    VXR taking on water


    It looks like the water is breaching the hull from the ride plate brackets.
    I looked at it closer today when I was putting in the Riva ff exhuast,the white foam felt almost uncured?? The epoxy looked fine tho.Anybody know of a way besides using those aftermarket brackets to seal her up?
    Thanks Matt

    This is a very common problem on all the VXR/FZR/SHO skis and an easy problem to fix.
    Be sure to watch the video located in the link to the store

    I used to find pieces of the sealant, used to seal these brackets, in my hull after rides so I'm sure this is where my leak is coming from as well....I've had a leak since as long as I can remember. Originally thought it might've been coming from the crimped piece on the flush port hose

    Cody you need to order the billet inserts for your ski and be done with it. No more water in my VXR since I've installed mine.

    So that was the culprit ehh? Well what about the intake grate insert? The rear bracket on mine is where the sealant looks to be lacked the most.

    That may be a problem area for you also. Pull it loose and reseal it with some 5200
