    2005 gp1300r ring joint failure

    i have a 2005 gp1300r all stock.
    does anyone know what would cause the ring joint on the exhaust to crack and therefore leak massive amounts of water? its the section of exhaust coming off of manifold. i ordered a used one but it is pointless for me to put on if its going to crack again. ive searched the forum and many others and have not found anyone else with this problem.
    PLEASE HELP MEEEE!

    I have seen exhaust cracks caused by water freezing in there because it was not revved to clear out the water when getting ready for winter. As a matter of fact, the one was on a boat that locked up from running lean, it could not have had all the water drained since it broke on the water. However, since you are listed in FL, I would not think that would be the case unless you bought it from a northerner.

    the ski was running fine no leaks at all from end of march till two weeks ago when i noticed it wasnt pissin at all. slide seat back while i was riding and saw the ring joint had cracked and was spraying water out like crazy. i immediately beached it and had my dad come tow me back in his boat.

    Thats what im hoping. The ski was sitting for two years in NJ under a second story deck that leaked water everytime it rained and my stepdad didnt care for it at all until i took it off his hands and moved to florida. maybe water sitting in exhaust over the years froze and thawed weakening it until it eventually cracked on me?? i found one used for 90 bucks with the manifold still attached on ebay. ill have that on next friday when i get it. Hope it doesnt crack again cuz a brand new one is 450$ off pretty much all the oem parts finders

    Doesn't look stock to me. Looks like someone piece it back together. Is that pipe black? All pipes on the 2005 should be silver. And they don't come with red/orange looking silicone on the pipe from the factory. That pipe has been apart and someone has tried to silicone it to probably stop the water leak. The pipe shouldn't even hold water there to crack during the winter months, maybe a little in the cylinders or the bottom of the manifold. I would like to see a picture of the entire motor.
