300X Exhaust Filter Reverse Cable
Hi Guys Girls,
Just a spot of information that may help some i have a 300X with 58 hours on the clock last week
noted lack in top speed and only revving out to 7200 and pulling 95kph disappointing I know, back in the day would have killed for
95 kph looked around on posts and noted issues with exhaust filter thought would pull out and have a look and yes the aluminium
gauze had fallen out and jammed. Problem with lack of power doesn't come from the gauze falling out but the gauze getting into
water box and jamming the hell out off it and when i say jammed i mean jammed after approx. an hour with a 5 mm wire shaped as a hooked
it came out, I have seen child birth performed easier. I have attached some photos for ease. I have also attached photo of reverse cable for
any one that has had a problem with a stiff reverse lever it shows how the cable was stuck under the water box crushing the cable and melting the outer
this is a factory problem as it is the first time water box had been removed. But i must say 300X definitely has had to have had help from
NASA because it is a rocket and love every time I push that Orange key at any cost.

We will have to have people installing the new filters or with the 2013 models keep a close eye on these new filters so we can start getting an idea of the lifespan of these.

My cousin 2011 300x was due for a filter change and when the new filter came out he ask the dealer to have the new style, as soon as he put it in, the ski was hard to start when it was in the water, he took it out and put his old one back and his problem were solved, so he bought the old style one leftover and never done it afterward. The big hole in the middle let to much moisture up to the engine

Maybe he idled through an extended 4 knot zone. Even with a good filter, if I ran hard, then idled for 5 minutes of so, let the ski sit for an hour or more, I'd notice a slightly harder start (not as if the filter was gone, just slightly different). I expect this situation might be worse but I'd say normal use you wont notice the difference.
