    Ski stopped HELP please

    Hey guys, my RXTX just stopped on me today and won't start, I pulled the seat off and noticed the exhaust clamp has blown off, do these engines need back pressure to run?? Any help appreciated cheers

    No these engines do not need back pressure to run,Did you have any error codes come up when this happened???Have you put the exhaust back together and try starting it???ALso check the Exhaust temp sensor and make sure it is plugged in and not damaged...

    +1 on all the previous advice ... they need no back pressure to run, but they DO need fresh air, not exhaust. There is no oxygen in exhaust, so with the seat on and an exhaust leak, they will shut right down very quickly.
