Free Flow exhaust rubber pipe burst! flooded the hull
Went riding today and about 20mins in my FZR cut off and would not start! Removed the seat and notice water pouring into the hull. After towing it back to shore, noticed the rubber connector pipe from the Riva free flow exhaust burst and the blue rubber pipe connecting to the waterbox was completely loose (tighten it yesterday). I just installed the TBM super pump cone (checked clearance between cone and solas prop several times) could the exhaust failure be caused by the pump pressure being too high? Would it be better to install the Riva rear exit exhaust and and Riva Racing Pro series waterbox? What else may have cause the piping to failure? heat? Any advice appreciated. Thanks

it's looks like the pipe is blistered and hose melted, you have a blockage somewhere or a hose came out.
NOTE: By any chance did you install the riva pump strainer and put the hole facing the back of the pump because that will do it the hole is suppose to face the front.

That baby got HOT. Like Jim said, you have a water flow problem somewhere.

Jim is taling about the strainer block itself. there is an opening only on one end of the strainer block. If it is installed 180 degrees/backwards, water supply will not happen. the opening in the strainer block must be matched up to the hole/opening in the pump stator. If you look at the right pic above, you can see there is a hole in the pump stator below the two front bolts. The strainer opening, (recessed when installed0, but also have the opening facing this hole for water supply.
