Water Leak in ski, need HELP please.....
So I have an 08' seadoo rxp-x that has 109 hours on the clock. I was at the lake the other day for literally 30 minutes and never cut up what so ever. I get back to the dock and load the ski up on the trailer, i go to unscrew the back left drain plug (valve train side) and a tab bit more than a drop comes out, not much to stress about, rite...... I then unscrew the back right drain plug (Intake/intercooler side) and about 1/8th-1/4 cup of water comes out. I have cut up ridiculously times before with the OEM intake setup and even keeping the ski in the water over nite at my camps and still never had that amount of water come out the drain plug/s. I'm glad I caught it as it wasn't a lot but most I ever had. Usually it's bone dry after a lil ride
**I have recently added:
RIVA I/C relocation kit
RIVA rear exhaust kit
RIVA Intake manifold upgrade
Solas 15/22r with s/f nose cone (o-ring still installed in s/f cone from green cone that came with solas prop)
I don't know what can cause the leak? I do know that the ski was on an incline when I unscrewed the drain plugs but still was enough to get me thinking!
ANY suggestions for helping me find/solve the problem would be greatly appreciated! I'm trying to make the Morgan City ride as I don't have a bilge system on my ski yet. Don't wanna get caught out in the Bayou with a boat sinking!

When is the Morgan city ride? You can always buy the bilge pump at your local academy's or something.

We had a leak on our bone stock gti the weekend we got it back from having a new motor installed in it at the dealer. We decided to back it back into the water with the seat off and just ran it on the trailer. turns out the dealer "forgot" to tighten two bolts on the top of the motor, causing water to shoot out of the motor and flooding the hull. We called the dealer and sent it back to them and they fixed it on the spot. Shocking how a dealer can just "forget" too tighten a bolt that could have flooded the ski if we had been on a long ride
