    The only one I remember reading about is just removing the outer insulation that holds a bunch of dead weight when wet. If you find something different post the link.

    No-- it is not in an XPL anyhow. You just have to mod it correctly You know the surge the XPL haul is know for after leaving a had turn or excellerating from idle that the GSXL, RX or even the GTX does not have? That can be almost elimantated by changes to the water box I will not tell someone how to do it.

    PM me if you would like the service

    my xpl goes 74 mph plus i think i know what works. mel miller tested all different kinds of boxes on dyno. if you are running twin pipes a di waterbox works the best, if not then stock is the best period.

    Thanks for all your replys what about if you cut the original box open and strip some of it out?? Would that make and difference or just a noise difference??
    Also the box between the exit and the water box I've heard you can get the 96 model parts to take that out is that right or is there any other way thanks

    If you strip it, it just gets louder. I got a stock but gutted one and a normal one. The gutted one is just very loud actually sometimes anoying even for the rider and no gains what so ever. I placed the normal one back. I agree with wickedseadoo. Stock is just the best. I believe they don't even make aftermarket waterboxes for these craft. I know that groupk made a little mod on the waterinjection on the waterbox of the 800cc.
