    Welcome to the Forum! about the only thing that you can do is take out the resonator if it has one. leave the waterbox alone. you need that. deleting it causes problems and trust me...the drone is terrible on a two stroke. not much you can do besides ride it or go to an RXP

    You can Cut the waterbox open at the outlet end(end that goes to resonator) and remove a few baffles this will make it barky. We only did this on race skis its a PITA for a rec ski as it gets tiresome listening to it.
    "Then weld it back together".

    Just put the exhaust hose from an 98 xpl on it as it deletes the resonator. I just did this a few weeks ago. Got the hose and the through hull for 35 bucks.

    Check out my 2000 restoration project in my sig. I got picks of the parts...

    what's the difference between a 98 xp exhaust hose and a 01 hose?

    Ohh I see the resonator is in the exhaust hose so if I switch out the hoses this will make it a deeper throaty sound????

    Sure will, plus its safer. Those plastic resonators have a history of splitting and sinking skis...

    +1 I've done this. When you get the water of out cut off the skinny side and weld it back together. I did his 7 years ago and haven't looked at it since. Good luck!!!
