Exhaust Filter MIA
During WOT @ 7650 RPM+, ski started to drop RPM suddenly around 6500 and bump again to 7400... and kept doing that if i tried to WOT. ( 30 hours )
Before having that issue, my ski was making a different tone when starting up, something like a boxer engine.
I just had to give some throttle and sound was back to normal.
Other than that I could WOT no problem ( 25 hours ).
Now, whenever I try to start the ski on the water, i have to crank 2-3 times and it will start.
Out of the water I have no problem, 1st try it will start up.
I decided to check my exhaust filter and found out it was gone! (30 hours)
Now I think my exhaust filter is stuck somewhere in the waterbox, I can't find it anywhere else.
What a bother lol.

No I didn't since it was a very small portion that was bent.
I guess even the small bent mean replace it?
I know someone on the forum had similar issue, you can see it didn't even hold on the side wall.

Yeah, I tough it will just hold fine like the one you can find in some Mercruiser engine.
I guess I was wrong, now problem is... not sure if it is stuck in the WB or not lol
I don't mind replacing the filter, but damn! I sure hope it is not stuck in the WB lol.

I'm going to cut the remaining filter and run it like that until I get a brand new filter.
That part ain't cheap ~ $150
Ps: MGM, do you have a schematic for the inside of the WB?
