Leaky exhaust pics
My 6 month old ,80 hour '06 RXP has a leaking exhaust pipe. It sprays down towards the sc on the hose or in the water. I thought it was something else until I started it in the water today. I guess its off to the dealer tomorrow morning. I know them so it SHOULDN'T be a problem. The exhaust pipe is $673.00 retail.
What sucks is my '99 Ultra did the same thing at 2 hours and it was out of sight and very small. The real problem was it sprayed into the air intake and slightly bogged the motor at WOT. That was a pain, but the dealer finally fixed it.
Should have taken pics with water spraying, that would have been real clear.

Do you ride in saltwater? That's a lot of corrosion in that pipe! I wonder what the inside of that J-Pipe looks like?

About 20% of the time and always flushing with salt away, except for this one. Superduty can tell us the salt content, it's 6 or 7 miles from the bay.
