed liner in the back and never saw any problems.
The bed liner trick was an idea that came from Foolboogie (David Booth) in Houston and i tried it and liked it. It's just another option out there for you that works, but you can use what ever Jesus tells you to use.
Here are some pics of the PVC Pipe Free Flow as well as the junk to spray in the back.
