    water in hull - tips.?

    hey guys went riding with a mate today who just had a b kit and ecu reflash completed to his 2011 rxpx

    went for an hour or so and when returned noticed water in hull..

    could the extra boost cause carbon seal failure , ski only has 10 hours... with no probs prior to install of bkit .

    what ways can i check carbon seal leak.?? ski has only minor cavitation ...

    if not carbon seal, any other tips, hints to look for, bout to head off for 2 weeks of riding and it couldnt have happened at a worse time

    any tips would be greatly appreciated...

    thanks.

    Check all hoses and clamps. I wouldn't rule out the carbon seal because it's new.. usually if it's leaking there were be water that has sprayed around on everything in the hull.. not just on the bottom since it comes in under pressure. You won't know for sure until you ride it again and start looking for the leak. Good luck.

    I had a simular problem turned out to be drain plug. It crossed threaded and allowed water to come in. The new drain plugs seem to be a little harder to screw in so I just put a touch of grease on them at times and that seems to help.

    You could try a zip tie around the carbon seal boot.

    OEM bilige should remove most of the water if is a small leak. Must be decent leak if you have water in Hull once you remove ski from water.
    I would check OEM siphon plumbing.

    U can raise the front of the ski up and Fill the rear of the ski with water up to the Carbon seal and see if it leaks out!

    How much water are we talking about here? Have you done anything to the prop/nozzle recently?
