Thread: Exhaust Hole?

  1. #1

    Exhaust Hole?

    I just took out my 1997 Sea Doo GTS and it seems to have developed a hole in the exhaust. When I reversed flushed it, water comes out of the hole. I noticed during the last run at the lake; I took the seat off and there was more water than normal. I guess I will have to replace the exhaust piece. Has anyone else had this problem before, and is there anyway besides replacement to fix it?
    The hole is below -well here is a picture...
    Thanks for any help..Click image for larger version.

    Thanks for the offer. Just got it back- Looks just like the one in your picture there. Put it back on and we are back in business. Thanks for all the help. By the way, tried the JB Weld method, hole was too big and the JB would seep into the hole so I was forced to do it right and TIG weld it. The guy said it was probably electrolysis because the guy I bought it from said he ran it in salt water once or twice and probably did not flush it correctly. Fired up and ready to go.
