    2008 RXT-X, water is coming in!!!

    I was out riding and i noticed that i'm getting tons of water in. I was suspecting the heat exchanger but i was wrong.....it's the intercooler. Is it possible to fix it or i have to get a new (used) intercooler??? Please PM me or text/call me if you have one for sale or you can help me to fix it. I'm in the Washington DC metro area.
    Thanks

    u said u had water in your hull not that u were down on power like it was eating water in the engine..........i would SUSPECT its not blowing water into the throttle body/mani now but all the same could just as soon as u fix it....i would also SUSPECT u got LUCKY and have an EXTERNAL LEAK ILO of an INTERNAL LEAK just a guess but all the same u weld that seam then fill the entire portion the air flows thru with water while its setting on the end the water lines are on........u plug one water inlet/outlet and jack air pressure without going crazy to the other inlet/outlet and watch for bubbles in the water
    ..............no bubbles and u should feel air coming out the bleed off and u good to go Homey....i just did it today and sent the guy a vid of me doing it so he would know the 09 X cooler he bought was good to go.......takes a bit to dry them out but u know what u got then either way.........
    ...............PERIOD!!!!!!!!!

    Is that the standard intercooler that came with the ski when you purchased it or did you upgrade it?
    Was just curious since I have the same ski..

    That looks like the stock intercooler. That`s exactly how my one went....ends of the intercooler swelled. Mine started to leak internally though...so iv`e replaced it with the Riva Gen 3 from the store. Really nice piece of kit...very well made. Way better than the stocker.
