    How to tow your Honda on the water

    Had an occasion to loose a rider a couple of weekends ago. This required having to tow my F12X many miles back to the trailer. I had to stop several times to start it up and get he water out of the exhaust system to prevent problems.

    So the Question is: Is there a recomended proceedure or device that can block off the water intrusion into the exhaust system to prevent this from happening so that it can be towed at more than a snails pace?

    There might possibly be something in the manual, but have been unable to find mine.

    The intake grate being forced through the water MAY be able to generate the very slightest amount of pressure before it exits the nozzle [due to the nozzle's restriction]. I have always doubted whether it was possible to generate enough velocity pressure to fill the waterbox to overflowing and inundate the turbo. When my '02 [back in '03] ate a valve 12 miles up river from the ramp we towed it at 30 miles per hour behind Ricks and got no water in it.
    See ya'll Saturday for the Suwannee ride!

    wanted to bump this thread as I am also interested. Got almost stranded 10 miles off-shore last year when my ski ate a rope. This year I bought sea-tow but am wondering what good it will do me if the thing cant be towed?

    I've towed one at 15 mph for 15 miles no issues with the ski afterwards no water back flowed.

    Read the owners manual,… Everything you need to know about towing is there. Keep it under 10 MPH.
