    Ex filter gaskets

    I removed the exhaust filter after 34 hours, looks great.
    I want to re-use the gaskets.
    What is good for cleaning them?
    I noticed there is a charchole finish on then, so I don't want to wash that off.

    I also pulled the plugs. For the first time in years they are black, not rusty.
    Before I stuck the plugs back in, I stuck a micro camera down and saw what looks like valves and they are all black, hope that is a good sign.

    Now here's a clever man! I would say Black is good, Brown would require more inspection.

    But sounds like you should replace those Spark Plugs. JB

    Can somebody explain or provide a link into what the "exhaust filter" is, what it does, and why it's on there? Why is it on the 300X and not the 250X? This appears to be unique to the 300X.

    Oh no please, let's not.

    There are probably 100 threads on the exhaust filter already. A quick search will give you all the answers and more.

    replacement is not required ,

    as the ski has been flushed and idled back threw the no wake zone for atleast 8mins getting back to his ramp ( that I know were it is and how its located ),

    so under those mentioned conditions the plugs WILL blacken up.

    now if you were to chop the throttle at a 35mph run and seen black it might be a different story , but still NOT needing replacement unless they are miss firing

    Black is safe
    WHITE not so safe
    BROWN not so bad , depending on riding style

    I think WOTMAN is just happy to be getting 35hrs + out of 1 set of plugs , and not 35 sets of plugs in 1 hr like before ( maybe a small bit exaggerated )

    Got the filter welded today.
    My stainless guy said the steel mesh part is like new.

    Before I put the fitler back in.
    I soaked it in rust converter for 10 minutes.
    Took it back to brand new.
    I think if you treat the steel each time you take it out to inspect.
    The filter can last as long as the engine.

    Ex filter gaskets

    Why did you weld it they don't fail there it's the honey comb inside that fails. No way to weld that better.
