2010 rxt-x 260 melt down
A few weeks ago my ski overheated, I had the ski sitting on the trailor on the ramp at the beach just letting it run, I had put new antifreeze in the engine as was just letting it get up to temp to check things over. So in doing so I guess my graco filter got clogged with sediment from the ramp. So the next morning I'm thinking all is good jump on the ski and start ripping. Well like I said the graco was clogged and I melted down the exhaust to the point that it melted the support bracket under the muffler, part of the hull, and the frickin exhaust temp sensor melted too.
My question is after I get the exhaust all squared away with new parts is ther a good way to make sure that there is no blockage in the water lines do I don't have the same issue again

Glad to see ya back on the forums(not under these circumstances obviously).
I'm confused as to how the water going to the IC made your exhaust overheat. I think it was Diablo666 had a similar issue recently where his muffler melted too.
A guy told me CJ @ J&J had a 2010 RXTX for sale with a new motor. I thought it was yours.

Exhaust temp warning did go off but I guess by that time the damage was done. Just my luck
