    Exclamation MT Waterbox ideas

    I for one am trying to find an easy solution for emptying the WB.
    My reasons for this, is because I store her in my garage, one foot off the Gyprok wall. So starting it every day or so is a pain.
    I have to get the boss to start it while I hold a buck over the exhaust.

    Corey and Waz are right in saying , you will empty it over a couple of days.
    Some of us may have nieghbours or live in a situation where you cant make that much noise after hours.

    Corey mentioned putting a drain at the back of the BW and hooking it upto the drain plug.
    Im looking for a faster method.
    After a ride it takes me 1.5 hours to clean the beast.
    I then drive 2 km's too get all the water out of the trailer area's.
    Then she sits high on the driveway for around 7 hours. I start it 2 times extra during the 7 hours.
    Then I would like that to be the end of it. Outside of spraying the internals.

    Any idea's please post away no matter how silly the idea may be

    dont think you will find a faster method than the one i mentioned, how slow are you at turning a drain cock, or undoing a bung?

    I think he means easier ie less work. I just think its funny this is still a topic of conversation. Wot you really want to empty the wb quick just delete it and buy a pair of ear plugs

    not quite the answer i was looking for.
    you guy's dont want to change your box, then dont.
    some of the members on hear have made changes that dont need doing.
    but i didnt critisise them.

    I will say I had success using Nicjak's method of blowing out the Waterbox with the Bow elevated today. This does seem to blow out some extra water that has accumulated towards the back of the waterbox. . . . great idea Nic!

    I went "toe to toe" today on my 260 vs a "speed bypass" modded 300 Ultra today . . . I am still licking my wounds. I am not too surprised by the outcome, but how about a little respect???

    After a lot of thought,,I'd have to say coreys idea seems to be the best and easiest solution.toughest part I see is getting the bung welded on to the water box.

    yes thats the easiest, but i want it to be dry. Not drip for ages waiting for it to get out.
    The holes that run through the baffles are very small.
    For the water to get from the front to the back will take a while.

    The baffle plates are only spot welded in a few places , So the water still finds its way to the rear if the front is elevated like the owners manual says

    and thats why its so important to start the ski over the next few days and rev it up

    because the water takes a few hrs to drain threw the tight gap.Waz
    I have my box out and it seems to drain to the back pretty quickly when elevating the front... I gotta play with it a bit yet.

    gee your a tough guy and not asking for much lmao

    steve getting a bung welded would actually be the easiest part and fabbing the rear of the hull wouldnt take all that much either, good luck with nutting it out guys..

    vman yes when the box is in your hand with water in it the water does move rather fast
