    Thumbs down 300x Exhaust filter Gone Bad

    i have no idea what went wrong but yesterday i went with my bro for a ride out to the beach and on the way i saw that my 300x was only running 7000rpms and when i reached i smelt something burning and took of the seat and cover to find that the strap around the waterbox had started to burn/melt and shrivel .

    the craft only has about 19hrs on it !

    Just like what Sir said... +1.

    The core part of the exhaust filter must have fallen out and plugged up the exhaust flow in the water box which got hot as the hot exhaust can't get out easily, accumulating the heat.

    The title sounds like there is something wrong with the water box which is just a victim of the circumstance.

    yea i would like the title to be changes as you all were right it was th honey comb shaped part of the filter which corroded away and fell into the waterbox , so you can change the title to do with a bad filter or something.

    thanks

    What would cause the filter to fall out?

  8. #8
    When blowing out the water box, don't do it too excessively (not too high rpm) like over revving and limitter is hitting all the time. Danger there is that impeller may come loose on decel due to the inertia of the big impeller which tends to rotate ccw as you let go the throttle.

    Is there a write up on how to remove and inspect the filter ?

    Service manual shows exactly how and what to look for.
    Get one if you don't have it yet. That will be your BEST investment for your 300X.
