    should i be worried?

    took my 2012 rxpx out today and made a rookie mistake of leaving the drain plugs out. i was constantly riding a decent speed 40-50 mph only stopping twice for maybe 5 mins each tops. i didnt notice the plugs were undone till i got back to the launch and pulled it out and when i noticed it as i went to tie the ski down there was no water in it. this being no less than 1 min from getting out of the water. i opened the hood and no water just a couple spots that were wet but not puddled. so my question is how the hell could it have not flooded out, should i be worried, and where is the air intake/ is it possible i sucked any water up. i never noticed a performance drop either... thanks guys

    If it is like my sea doo they are a one way opening. Besides you probably have self bailers in there so if you are moving it sucks the water out.

    yea i was rather surprised to see it pretty much dry minus water spots here and there. coming from when my buddy and i had two stroke seadoos he forgots his and it damn near sank by the time it got fifty feet from the dock.

    I dont think you should be worried. I have a 2011 gti and did the same thing not one drop was let in like 04g said I think its only one way. Scared the shit out of me though after a hour of riding Im like oh shit forgot plugs. leaned over the back screwed them in then lifted the seat thinking nothing but the worst ...Dry thank god..

    There is a small ball in the drain that doesn't allow water flow in.
    Only out.
    So you have no worries..

    Ive never in the seven years of owning my RXP ever put the drain plugs in. The check balls dont allow the water to come in and if there is water in the hull it actually flows out the back through the drain plugs while youre accelerating.

    Is there actually a way to remove this one way system? I like to get all the water out of mine but it's virtually impossible with this bungs cause the valve to empty the hull isn't at the very rear of the ski. If you know what I mean?
