2002 4-Tec Exhaust Gas Leak
I have a leak in my exhaust. It's just behind the clamp where there seems to be a mesh flexible stainless steel section attached to the start of the exhaust pipe. It could be this flexible section that is leaking.
I suspect the reduction in top speed I've experienced is due to exhaust gasses entering the hull.
Can anyone tell me if this component is repairable? Or can it be reconditioned? Or do I need to scrap it?

Welcome to the forum.
If the j pipe is leaking, best just to replace It. They are usually some used in the classifieds.

But MaxDive, yes that flex joint can burn out inside and leak and it will make your ski run bad, especially at full throttle, no power, chokes off and dies due to no oxygen to motor. One way to test it is to pull the seat off and make a run, it will run fine then.
